Bucket of Popcorn Costume…with HUGE popped kernels

Remember how I always host a little Virtual Halloween Parade every year, posting many of the costumes you (or someone you know) made for Halloween??  Well, we can’t skip that…’s TRADITION!  (Here are the costume parades from 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009.)  On the 31st, I plan on sharing your Handmade Halloween costumes here on my blog, that you and/or your kiddos are wearing this year.  And no, they don’t have to be made by you…….maybe a friend/neighbor/grandma/etc. helped you out.  Go on, share it!  Anything handmade needs a little extra love.  So, I’ll be sharing them here! :)


SO……upload your images to the YOU Made It and LOVE It Flickr account.  Then, I will grab them from that account and will share them here on Halloween, which is this coming Friday, in case your kids haven’t reminded you!  (The deadline to get the pictures uploaded to flickr is October 30th.  So, you may need to take a quick snapshot the day before, if you haven’t already.  Deal??  Also, by sharing them in the flickr group, you are agreeing to allow me to post them here on my blog as well.  Deal again?)


SO excited to see what you all have made!!!!!!!!

Okay, I mentioned yesterday, I had a few more things to share.  Well, I made one more little costume because……I just had to!  (And there’s still time……..2 WHOLE DAYS until Halloween! Ha!) This Popcorn Bucket idea is something I have seen in pictures online but never a picture tutorial for it.  I just had to try it, to see if it would really work.  And it did!  And a good friend of mine has a 7-year-old who wasn’t super opinionated about his costume this year…..and was totally up for dressing up as a big bucket of movie theater popcorn!  YES!!! 


Michael, you’re the coolest! :)
