This year for Halloween I just wanted to wear a hooping costume so I could play around my new LED hoop all night. Kayla threw together a Little Bo Peep costume, courtesy of some last minute Savers shopping.

I had all of my clothes already, but wanted a little something extra. I have seen dread-like yarn hair accessories worn at Harvest Fest, but really knew nothing about them… until the day of the Halloween party. It turns out they are called Yarn Hair Falls. I did some research, bought some elastic, some yarn and went to town. I think they turned out pretty good for a first attempt. Plus, they kept my head warmer than a hat in the cold that night.
