To bee or not to bee, that is the question . . .   For this cute costume, braid yarn to make a beehive of “hair.”    Add a few sticks, leaves, and a flower.  Make bees from craft pom-poms and attach them to wires that are anchored in beehive hairdo.  A yellow turtleneck and black leggings complete the look.

I never promised you a rose garden.  But I promise this rose garden costume will be the hit of the block!   Anchor inexpensive wired butterflies from the craft store into a pretty hairdo.  This costume is crowned by a little picket fence in her hair – so clever!

  2. Hey Kristie, I’m crazy about these darling ideas . . . especially that paper doll. I’ve never seen anything like it!

  3. Darling costumes! Do your kids make their’s or buy them ready made! We usually went the ready made route, but I remember being a ghost with a sheet and often a hobo! Oh, the good old days!
