Here are some samples of costumes I made when my children were little. They were so much fun to make. I handed them down to my nieces to wear and I did not receive them back, therefore I can not pass them down. Thank goodness for scanners so I have my pictures saved to digital format. The pumpkin in the first picture with the pumpkin doll is my daughter. Her baby had to have a costume too!

Michael's and spray painted the pumpkin red. I hot glue gunned the nose on and painted some black on it to give it some character. I then took a pipe cleaner I use on my sewing machine for lint. I bent it in half and twisted around a pencil. I then cut a small hole in the back side and stuck it in and hot glued it to stay. The rest of the pumpkin I painted horns and teeth, front legs and hooves, then black shadow stripes kinda like hog hair. The pumpkin is now in my daughters apartment at the University of Arkansas. Lookin' Good! They can display it all year round. Thanks for looking! Woooo Pig Sooie :o) JodieT

I got this idea browsing an advertisement in a magazine in the grocery store. Last week I was at Michaels and purchased a couple of pumpkins and thought I would try this out. Our three grandchildren will be here for Halloween weekend so I thought I better get started decorating. I haven't decorated much since my girls were much younger. They are now 23 and the other will be 20 in December. My Step-children are 35 and 33. They are the ones with the little ones.
