Two birds with one stone…


As my naked tree awaits to be nicely decorated, I’m gathering ideas for some last minute gifts for the little ones. We are a family of thrifters so second hand is never an issue.

I have decided to make a dress up case with costumes for both my niece and nephew.  Great way to shoot two birds with one stone. Costumes are usually the least expensive during this time of year, especially at thrift stores. (NOTE: if your planning on doing this next year department stores usually sell their costumes close to nothing the day after Halloween.)

Things needed:
-Old suitcase
-Costumes of all sorts. ie, full costumes, masks, hair accessories, scarves, fancy dresses, bandanas, hats, belts and anything else you can think of.
-Various Materials to decorate the outside of the suitcase.

Just a little overview and now I’m off to the thrift store to find treasure. I will post what I found and the finishing product.

Have a beautiful day!
