Leprechaun Beard

Every year since I had my first daughter I can’t seem to help myself when it comes to dressing up my kids.  Every holiday I make them where fun, cute, or silly things and take lots of pictures then using Photoshop I stick the picture on fun backgrounds.  St. Patty’s Day has be the funnest holiday every year.  There are so many fun things they can wear that I have had a ball over the years.

This year I decided to make part of our costume our selves (after all we now have a craft blog so it only fits right?)  It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do, but yesterday while at the craft store it just came to me Leprechaun beards.  And to be honest this is the cheapest costume we have ever had.  The hats I got in a package at the dollar store and the felt for the beard was only twenty five cents.  So for both kids I spent $1.25  um I think I like this DIY costume thing.

Since I  have two girls this year I needed two costumes so I actually included two beards in the template one larger and one smaller one.  So hopefully one is the right size for your kids.

    Aww, how fun! I never think to dress up the kids, but I usually dress the house up somehow, even if it’s just a simple bunting in pink or green or whatever. I’ll have to make a beard for my son, he’ll get a huge kick out of it!

    I noticed your site’s ranking in google’s search results is very low.

    You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need high Page Rank backlinks to rank in top 10.
    I know – buying them is too expensive. It’s better to own them.
    I know how to do that, simply google it:

    May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that genuinely understands what they’re talking about online.
    You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. A lot more people need to read this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
