Homemade Christmas Present Under the Tree Costume

Homemade Christmas Present Under the Tree Costume

My daughter, Sierra, does not do gory, gross or scary. In fact, she won't even stay in the same room if someone is talking about blood, guts or gore. Halloween is obviously not her favorite holiday since it involves all of the above. This year she decided to skip the Halloween horrors and move on to Christmas instead. She wanted a Homemade Christmas Present Under the Tree Costume. Easy enough!

I found the perfect shaped box at a yard sale (free) and taped the top and cut holes for the head and arms. I wrapped it with the '75% off, end of the season' wrapping paper I bought last year, and used some extra wide ribbon that I purchased at my local thrift store. I made the 'from Santa' tag using paper I already had in my scrapbooking box and used an old Christmas gift bag as her candy bag. I had to dig through all my stored away Christmas totes to find the singing Christmas tree hat that sings "Rockin around the Christmas Tree" when you push a button on it. My daughter didn't realize until after she was fully 'wrapped' up that she couldn't reach the singing button, so, I had to walk along with her and push it as we went to each house. Christmas is definitely coming earlier and earlier each year.

The great thing about this super, inexpensive, costume is that she can wear it at Christmas parties and we can recycle it after the holidays!

Coolest Christmas Elf Costume 2

Found under the tree Xmas morning. Not! This Christmas Elf costume took me weeks to fabricate. I used curtain material for the body, satin for the cuffs and trim , felt for the ears. (add some bells and whala!)

I was due to go out for a Christmas eve drink with my girlfriends I finished the costume just in time. I showed up fashionably late and walked into the pub with my little 6 month old elf. "Priceless" The waitresses grabbed him, carted him around the restaurant and I had a great dinner for once with a infant.

Last year our boys decided that they wanted to be a marionette and a Christmas stocking. It is our tradition to allow them to choose what they want to be and we will try to make it.

The Homemade Christmas Stocking Costume:

Cut out material so that child can fit in in the shape of a stocking. Create presents from cardboard and wrap them. Stuff stuffing inside the stocking to give it shape. Insert presents into stocking so they wont fall out.

That's it.

I got a box and cut a few holes in it. Also got a couple shoes boxes and cut a hole in the top, which made present shoes. Printed out a label and wrapped it, and put some bows on, and voila. I was even nominated to win best costume! Cost in total about $10 to make.

Just a quick question. How'd you make the shoes stay in place! I'm going to be a Christmas tree for Halloween this year and was just trying to think of ways to make shoes like that!
