Every year, around this time, my mom would ask me what I wanted to be. I normally picked a witch. I think I was a witch 3 or 5 times over my Halloween career. One year I was my dog. Um, yes, the family dog. One year I was Mrs. Brisby from The Secret Of Nimb, an animated film from the 90's. I can confirm now that no one knew who I was. I basically looked like a mouse with a red apron. My greatest and most hilarious costume was during my Lord of The Rings phase when I made an entire Galadriel the elf costume.
No matter what I wanted to be, my mom made it happen for me. We would go to JoAnn fabrics and pick out a pattern or she would create her own. We would spend a whole week picking out the perfect fabric and then I would help her cut and pin everything. This was before the era of mass-produced and single-use Halloween costumes and there was something so magical about being part of the creative process leading up to the big night!
This love of handmade and Halloween comes from my mom making space and time for creativity in the home and Halloween has always remained one of my favorite seasons because of it! For me, it is the perfect season to bring handmade items into the home. Make them a part of your decorating and costume traditions! And if you're me, try and keep them up all year round like Christmas lights!
Without further ado, I've hand-selected 16 products and shops from The Fuzzy Bee home collection and Etsy that I absolutely love this year. From costumes, home decor, jewelry, and more! Happy Halloween and as always, shop small when you can!
