Is your Pinterest board already filled with easy DIY Halloween costumes?
Yes, it’s that time of year again. Has it caught you unprepared?
There are three kinds of Halloween moms:
- Those who buy the lastest movie or culture themed costumes. Money is no object!
- Those who are talented with the sewing machine who can whip up wonders.
- The rest of us who don’t really sew, but we CAN cut, glue and tape.
