You've heard this one, right? A nun, a monk the Pope and Stonehenge walk into a bar...Click the thumbnail photo above to see the whole costume and click through to find out how the costumes were made and for the link to submit your own!

Monk

aka: Jasper (1)
location: Gridley, IL
age group: toddler
difficulty level: semi-easy

materials: brown fleece, rope and silver cross

description: Using a robe as a template, I drew a rough sketch onto paper. I cut out the pieces of fleece and sewed them together. I constructed a hood after looking at one of his hooded sweatshirts.
Thanks Kimberly!

The Pope

aka: Rose (2)
location: Jackson Heights, NY
age group: toddler
difficulty level: semi-easy

materials: Paper, white fabric, sewing machine, gold trimmings, glue.

description: I sewed a really simple, white tunic and shawl and embellished the shawl with gold trimmings. The hat was made simply of paper wrapped in fabric and more gold trimmings, with felt lining to make it soft around her head on the inside. The cross was all gold trimmings, paper and glue.
Thanks Nina!

Nun

aka: Rose (1)
location: Jackson Heights, NY
age group: toddler
difficulty level: super easy

materials: The kind of hat that has a hole for the face, in white, an adult long sleeved black t-shirt, some black cloth, a cross, needle & thread, safety pins, a small bible (optional), appropriate footwear.

description: I put her in one of my black, long sleeved t-shirts and rolled the sleeves under and safety pinned them. I tacked (with needle and thread) a square of black cloth to the top of the white winter hat, the kind of hat that goes all the way down to the neck with a hole for the face. I put a cross around her neck and that was it. She had a tiny bible too but it got lost.
Thanks Nina (again!)

Stonehenge

aka: Daria (2 months)
location: Woodbridge VA
age group: infant
difficulty level: super easy

materials: Foamy sheets, Old t-shirt, Glue

description: Cut foam sheets bought at the art store (they're soft enough for baby but hold their shape). Glued them together, covered with old grey t-shirt. Voila! One 18 inch Stonehenge, a la Spinal Tap. My baby goes to 11!
Thanks Andi!
