kid costumes : the sandlot

the sandlot halloween costume

It’s COSTUME time! We wanted to go with a little theme of movies we loved while growing up and how to get an at-home super easy costume out of it. We have three sets of costumes to share, and we’ll be posting the throughout the rest of the week! First up, The Sandlot! We’ll spare you the incessant quoting, but we will warn you if you haven’t seen this coming of age baseball flick, you’re missing out.

DIY Destroyed Jeans

By Emily. My journey through distressing my own jeans is long and treacherous. If you can, imagine a pre-teen Emily hunched over a treadmill. Her hands inside two pant legs holding the knee areas down on the treadmill belt at 10 MPH speed. Hands on fire from friction, but determined to get that all-natural distressed look. Long story short is I’ve tried everything. And this is what works, so for those of you who’ve inquired, here’s what you’re gonna do!  1. Grab a pair of denim (either yours or your kiddos!) that has minimal stretch. Jeggings are not going to work for this. … Read more
