If you missed it, be sure to check out our Goldilocks and the 3 Bears costumes from last week!

Today over on Instagram, I have teamed up with a few other awesome mamas to bring you a bunch of new + fun DIY Halloween costume ideas.  Head over there and check out the hashtag #mamashomemadehalloween on Instagram to see them all!

I went for something a little abstract with this one. It’s one of my favorite kid’s songs, “If All of the Raindrops” [were lemon drops and gumdrops, oh what a rain it would be!]. The song came to me because I had just recently ordered my daughter this darling little tutu playsuit from one of my fave small shops Wrare Doll. I believe the color was called lemon. To me, she just looks like a little lemon drop! Which got the song stuck in my head. And then I thought, well this could be a fun costume!

Here’s what I used to create these costumes:

  1. plain white undershirts.
  2. craft pom poms.
  3. stiff craft felt.
  4. polyfill stuffing.
  5. plain headband.
  6. rainboots.
  7. tutu.
  8. hot glue gun.
  9. clear umbrella.

So my daughter’s costume was pretty much done already. To make her headband, I just used the plain headband and the craft pom poms and hot glued them on.

Diego is my little gumdrop! I got him some plain white undershirts and used the same pom poms and just hot glued them all over his shirt. Make sure if you do this, you put a piece of cardboard or something in between the shirt when you are gluing. The hot glue can go through the fabric and make it stick together if you don’t.

Then I also glued on the a small cut piece of stiff red felt for the bottom of this gumball machine. I do realize that gumballs and gumdrops are different, but I thought this costume was a little more fun and made more sense when you see it!

I then added another small piece of grey felt, as well as the glitter number 5c I had leftover from another project.

For Adriano as our rain cloud, I used the poly fill stuffing and some of the white felt. I actually didn’t have enough of one color of white, so I hot glued these two together to make one big cloud shape. Then, I pulled the stuffing out of the bag in clumps, and hot glued it onto the felt. I then used safety pins to pin it onto his white shirt.
