Little Bearded Gnome and Mushroom

A truly enchanted ensemble. This roaming garden gnome is sporting an all blue outfit with high-top sneakers (boots will also work). The vest and beard are made from a paper grocery bag and cotton balls (get the how-tos). For this mushroom's conceptual disguise, dress your little girl all in white and let a rainy day accessory make a colorful splash. All you need is an old umbrella and a hot glue gun to attach the pipe cleaners (get the how-tos). Mom joins the fun by dressing in her Saturday afternoon gardening attire.
