Homemade Halloween

Jim made these for the girls this week. 

He built them out of old moving boxes, and reinforced them with a wooden frame made from scraps from old projects.  He went out and picked the pink, and sparkly red paint himself at Home Depot (American Girl box in-hand for guidance), and like the rockstar father that he is, spent two nights this week assembling them in the garage.  He built straps (like a backwards backpack) out of old blinds, and they work great-  We're off to a school party in a few minutes...I love that we went the homemade, quirky, imperfectly-charming route with costumes this year...and the girls LOVE it!

These are so cute!! One technical question... how did they hold their bags/get their candy?
