3. Where the Wild Things Are

I adore this costume! 'Where the Wild Things Are' has always been one of my favorite children's books and this costume nails it with very little work. Find out how here.

This little deer is so cute! You can probably pull this costume together with things you have around the house and some sticks for the antlers.

Oh my gosh! What a perfect costume for a baby! Just use a beige swaddle blanket an hat, stick in some play food, finish with tinfoil on the bottom, and you're done!

6. Up (Carl Fredricksen

It looks like the only thing  you would need to make on this adorable costume is the walker! Just dress your little one in brown pants, a grey cardigan, then add a bow tie. Then just grab a few balloons and pop the lenses out of some old sunglasses and you're good to go!

7. Crazy Cat Lady

This is hilarious! Sew some cat stuffies all over a bath robe, throw on some slippers and vintage looking glasses and add some rollers (you could probably use toilet paper rolls for the hair). 

8. Gumball Machine

So cute! It looks like this one was made by hot gluing craft pom poms to a hooded shirt and then using some craft felt to add the 25ยข to the front of a red shirt. 

9. Starbucks Frappuccino

I love this one! You can probably make it by gluing or stapling a piece of bristol board into a tube, adding some felt and printing the starbucks logo to glue to the front. Add shoulder straps to the top using ribbon and staples. Then add something fluffy to the top of the cup (even tulle or fiberfill). Add some of the fluffy stuff to a headband then top it off with a paper towel tube painted green!

10. Bag of Jellybeans

This one is so easy! Just get a clear bag, cut some holes for the legs and arms, fill with small balloons and tie at the shoulders. You can print out the Jelly Bean logo to tape to the front!

11. Snail

12. Little Old Ladies

I've seen this one floating around for a while, but it is sooo cute! You could make this by hot gluing some craft pompoms (or even cotton balls) to a baby hat, popping out the lenses on some glasses and just dressing your baby in a floral dress and cardigan!
