I submitted photos of myself (mother), my husband, my mom and our 16-month old quintuplets, yes 5!
As we all know, Halloween costumes are expensive especially if we are looking to buy for 5 babies, so I researched and googled whats the best costume for family that is homemade. I was never creative nor made Halloween costumes in the past, but I guess if you have the imagination and determination to do something, you can make it.
This will be the first trick or treat for them so I decided to make myself, my husband and my mom the same costume; I made all of our costumes by myself for 4 nights. I measured each one of us, cut the felt, glued it, waited to dry up, cleaned the dried glue, cut out the black felt, cut out the word Crayola 8 times, oh and all of the things I did are times 8 (that’s the hardest).
I thought buying 5 costumes for the babies plus three adults are too much and its not as fun as having a homemade and spending less than $5 each/costume!
So, felt in different colors, black felt, glue gun, glue sticks and some imagination and boom! We got our homemade costumes this year!
