I LOVE Halloween! This year we got crafty and made our our own costumes.
My daughter was Edward Scissorhands. We bought a black shirt at a thrift store and covered it with belts and black duct tape. For her hands we cut out cardboard scissor shapes and glued aluminum foil to them. Then we duct taped the scissors onto gloves. It was actually a pretty easy costume to throw together!
I dressed up as a raven. My costume was a bit more complicated! I sewed each feather from recycled T-shirts.
