Every year I get grandiose ideas about making DIY Halloween costumes. It never seems to happen though because everything I find is just too hard! I don’t own a sewing machine and even if I did, I wouldn’t have the first clue how to use it.
This year, I have actually found a few costumes that everyone can make. Yes, everyone! I can’t hand-sew an Elsa dress but I sure as heck and make a rain cloud! Check these out.
