Upcycled Halloween Costume:

I am always one for leaving things until the last minute. When my daughter tried her old Halloween costumes on Saturday morning they did not fit.

Eek!! Don’t worry I said, we will think of something.

‘Rushes around and panics’ Thinking cap on!!

I went into the garage and find out all the old costumes she had collected over the years. Then I thought of an idea. ” Lets up-cycled the old ones and make one dress that fits you”

She looked a little puzzled but let me work my magic on them!!

The End Result: Nice and long too/ Even long enough to wear next year!!

So what do you think of this upcycled Halloween costume?

I cut the arms off on costume to make arm warmers too. My daughter admitted after, I thought you were going to make a complete mess of it!! “She said” You did great, it is the best I have ever had because it is all my Halloween costumes in one. Pictured below 5 years ago when she first had one of the dresses:

    Quite Brilliant, I think I like the new version better than the original, though it is lovely to have it as a point of comparison. A great use of something you would have had to pass on or throw away. Thank you for hosting Creative Mondays and for joining me for Trash2Treasure
