The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

20131015_201720

It’s almost Halloween, one of my favourite times of the year. I love the autumn, I love crisp fall days with multi-coloured leaves and a nip in the air. I love all things pumpkin, even the colour, and I especially love all the crafting opportunities!

First there’s the pumpkin carving. I mean, what’s not to like about sculpturing squash into something spooky? Of course it’s messy, and sticky, and it’s a fair amount of work, but the end result is worth it, amirite?

Then there are the costumes!! If you sew, then they can be as elaborate as you want to make them, like this princess dress I made for my daughter, or the Jack Skellington tux and tie I made for my son:

Or you can cheat a little and buy something that you can adapt easily. I did this one year and used sweatshirts. I turned them into a dragon and a purple minion costume. Comfy and easy!

And for the wee folk, a simple hat will often suffice….

And then obviously you can cheat a lot and just buy a costume and tell everyone you made it….

Aren’t they cute?

And let’s not forget to include the whole family….
