Since I hate spending too much money on costumes (last year's shark costume was bought from the Pottery Barn Kids clearance sale on November 1st, the month before Everett was born), I collected a few things we already had around the house for this year's Halloween. The white hat he's wearing is actually the newborn hat they gave him at the hospital. So when I discovered this - paired with the yellow shirt and orange pants we already owned - made the perfect candy corn costume, I went with it!
The candy corn costume is for lounging around at parties. The real costume is his favorite object: The Remote.
To make this, I simply painted a box with black craft paint and added the construction paper buttons. So easy!
And I didn't spend a dime!
I can't wait to take him out trick-or-treating!
