I have been meaning to get this post up for a few days now but it’s just been plain busy around these parts. I finished my daughter’s Wicked Witch costume early last week and she was so excited to wear it to our church’s annual Trunk-or-Treat Saturday night. Are you ready to see how it turned out?!
Simple but so cute!! I was really excited when L told me she wanted to be a witch for Halloween…I was a witch when I was her age too! I wanted to make sure she was comfortable and my budget was about $20 for this year’s costume. I actually stayed under my budget and spent about $12 total.
Let me break it down so you know how I pieced this semi-handmade and very affordable costume together.
- Witch Hat: $2 from Target + embellished by by (see details HERE)
- Wicked Shirt: $5 t-shirt from Target and embellished with iron on glitter vinyl (letters cut with my Silhouette)
- Black tutu skirt: already owned
- Black & white striped leggings: $5 from Target
- Black boots: Hand-me-downs from friends
- Trick-or-Treat Bag: All supplies had on hand (see details HERE)
Here’s a close up of L’s witch shirt…I really love how it turned out!
And of course the BOOtique Witch Hat, which received many compliments and made my girl smile proudly.
And just for fun, we had to make some WICKED faces because after all, L wanted to be the WICKED WITCH of the WEST for Halloween…with a little bling and flair of coures *wink*.
She told me “Whoa mom! I look like a REAL witch in that one!” LOL! Oh man this kid cracks me up.
I couldn’t believe she was the only witch and our church’s Trunk-or-Treat! Some of her friends even had cute handmade costumes too (Jack from the Neverland Pirates and a beautiful mermaid and a super cute fox). We had so much fun- there was a chili cook off, fun carnival style games (also handmade), and then of course Trunk-or-Treating. Personally, I love it better than door to door Trick-or-Treating…but we do both ;)
So what do you think? Totally do-able, right?!
