It’s Halloween time in the ModernJune house and that mean costumes! Every year we go through the same thing…the kids change their minds on what they want to be about 100 times before we finally pick something at the store last min. I end up spending way too much on a costume no one is really happy with. This year I set out to change that. I wanted to make the Halloween costumes myself this year.  I am pleased to say that I actually accomplished this! The kids love their costumes and we are pretty happy with them too.

I decided to go with something that would be wearable long after Halloween and warm for the weather. Solution: Hoodie costumes. I saw these on Martha last year and loved them but I just didn’t have the guts to try them. – YET

So first up…

Little Red Riding Hood – Total Cost 26 bucks

I got the hoodie from Target and the lace frill from the Walmart and the basket from Michaels. She already had the shorts and I got the shirt off clearance and made the skirt from a 4th of July dress off the clearance rack too. A few quick stitches and it was done. Now as I said I followed the Martha Stewart tutorial but I altered it to be more versatile.

Next up…The Big Bad Wolf – Total Cost 9.88

This one was really fun and super easy. I got the hoodie from Target and the felt from the Walmart. I followed the Martha Stewart Tutorial again changing a few things to get the look I wanted. I added fluff inside the ears and sewed everything on instead of fabric glue.

Last but not least my little Dinosaur…I am calling him a cutie-a-saur…Total Cost 10.32

Hoodie from Target, felt from Walmart. This one was the most time-consuming but I love it so much I might make another for David. I found a tutorial on Pinterest and loosely followed it. I changed the shape of the spikes and added eyes claws and teeth.

That’s it! Now my kiddos will be super cute and super cozy trick or treating! I had a lot of fun with these I hoped you enjoyed them too!

I started decorating outside this week for Halloween. First up – a haunted tree. This project is so simple and so cheap you just have to do it!

Supplies: Branch – 0.00

Netting – 1.00 – dollar store

Crows – 3.00 – dollar store

Black spray Paint – 0.00

Pot – 0.00

Hot Glue – 0.00

Now I had some supplies already from past project so if you have to buy them it will be around 12 bucks depending on what you buy.

I spray painted the branch from my yard, then hot glued the crows onto different branches. then I stuck the branch into the pot and covered the dirt with netting.

That’s it! Took all of 15 mins to do and I love how it came out. I have a few other projects to come for the porch and then outside will be finished. Last night I spent my evening covering my vintage books on the mantel with brown paper and writing spooky titles on them.

Next up bats on the wall of the house……

Gettin Spooky in here!

Halloween is in full effect over here in the ModernJune house! I have been putting little things here and there and hope to have it all done in the next two weeks. This will be the first year in um I think 3 years since we don’t have something gong on preventing me from going all out.

I went to the flea market in town today and picked up this little guy for 8bucks! He is super spooky and will look great on my mantel!

Have you started decorating? What do you do for Halloween?
