Pile of Leaves Costumes
I like to create unique costumes for my children that cost very little to make. This usually means looking around the house for supplies I already have on hand. When I found hundreds of artificial fabric leaves, I asked myself the question: What can I make from these? My son already had a dark green jogging suit. i hot-glued the leaves onto the suit thus creating a "pile of leaves." He also had an old pair of slippers which I also glued leaves on as well as a winter cap and mask. We found some plastic insects in the toy box and added them for detail. To complete the outfit, my son carried a rake. This was a fun costume and also a big hit!
