Charlie the Garden Gnome

( Ummm yeah! Quite the poser huh!)

Yup! Got myself a Garden Gnome and boy is she cute!

I made Charlie Halloween costume this year and would you believe it that this is the first Halloween costume EVER! I realized this year that I’d never made a real costume, other then a tutu. It’s about time!

This entire outfit cost $5 to make.  Blue felt on sale $2.50 a yard, 4 sheets of felt for 35 cents each! 1.5 hours later….Garden Gnome!

If you ask her what she is she says ” Homeless Girl!” If I saw a homeless girl that was dressed like a Garden Gnome down town I’d give her a dollar for sure!

Anyone else make their kids costumes? What are your kids dressing up as this Halloween?

    Wow, all that cuteness and from felt. So much better than the Garden Gnome for sale at Target for $20. My daughter made my grandson Rowan and his best friend Garden Gnome outfits. The little brother will be a Toad Stool. Cannot wait to see the photos of the threesome.

    How adorable is she! I can’t believe you made this, it looks awesome! This year I decided to make my sons costume too. He’s going to be a pirate and his wagon is his pirate ship. Isn’t Halloween fun :)

    Felt? I made a LOT of costumes over the years- oh wait! I did use felt way back in the day on an adorable clown costume! I forgot!
    Your little garden gnome is adorable! I’m ready for the ONE trick or treater I usually get. :)

    She is beatiful, love her photos and her custom is great, made of felt, is a great idea, so the skirt don’t fall down

    My son watched PeeWee’s Big Adventure on TV a few months back and was determined to be Pee Wee Herman for Halloween. I thought it would be easy, but I couldn’t find a small gray suit for less than $50. I was forced to make it and I am proud of the final product. Only adults seem to know who he is though.

    I’ve made quite a few costumes for my 4 over the years, and this year is a combo of making/putting together. This year it is a bat, a punk rock star, a witch, and Athena the Greek goddess. As per usual, they are not quite done and Halloween is tomorrow, but by the time we go trick-or-treating everyone will be ready!

    The garden gnome is adorable by the way!

    Awww, she is adorable! Great costume. I made every costume for my three children over the years, now the youngest just turned 18 on Hallowe’en and I guess I have to wait for grandchildren.

    So cute! It is too funny because my daughter {CHARLEE} ;-)) was a garden gnome last year! I wasn’t skilled enough to make her costume though…
