The Two Dollar Halloween Costume

Audrey was a pumpkin for her first Halloween.  I found this pair of pumpkin pajamas at a consignment shop for just $2 and then commissioned my mom to knit Audrey a pumpkin hat, which was FREE (for me, anyway!).  After dressing her in this get-up, we ventured out to the back yard for a photo shoot with a bunch of organic pumpkins that just happened to be lying artfully on the grass by some fall leaves.

Happy Halloween from the Green Baby Guide!


  1. Happy Halloween! What a cutie! I “tagged” The Green Baby Guide because you have a great site! Click on my name to find out more on The Frugal Mom Blog!

  2. Awww! So cute with the autumn foliage and veggies! Hope you all had a lovely time. 🙂

  3. Gorgeous – and I was so pleased with my $5 costume:) I can’t wait to read your frugal tips going into the holiday season.

  4. She is Adorable! I found Ethan’s costume at a thrift store too and was super happy with it. I spent a bit more then i was really wanted to but $8 is still a deal…and it was brand new on the original hanger w/ tags too!

  5. Correction! I was just informed by Octopus Knitting that Audrey’s hat is crocheted, not knitted. I hope I did not offend anyone with the mischaracterization of her headwear.
