Homemade Jack O' Lantern Baby Costume

When Halloween came around for our 6 month old baby it dawned on us how much fun we could have using his name--Jack--as inspiration for ideas. For that first one we decided on a Jack O' Lantern. But having a touch of Irish in him, we wanted to mix things up. Instead of an orange pumpkin with face we opted for a green Coleman Lantern.

To make the Jack O' Lantern Baby Costume we re-purposed the classic pea in a pod costume for infants and toddlers, attaching the Coleman logo cut from a sleeping bag stuff sack. Followed that with a felt contraption to look like the propane dial on our camping lantern. With some foam from the fabric store and more felt to match the pea-pod costume we fashioned a head-piece including pipe cleaner handle and actual lantern mantles stuffed with cotton balls.

Homemade Jack-O-Lantern Costumes

My two girls wanted matching costumes this time so I decided that since I hadn't purchased pumpkins this year I'd make them Jack-O-Lanterns.

This was really easy to set up. I took two over sized orange t-shirts and stuffed them with plastic garbage bags. I then dressed them in green and put these orange stuffed shirts on them. I then took their hair and pony-tailed it on the top of their heads with green scrunchies (stems).

Lastly, I took water based acrylic fabric paint and designed their faces. These homemade Jack-O-Lantern costumes are really easy for those who are short on time or out of ideas. Hope you enjoy and comments are welcome!!!
