Thrifty Halloween 2009

Hello you thrifty thing readers! The first post is the hardest. So, I decided to introduce us in thrifty Halloween form. My daughter is dressed as, you guessed it, Waldo. I managed to whip up her costume by hitting Goodwill, and the craft store. It all came together well, don't you think? Ever try painting the face of a nine month old? I would not recommend it, very challenging. I'm surprised the glasses are even close to circular! Last minute, I decided the dogs needed costumes too, of course, so I decided on a tomato for my white fluffy sweetheart. I used one of my daughters red shirts, bunched up the stem with a rubber band and covered it in green pipe cleaners. For my little chihuahua, I could not resist making her a vampire. I used the leftover felt from making my daughters hat, a spider ring I had laying around, and a black shoelace. It was all very quick, simple, creative, and of course...thrifty.

Hope everyone keeps checking in, because I have so many wonderful ideas, and I can't wait to share them with you!
