We planned our little scheme for A’s school Trunk or Treat. Luckily our combined craft stash is pretty stocked, so all we bought were red tablecloths & duct tape (to make the pixelated lava flow) and balloons for the Creepers, Endermen, and Pigs (just add tape & a little paint marker).
Erin (who took all these cute pics) made the kids’ hats using Crafty Gemini’s Fleece Hat pattern (with “pixel” appliques) and shirts (painters tape and a little fabric paint). She even put pixels on Steve’s pants and shoes, which I kind of want to do to my everyday clothes.
I crocheted over wire to make the pig tail.
Craft Husband made the chest (our treat box) and diamond/emerald pick axe (there was some debate among the trick-or-treaters), which was the hit of the night.
What kid doesn’t want a handmade weapon?
I made the adult “costumes” (at this point in my life, I don’t want a costume more complicated than a sign). Erin was TNT & I was a health heart. Just a little posterboard, paint marker, electrical tape and yarn scraps.
Do you see a resemblance between my costume and something else that makes a constant appearance on this blog? I can say this is the first time I’ve ever dressed up as a crochet project (but probably not the last).
We had HUNDREDS of happy kiddos come to our car, and we loved hearing their excitement and seeing their cute costumes. There was a prize for the best car, but we didn’t win. Please excuse me while I lie in my bed all day, mourn our loss, and eat all the leftover butterfingers.
Happy Halloween! I hope you have a safe and sugary night!
