This idea is so darn cute!

all 024Here is a┬ácostume that I made for my son. It was totally free! (I had everything you see laying around my house and garage!) It was super easy to make too! I used a box and threw a plastic table cloth over it. I used cardboard from another box to make the top pillars and attached cardboard to the top for the “sign”. I just used a belt to secure it onto his waist. I dressed him up in his Sunday clothes and I taped a plastic cup for all the money that he would make! It was the HIT of the community party! He actually made like $15! It made enough money for all of us to eat and for him to play a bunch of games! Super thrifty if you ask me! You could also do a lemonade stand, cookie stand, dj booth…Use your imagination! SOOOO easy and SOOOO cheap! Happy Halloween! Kristy L.
