Mommy and me sun rainbow costume

Rainbow costumeWildbird has done it again and launched yet another line of the most lovely slings in the most lovely colors for this season! If you haven’t experiences a Wildbird sling yet you truly need to jump on board it was a game changer. Wildbird made time with Boo (Jasper) easy and productive (remember our collection?!). So we figured all you slinging’, and soon to be slinging, parents out there could use an easy and clever Halloween costume that not only looks amazing but accommodates your tiny human like this rainbow and sun mommy and me costume. Let’s be honest, I’d wear the jumpsuit every day of the year! And if I could, that adorable baby too!

DIY Rainbow Pumpkin Arch

In another life, I think I should have been an architect. Or at least just an arch-themed one. You may have noticed by now that I have a bit of a thing for balloon themed arches. Lest we forget the flamingo balloon arch, the Rainbow arch, the heart arch…I think you get it, I love a good arch!

Of course, the problem with creating is that as soon as you finish one, you just want to do another, and I’ve had a hankering to make a new one as of late. As it turns out, our friends at Michaels were craving something colorful as well, so we teamed up to bring you what might just be one of my favorite arches yet. Behold, the Rainbow Pumpkin arch!

DIY Palm Leaves

This month we have had our eyes on dried plants and flowers. There’s nothing more elegant. And as the days start getting just a little bit colder, we’ll take whatever we can get that reminds us of summer days. We’ve LOVED the dried plant trend and decided to to try it out with paper because when do suddenly come across a dried frond? Dried plants are already permanent, we get it, but we loved them too much to not give it a shot. Here’s our version of the lovely Palm Fan Leaves, jazzed up with a little bit of color, because could something really be Lars if it wasn’t at least one of the shades of the rainbow?

Statue of Liberty and her NYC Tourist Halloween mommy and Me Costume

Here at Lars we live for a little holiday (well, not so little to us) called Halloween! If you don’t already know, I basically spend every day, spring, summer, winter, and fall thinking of what I should dress up as. I’m not even ashamed; to me, Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year! With this deep love comes a deep responsibility to dress up not just myself, but Jasper as well. I’ve got to make good use of the golden years, and by golden years, I mean a time when Jasper doesn’t get a say in what he would like to go as. 

As I thought about the many things that a mother could force her son to dress up as, I realized I could finally realize one of my greatest dreams. In my humble opinion, there is no better outfit for a mother and a mother’s boy than Lady Liberty and her loyal tourist. After deciding on a theme, we partnered up with Cricut to bring you the magnificent Statue of Liberty with the tiniest (and possibly the cutest) tourist you’ve ever seen. The most important aspects of the costumes consist of paper and Everyday Iron-On vinyl. The other pieces you can find in your closet or sew up for a quick liberty dress! To make this even easier, we provided a template you need to cut the elements out! Seriously, so easy.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
