Last Minute Halloween Costumes
Halloween is one of those holidays that seems to be AGES away until it isn’t. Don’t worry, there is still time to get costumes ready!
As I see it last minute planners have two choices:
- Run out to the store for some picked over and seriously overpriced plastic get-ups or
- Grab the glue gun and make your own.
I’m going with the second option because homemade Halloween costumes are adorable, fun to make, and don’t create lots of extra trash. (Honestly, I’m down with any excuse to use my glue gun!)
