Last Minute Halloween Costumes

By in Fall

You know the dilemma: The kids are invited to a Halloween party, and parents are asked to stay. The only hang-up? Costumes are required for everyone! Here are some last minute Halloween costumes I’m toying with to make sure VIP access is granted!

2. A few years ago I went as the classic children’s book character, The Paper Bag Princess. It was so easy to make, and my kids got a kick out of it. Recyclable too! This was my inspiration photo.
