Tree and Tree Hugger Halloween Costume by Deanne Iovan
Deanne Lovan stands 6'1" tall, so she decided to dress up as a tree for Halloween - and her husband followed suit by dressing up as a tree-hugger! This two-part costume is a great option for couples, and it's made from recycled materials found around the house (and the backyard).
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Create a "tree trunk" by sewing a large piece of burlap so that it drapes like a robe. Make fingerless gloves by cutting an old pair of brown socks.
Collect branches and leaves outside and use a hot glue gun to attach them to the burlap. Attach additional branches and leaves to an old hat (Deanne used a cowboy hat).
Sew stuffed animals like squirrels and owls and plastic bugs and birds to the tree trunk.
Wear a pair of brown or green high-heel or platform shoes.
