No Tricks, Just Treats Halloween 2016

Oct. 14, 2016

Zuri’s No Tricks Just Treats Halloween event at school is happening today! And we are so excited! πŸ™‚

I mentioned before that Rupert and I made a promise of frugality for the months of October and November. That’s why, for the first time in years, Zuri is NOT buying any Halloween costume this year! Yup, we’re going DIY.

For the No Tricks Just Treats event at school, we’re reusing Zuri’s 4th birthday dress which I made myself with the help of Youtube. We’re restyling it to look like a witch costume with the help of some halloween accessories that we are getting from the pile that we have accumulated through the years. Check out Zuri’s halloween look below. πŸ™‚

I made this blue tutu dress after watching a tutorial video on Youtube. Zuri used this dress on her 4th birthday last year.

The broom and the witch hat with spider are some of the halloween accessories we have accumulated through the years. I think I bought them from Toy Kingdom years ago. The necklace and witch fingers were my in-laws’ old things which they left when they moved to Canada.

Those witch fingers are creepy but Zuri loves them. Hehe.

The spider on Zuri’s witch hat is even creepier than her witch fingers.

Also, last night, Zuri and I already prepared goodie bags for the Kinder class. Although the pre-packed halloween goodie bag by Trolli looks so cute, Zuri and I opted to go DIY. πŸ™‚

Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year and it doesn’t have to be heavy on the pocket. Reuse. Restyle. Go DIY. πŸ™‚
