This is our Four Seasons Group Costume: I was winter, husband was fall, in-laws were spring and summer.

Winter – white top and skirt I already had, cut-out snowflakes from paper, stickers and any other lightweight Xmas decorations that I could pin onto my clothes. The head piece was a stuffed tree decoration we already had. I used a green towel to fashion a turban of sorts and then tied the tree to it. Took a bit of balance, but the result was worth it.

Spring – green clothes already had, pinned on lots of plastic flowers as well as a few made from paper, made a flower wreath for the head and then wired a few butterflies sticking out from the wreath. She also carried a stuffed bunny in a basket, not seen in pic.

Fall – brown pants, orange shirt, wrapped a leaf garland decoration around him (taken off our front porch), bought a fake Styrofoam pumpkin at Michael’s and cut out the bottom for a hat, added a few leaf stickers and mini pumpkins here and there.

Summer – Hawaiian shirt, shorts, sandals, zinc on the nose, sand bucket on the head, a bit of fisherman’s net and seashells, sand toys, shovels draped on him. Oh – and under the bucket was a mini-music player… playing… Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, of course!

Most everything we already had around the house – we spent maybe $30 at Michael’s for the net and seashells, some plastic flowers, stickers, snowflakes, pumpkin. Won the best group prize at the party!

Homemade Four Seasons Group Costume

My husband and I along with my brother and sister-in-law went as the Four Seasons Group Costume. We basically bought everything at Kmart and Joann’s.

For Spring: I bought the sweatsuit and really cheap hat that I glued a baby bird’s nest (from Joann’s) on the top of. I also hot glued a bird to the top of the nest and also placed a drained egg shell in the nest as well. I then hot glued flowers to my top and leaves to my bottoms.

For Fall: I hot glued real leaves all over my husband’s suit along with fall décor. I would suggest using fake leaves for this, as the real ones crumbled and fell off during the party.

For Winter: My sister-in-law and I used cotton for snowy bundles hot glued on her suit and icicles around her neck. We hot glued a cardinal to her shoulder and made a really pretty head wreath as well. She also wore blue lip gloss and blue fingernail polish with glitter on her face.

For Summer: We think my brother looked more like a tourist than anything else, but it was hard to think of things associated with the season itself. He wore summer apparel while we covered him in self tanner and a sunscreened nose. We painted a sun on his shirt and shells around the neckline.

Everyone loved this idea and we won Best Overall at the party!

Total cost for all four costumes: $80.00
