D-I-Y – Do it Yourself!
I cannot believe it’s almost October!! Although the year flew by, I’m actually quite excited that it’s the holidays. This is my favorite time of year and I sometimes wish the joy and traditions of these next few months could be here all year long. 😉
One of my favorite kids’ favorite holidays is Halloween. They love all the pumpkin goodies, pumpkin carving and dressing up that comes in the month of October. I can’t blame them because I love all of those things too. Most of my kids have already known for months what they would be for Halloween, but we still have a few undecided ones.
For some help and inspiration in the costume hunt, we thought we’d round up some of our favorite DIY ideas from Blog Land. There were so many great ideas, I had to make sure we shared all of our favorites. I hope there are some that provide some inspiration for y’all this Halloween season. Be sure to leave a comment telling us which one is your favorite.
