The recycling truck is made out of foam board. I assembled it with hot glue and duct tape (inside for reinforcement). I used Modge Podge to cover it with green tissue paper. The recycling trucks where we live are actually blue, but I already had green paper. Elliot helped tear and apply the paper to the truck.

Beatrice's costume is basically a silver lamé rectangle lined with black fleece. It attaches to the baby carrier with fleece ties in the top corners. The most difficult thing about her costume was appliqueing on the recycling symbol and making the lid/hat, and only because the lamé is pretty delicate.
Can you tell I love Halloween? I wish I had time to decorate the whole house. Unfortunately, creating these costumes consumed most of my free time to decorate. It will all be worth it though when we go trick-or-treating. Have any of you created Halloween costumes for your kids? Share them on the Facebook page and help inspire others.
