{Halloween DIY}

Usually on halloween, we dress up, hand out candy at our house for a little while, then walk through our neighborhood to visit with friends. This year, we did just that! Only, I had no idea what to do this year for a halloween costume. My body is so oddly shaped now, everything just looks silly! So i have had a difficult time.

My sister asked for my help with painting her shirt, so of course i helped out, I am always down for a DIY project! I was working on my sister's costume, & it donned on me. I have plenty of left over paint, & I have old t-shirts.. & its only 1pm on halloween... what could i make that would be an appropriate halloween costume for a pregnant lady? I had seen this tshirt before online:
It looked simple enough, i decided to attempt to make my own version! 

{DIY Pregnant halloween costume}
FInd an old black tshirt that you dont mind painting. Using chalk, draw out a rough sketch of your rib cage & baby :) 
Using puffy paint, outline your chalk drawing. Let dry for about 1 hour.
after 1 hour, using your puffy paint and a paint brush, fill in your outline.
From there, add your own personal touches! I cut out a heart for me & for baby out of red felt & attatched a bow to babies head.
Looks cute huh?? 
My husband dressed up as a "Hipster". I think he pulled it off pretty well!!

Well, hope you all had a great halloween!
Happy tuesday :)
