Halloween Costume - Button


Lately I've been thinking about halloween and the costume ideas started moving around in my head. I want to think of something unique and exciting but also something that isn't uncomfortable for Natalie. I remember when my mom was little she would always make our costumes. My favorite of all time was when she dressed my twin brothers as a pack of doublemint gum. She got a big box and painted in to look like the gum and made aluminum foil hats for them. I can't find any pictures but they looked adorable. Of course I'm sure they weren't quite comfortable having to walk around together in a big box but they did win best costume that year at the school halloween fair. I created a costume for Natalie a couple years ago and it is still my favorite. I took green floral wreaths, fabric, yarn, cardboard and safety pins to create her Button. I think she looked "Cute as a Button". Now to start thinking of ideas for this year. Hopefully something will pop in my head when I'm trying to sleep, that's when I usually get my ideas.

That button costume is just adorable. What a clever idea.

I was actually talking about Halloween costumes with my husband last night. It's always good to start planning early.

Hello! My daughter who is five, decided this past week she wants to be a green button for halloween! Googled "button costume" and found your cute costume. Would you be able to send me a bit more detail on how you put it together? I would email you privately, but can't find an email for you. Thanks
Shelley
