Last year for Halloween I knew we wouldn't take the boys trick or treating so I didn't want to spend a ton on a Halloween costume used mainly for photo ops. I finally decided on buying them Bert and Ernie hats I found on Etsy.
Soooo cute, right? "Halloween" costumes and a winter hat all in one!
This year we are going to at least take the kids to a few houses and a festival or two so I decided we'd do real costumes....but I also decided that I'd make them their winter hats myself.
I found a really cute pattern for monster hats and so this winter my little monsters will truly look like little monsters.
Here are my finished products
I used this free pattern from The Boy Trifecta, with a few minor changes. Each hat is a bit smaller than the pattern (and one hat is smaller than the other to fit my very un-identical twins). I made the eye a bit smaller too. The pattern was really easy to follow and modify even for a beginner like me. I am really happy with them!
Now if only I can get the boys to wear them! :)
