DIY Halloween Costumes with Tracey!

Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought I'd share some cute Halloween costume ideas!

Halloween is in just 9 days… can you believe it? If it snuck up on you like it did with me, you'll need to throw a costume together fast! That's why this costume idea, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, consists of stuff that I have around the house already!

Start with the iconic blue gingham dress! If you don't have one, any blue dress should do as long as you get the rest of the outfit down!

For shoes, you MUST go with red glitter. I have these red glitter Toms, but if you don't have them, you can do DIY glitter shoes!

You'll need a pair of red shoes, some tacky glue or hodge podge, a sponge brush, LOTS of red glitter, and a big bowl and spoon. First, fill the bowl with the glitter. Then brush the glue all over the shoe (don't worry, it'll dry clear!). Next, hold the shoe over the bowl of glitter and spoon the glitter onto the shoe (all of the excess should fall back into the bowl). The glitter should stick to the glue. You'll have glitter shoes in no time!

Next, braid your hair into two pig tails and tie with blue ribbon. Then all you need is your picnic basket with your favorite stuffed animal to play Toto, and you're good to go!

Let me know what you think of the costume in the comments below, and don't be afraid to ask me any questions!
