It’s officially October and Halloween is less than a month away! EEEK! I have no costume yet, nor a solid idea of what I want to be… but I know I’m going to DIY it. I just love homemade costumes. Not only can you be whatever you want to be on Halloween, you can personalize it to fit yourself when you make it. The store bought ones tend to be kind of lame or kind of trashy and definitely kind of pricey – what’s that about?
Like I said, I don’t know what I’m going to go with this year, but I can’t wait to share the DIY with y’all once I figure it out! I figured I would put together a list of some simple homemade costume ideas that are cute (not sexy, ugh) and original so you guys can get started. Have you decided what you’re going to be yet?
There’s a hilarious trend that has exploded on the internet these days. If you have an adorable animal living with you who eats, sleeps, and gets into trouble, you better put that cutie up on Instagram! People have full accounts devoted to their pets… and I’ve decided I’m on board with it.
If I had a bunny, y’all would know it. It would be all over my Instagram, hopping its way into your hearts. Sniffing flowers, chomping on carrots, and cuddling up on the couch. Since I don’t, I resorted to adopting some sweet little guys that you MUST check out. It’s the perfect fix for a girl who wishes she had a furry friend, without all of the responsibility.
These five accounts are all pretty different, so hopefully you can find one to adopt!
It’s ok, I giggled at the name too. I have a thing for Netherland Dwarfs and Cooper reminds me so much of my old little bunny, Buttercup! There are pictures going up all day, so you can always check in on his whereabouts.
So I stumbled upon this DIY just yesterday and could not believe how adorable it was. Pins + Pin Cushions = Cacti looking object… how has no one put them together before? Well, they hadn’t, and thank goodness A Beautiful Mess made it happen.
By just using some small pots and felt, you can make the least threatening cacti plants you’ve ever seen. Truly, I already own a pin cushion for sewing that I love, but I would make these planters just for decoration. They remind me of something I would find in Chinatown with my friends with little googly eyes and a cheery grin that has no purpose other than to be cute. So I think this project could go either way: decorative or useful.
Try this one out this weekend and let me know how it goes! Thanks again to A Beautiful Mess for the inspiring post.
Y’all, why has no one reprimanded me!? There has only been exactly 1 bunny post this year, and the name of this blog is Bunny Baubles… So many baubles and so few bunnies. I’ve been seriously slacking on giving you the greatest happiness fluffy bundles of joy can bring! Continue reading “A Bit of Bunny Blasphemy”→
