Saige’s Halloween Ladybug Costume

This year we have had a great time getting ready for Halloween with our dolls.  This costume was really fun to make and it looks absolutely gorgeous on Saige.  She is a beautiful ladybug.

We cut up one of daddy’s black socks to make the top, adding ribbon and buttons.

To make the skirt bottom, we tied tulle to the band we cut off of the sock from the middle section and then hot glued on black buttons.

To make her antennas we just used pom poms and pipe cleaners attached to another band we cut from the sock.  Here she is modeling out in the yard today.

If you are wondering what we did with the other sock, we made it into a black cat costume.  You can find out how we did it on my blog today.

Happy Halloween to You and Your Dolls,

    Love the lady bug costume. She looks so cute in that. Would be a bit chilly trick or treating in that costume in the northern states, but perfect for a party.
