25 Absolutely Adorable DIY Halloween Costumes for Newborns!
Oh boy. There’s nothing I love better than some tiny, itty, bitty newborn action dressed up in costumes. I mean, it’s all just too precious. The newborn stage is a fleeting one. We all know this, and yet when we’re in it, it’s the last thing we want to hear.
Which is why, when it comes to holidays and special occasions, donning them in something over-the-top adorable erases all memory of those sleepless nights and challenges of fresh and ripe new motherhood. At least it did for me. Especially when I was able to capture those moments and adorn my walls with the visual proof. Proof that my baby was the cutest baby ever to walk the earth on their very 1st Halloween.
Sure, I’m obviously partial, as you likely are with your own. The only thing is, those handmade costumes and photo props for newborns are expensive! Why not try your hand at making something yourself? I’m presenting this roundup of DIYs to y’all with plenty of enough notice to get busy, just in time for Halloween, your 1st tour around the neighbourhood as a family and all those pictures you know you’re just aching to take.
