DIY Gnome Costume
Everyone has seen the Disney movie Gnomio & Juliet and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t smile opening up their door on Halloween night to see a little gnome saying “trick-or-treat”! This easy costume idea will keep your kiddo all bundled up and doesn’t involve an expensive trip to Target. All it takes is a long, single-color sweater from home, some construction paper, a belt, a pair of boots, and a makeshift beard. With some creativity, and a little bit of crafting, you will have a little gnome running around the yard in no time!
Bonus points if you’re willing to test out your crocheting skills.
