It’s October time- we all know what that means! Pumpkin Spice Lattes, turtlenecks, pumpkins, hot chocolate, and Halloween costumes!
If you’re a mom-to-be and you have a bit of a bump (as I’m sure most of you do!) here are some adorable DIY Halloween ideas to dress you and your future bundle of joy!
- Where’s Waldo.
For mom- red and white striped t-shirt, black glasses, blue jeans (or leggings if it is more comfortable), white felt and red felt for making the hat, red pom-pom (or a white and red ski cap with a pom-pom)
For belly-Red and white felt scraps, white card stock, black marker, hot glue gun, safety pin, tape
- Cut out the white card stock paper into a glasses shape and outline the glasses and draw eyes with black marker.
- Paste them onto the striped t shirt where your bump will be and make a white and red ski hat with a pom-pom and paste it right above the glasses. The little waldo should be on top of your belly.
- Wait for shirt to dry and put on with black jeans, black glasses, and your Where’s Waldo hat.
Voila! you found Waldo!
- 2. Bump in the Road.
For Mom/ belly- black long sleeve t shirt, black jeans, white scotch tape, yellow scotch tape, toy car, hot glue gun.
- Make two parallel lines with white scotch tape on your black shirt over where your belly will be.
- In the middle of the two white lines use your yellow tape and make five short lines going across your belly area.
- Then hot glue gun the toy card in the middle of the ‘road’.
You’re wearing a bump!
