Thanks to Michelle for todays Halloween tip, ( these are so darn cute)
I wanted to share with you a homemade halloween costume I did for my twins last year, This is very thrifty to make I spent a total of less the $5 for both costumes, I attached a pc for you and here are the deatils of how to make it and I hope you and your readers enjoy this. They were a huge hit last year. My twins Emylee and Shaylee were a BUNCH OF GRAPES
I made the purple grapes so I started off with purple shirts and black leggings.
I bought a large bag of purple balloons at the party store, a box of safety pins, and some green felt .
First you must blow up all the balloons, make sure they are different sizes. After all balloons are blown up this is where your crafty skills need to come in.
You will need to attach the safety pins to the balloons tie, be careful not to puncture the balloon.
Start at the top of the shirt collar, and in a upside down rainbow motion start to pin them to the shirt. My kids were small so the top layer was 6 balloons the second layer 5, 3rd layer 4, 2nd layer 3, then 2 then 1.
Green felt to make the stem and leaf, cut out a large leaf to attach to the middle of bunch of grapes.I then cut a a small circle and attached to their heads with bobby pins, and your done , you will have a great bunch of grapes!
