In years past I bought Jack's costume. Those things can get expensive! Last year I bought a costume that without the head piece it wasn't much of a costume. Of course, Jack didn't want to wear it. I vowed that night to never go that route again. His costume had to be one that if the hat was gone he would still look dressed up.
I put together this scarecrow costume without too much work. We had this sheriffs hat that I put burlap on. The shirt is from Fabkids. I attached burlap to the overalls using safety pins so I could take it off without damaging the material. The most difficult part was the "straw". I found this great yellow/brown yarn at Walmart. I glued the yarn to felt and used velcro to attach to the inside of the overall legs. Mama's lipstick makes great scarecrow makeup. We threw on some rainboots and headed out the door.
My sister is having her baby today. We are all so excited!!! Baby girl Maybree should be here around two this afternoon. I'm working half a day and then heading up there and I've taken tomorrow off just to spend with the new baby.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
