Last Minute Homemade Costume Idea
Strange BUT true!
I am a Kindergarten teacher and pinch my pennies. We had a Fall Festival recently and I couldn’t believe how many children came to the festival in $40.00 costumes and I am NOT kidding! I was just shocked! Am I the ONLY one who is pinching my pennies? It makes me wonder!
I came with my homemade scarecrow costume! It cost me nothing to make as I used what was available around my house. I fringed a pair of old ripped jeans, wore mismatched socks and decorated an old garden hat with colored paper leaves and a crow made out of construction paper. I used garden gloves and an old flannel shirt, used my make-up to create a Scarecrow face and used a raffia bow that I pinned to the front of my shirt! Everyone commented on my costume saying how awesome it was but the best part was that it was FREE! I can’t even IMAGINE buying a costume!!!!!
