I looked really hard to find a Halloween costume for 2010. I wanted to be a cupcake but didn't have the time to make it. And the store was sold out of the costume. So I saw some "flower" costumes online and came with this idea for a Homemade Flower Costume basically from the top of my head.
I bought a headband from Walmart. The green tutu is a childrens tutu from Walmart. Dark Brown tights from walmart. I'm wearing yellow shorts (I already had) under the tutu.
The yellow petals I bought from Michael's (foam board) and I hand drew one petal and used that as a stencil to make the other petals. I used chenille stems to cover up the glue and headband, you could use pom poms which would probably look better and bumble bee stickers on the petals to add some character! Wear with flats.
My 5 month old baby Madison is so cute I just had to make her a flower costume. I started by taking pink flannel fabric and made a hood. Then I took foam sheets and cut out petals so the petals would be stiff. Then I sewed the flower petals out of fabric to cover the petals and brushed them with purple paint for an accent.
I attached the petals by sewing them in place and put tie strings on the hood to hold it on her head. I used green fabric for the stem and sewed her a little potato sack style sleeper. I bought fake flowers and pulled off the leaves and glues some around the neck line. I used liquid stitch that stuff is great!
Sat her next to some pumpkins and there you have it a cute little flower baby. It only cost me $25.
My little 6 month old daughter, Evelyn Rose, was the coolest Sunflower Baby for Halloween.
This Homemade Sunflower Baby Costume idea originated from a green sleep sack that my baby girl was outgrowing and which I saw as a possible flower stem bearer. I had seen some flower costumes and I didn't like the commercialized look, so I decided to make my own.
I bought some yellow and green felt, yellow pipe cleaners, yellow ribbon and a hot glue gun. I didn't really use a pattern; I just drew freehand the flower petals, stem, and leaves, cut them out and pieced them together. The head band wouldn't stand straight, so I hot-glued it to a plain white cotton beanie hat to keep it on her head. Underneath the sleep sack, she's wearing green pajamas. Her smile and charisma make the costume!

Homemade Daisy Chain Group Halloween Costume
My friends and I wanted to dress up as something that involved body paint. So we decided to dress up as a Homemade Daisy Chain Group Halloween Costume!
We made the green dresses out of material, wore brown tights and covered our shoes in furry green material for the grass. We then covered our upper bodies with green body paint and painted our faces yellow.
For the petals we used stiff white card, tied around our heads with elastic. We carried little yellow watering cans all night and even drank from them! We stuck together to emphasize the "chain" part!
Very fun, easy, cheap costume. The more daisies the better. A guaranteed prize winner!

My daughter's name is Soleil, which is French for sun, so I decided to make her a Baby Sunflower costume for Halloween.
I started by making a brown stretchy tank top and sewing sequins onto it to resemble sunflower seeds. Next, I made satin petals and leaves and sewed them onto the tank top to create a sunflower dress. I made her a bonnet and sewed more yellow petals onto it. I had plans to paint her face, but she wouldn't let me. I think it still turned out really cute.
