All week I have been putting together accessories for my nephew's Halloween costumes. My part this year was the decorating of treat bags and a hat for Isaac's friendly ghost costume. I am not overly crafty, but I can manage a glue gun and some acrylic paint. What I now know I can't handle is glitter! Even glitter that is well planned out is a mess, as one friend on my Facebook page mentioned: It is the herpes of crafts!
In the making of Isaac's hat I had glitter everywhere. In fact with the overcast weather, and the glitter all over my body I resembled a character off the Twilight movies! I put the finishing touches on the hat this morning, an hour before we were ready to march in the Halloween parade. I think it ended up looking great, and the best part is that he actually wore the hat! (There is nothing more frustrating than putting a lot of time and effort into a costume only to have the toddler not wear it.....)
We had a great time although it was freezing cold, and Cooper got second place in the 2 year old boy costume contest for his Sheriff costume!
