Last year, we procrastinated on getting our costumes together early enough to share about them. I was looking through my phone the other day and saw our old pictures and just knew I should let you see! My now 18 month old was only 6 months old at the time and we had the hardest time getting her to hold still…but we were able to get a few pictures…although some are blurry because she was moving around everywhere!
This costume was super easy to put together. My older daughters, I just had them wear their costumes with jeans, and with the baby, I put tights under her onesie, so she’d have something to keep her warm.
Here’s what we did:
- White T-shirt or onesie
- Green felt
- Fabric glue
- Fake flowers (or flower clip)
- Head band
- Cut out a stem and leaves to be glued on the shirt.
- Use fabric glue to place it on the shirt.
- Glue, clip or wrap flowers around your purchased headband.
- Enjoy the utter cuteness that your kids bring about!
This was a super easy costume, that was fun to be able to make where they could all 3 match. They loved it! And we were proud that we could come up with something so easy, yet cute. It’s hard to match bigger kids with the baby sometimes, but the older girls were so excited to get to match their baby sister!
Here’s some of our crazy bloopers the day I was trying to get bloggable pictures of the costumes…..
I could never quite get everyone to look the same direction….but I couldn’t resist the baby’s face in this one! She’s adorable with that huge grin! She loves her mama!
But then, curiosity got the better of her…and she had to know what big sister was doing with those flowers on her head!
We were walking in a parade that day…and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of her sound asleep, looking like a little flower princess!
I still don’t have this year’s costumes completely planned…..but my oldest is making tutus for herself….we may have to do a tutu year for everyone. I’m sure I’ll keep you posted on Facebook.
P.S. I’m going to be switching over my email client and will no longer be sending you every single blog post in an email. You will likely get a newsletter and/or sponsored post once or twice a week. My goal is to increase the amount of value that you receive from me, while minimizing the amount of email you’re getting from me. I know for most, every single post I write doesn’t need to come to you. I will have a list of the links in each newsletter, so you won’t miss anything if you don’t want to. Thanks for your support. I really appreciate you!
