I wanted my two year old to be a very simple object that she knew of and together we decided on an apple tree. The costume itself was a very easy costume to make.
I used brown pants she already had for the trunk of the tree and purchased a green t-shirt. At a craft store I then found a bunch of fake greenery (I used only the individual leaves), a small fake bird and the Styrofoam apples (part of a fall wreath which I disassembled). It took me about an hour to hand sew the leaves, apples and bird onto the shirt.
Everyone loved this costume and thought it was very clever!
