DIY Mr. Potato Head Costume

This post was originally posted as part of The Train to Crazy's Handmade Dress-Up DIY series.  Andrea had oodles of fun costume ideas at her place, so check them out!

Normally I like to be a little secretive about our family's Halloween costumes.  Halloween Night becomes the big reveal!  But this year, I'm letting you in on a little secret.  You get the first glimpses of what we are planning to wear for Halloween 2011.  And guess what?  If you've been around for a little while, you'll probably recognize these costumes!  That's right:  This overworked, underpaid Mommy is recycling costumes from Little Man's birthday party for Halloween.   But Little Man couldn't be happier. :)

In our house, it's never a matter of what movie.  It's which number:  Toy Story 1, 2, or 3.  We live and breathe Toy Story!  So naturally, this year we are all dressing up as Toy Story characters.

When Little Man turned two, I threw him a Toy Story birthday party.  You might remember he dressed up like Buzz Lightyear, and we asked all of our guests to dress up like Toy Story characters too!

Our guests were great sports!   To join in on the fun, Mr. Oopsey Daisy and I dressed up like Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

I sewed our costumes in 1 afternoon, and they were a piece of a cake!

Are you ready to learn how to make your own?

If you're still wondering what to be this Halloween, I promise you can whip up this costume in no time at all!
