Hi, February. I’m posting about Halloween because I don’t want these photos to get lost in the shuffle. They will be buried by the time October comes back around. Besides, babies in cactus costumes are always cute, right?
Sadler was born in Arizona, so I wanted his first Halloween costume to reflect the desert. It also had to be comfortable for an infant.

Begin by cutting 4″ pieces of yarn and lots of them. You’ll need about 50. Tie each piece into a knot.
Affix the yarn knots at random all over the footed pajamas with the glue gun. Just a dab on the knot is all you need.
To make the flowers, follow these instructions. I used the glue gun instead of fabric tac. Also, I glued the finished flowers to the footed pajamas, but you could pin them to make them removable. The flowers make adorable brooches.
That’s all there is to it. Quick and cute!
When Christmas came around, I turned the costume into a cactus with lights (that’s how they decorate in AZ) for an ugly sweater party. Just cut out felt pieces for the lights, and string together with yarn. I did it with the hot glue gun too.
Please share your infant cactus costume with me on Instagram if you make one – even if it’s on Halloween eight months from now.
