Frosty the Snowman Outfit

Who doesn't love the song Frosty the Snowman.  We are big fans of Frosty around here, so my ornament party I had last weekend was snowman themed, I thought it would be really fun to make a Snowman Outfit to wear.  I wanted to do this for Kaylee and was so excited to keep it a secret from her until the party.  The look on her face was priceless when she came in the room and saw me dressed as a snowman. :)  Here is a picture of me and her.
For the costume, it was really simple and pretty inexpensive.  To make the hat, I went to Party City and purchased a $1 plastic top hat.  I then cut a small piece of a leaf and holly berries from a decorative piece that I purchased at Hobby Lobby and hot glued it to the hat.
I then went to Walmart and bought a plain white sweater for $5.  I then purchased some large buttons from Hobby Lobby for $2.50 each and hot glued them to the center of the shirt.
For the nose, my hubby helped me out with this.  We took a scrap piece of orange cardstock and rolled it up into a cone shape and taped it in place.  We then added elastic to the cone so it could fit over your nose.
To finish the outfit off, I had the rest of the items already on hand.  I added some white gloves, white lounge pants a red scarf and some black boots.  My hubby says that I am not a snowman, I am a snow"mam", lol.
