Happy Halloween!

It's Halloween!
Are you or your kids dressing up today?
I'll be a pirate tonight -- a TADA! costume I've
assembled with blah items from my closet.
I came across these creative costumes
made by recycling things at home:

A hot air balloon made of an old box
and paper bags

A Lego piece made from a big empty box
and small round boxes

A fish bowl made from plastic bags & paper

A gumball machine made from a plastic
bag and cardboard

A snow globe made from a plastic bag,
card board and cotton balls/fiber fill

These TADA! ideas are all from

I wish you a SPOOK-tacular day!


  1. Happy Halloween Claire!

    Your costumes are TADA indeed and so funny. Heidi Klum could learn a thing or two with you and your spirit of things.

    Take Care and Have LOTS of Fun!
