This Halloween DS was a farmer.  I got the idea from Pinterest (original credit here) and was so thrilled to be able to make something for him!


Money-saver?  Nah.  Just cute and way less toxic (hopefully) than other alternatives.


  • Seventh Generation* Diaper Box (Yay recycling)
  • Brads (could be toxic, small lead concern but figured he wouldn’t be touching them)
  • Crayola* Washable Tempera Paint (Crayola claims to be nontoxic…however the smell of the paint was a tad overload)
  • Black Acrylic Paint (conforms to ASTM D-4236)
  • Sharpie for letters (I know, VOC-emitting, but necessary for time-saving purposes)
  • Green Duck Tape*
  • Hat & Boots gifted from a trip to Montana from the grandparents
  • Clothes…already had…score!

Not sure how I am going to top this next year.  363 days to figure it out…

(*I was in no way compensated for these plugs.)
