DIY Kids Costume Idea | Milk & Cookie

October 11, 2017

Halloween is only weeks away so I wanted to bring you guys a fun and cute idea for siblings. For the last three years I have dressed up my kids in matching costumes. Each year I pick a theme and come up with something cute to dress them up in. Last year they were pikachu and ash, the following year they were curious george and the man in the yellow hat, and the first year they were sully and mike from Monsters Inc. We don't normally go trick or treating but I like for them to at least dress up. Besides my oldest Giovanni already said he wants to pick his costume next year. I might be able to sneak in at least one more costume next year we'll see. For now let's talk about this adorable milk carton and chocolate chip cookie. 

Let me start off with what I didn't make but I'm sure is very simple to make. The cookie costume I actually bought last year after halloween when everything was 90% off. I paid $1.00 for this cookie at target. Which by the way they have again this year and regular price is $15! I think the price of the costumes is absolutely ridiculous being that you are literally only using it for one night. If you wanted to make this cookie all you would need is cardboard, felt, and some stuffing (which you can always use crumbled newspaper.

Talking about the felt I bought one yard for $3 at Joann's with a 50% off coupon. That yard was enough to cover the whole milk box and add straps. So you can see that if you have the time to make your kids costume its very affordable compared to buying it from the store. 

For the milk I used: 
-Large Box (free at any store just ask)
-2 Black 9x12 Felt Sheets
-1 Blue felt sheet (optional)
-Glue gun & sticks (which I already had)

The costume came out to a total of under $5 you really can't beat that. 

This weekend I have another costume idea but this time I will be dressing up with the kids. It's going to be a good one I promise. Make sure you sign up to receive an email when I post so you don't miss out (At the bottom of each post). Now tell me what are your kids dressing up as this year? I'd love to know. Tell me in the comments below. If you decide to try one out please tag me on Instagram I would love to see it and repost it on my stories.
