This will be the first year that little Sassyfras and Juiciness will go out trick-or-treating beyond just our next door neighbors. They are so excited! Sassyfras picked out a Tinkerbell costume and Juiciness will be going as Spiderman.
Sassyfras wanted this hot pink pumpkin to hold her candy. It was $1 at Target. I found these floral stems for less than $2 at a local craft store. I'll have to admit that I always wondered who bought those oddly hot pink and purple flowers...I guess now I know.
A fairies candy bucket has to be special, don't you think? I hot glued some tulle and flowers around the top of it.
I also made her a little necklace to hold some pixie dust. I found a mini bottle with a cork at the craft store and filled it with a mix of pink sprinkles and silver glitter. The cork is glued shut, but not before placing a couple of flower petals between the cork and bottle. Then using some jewelry wire I made a loop and pressed it into the cork with a drop of glue. A few flower petals glued to the bottom finished it.
Juiciness picked a purple pumpkin for his candy haul. I hot glued a few plastic spiders on it and he loves it. Perfect for Spiderman!
The hard part will be keeping them from wearing their costumes everyday until Halloween. Oh, Little J will be going as Boba Fett and he has a special candy bag with his name on it and didn't want a new one.
