DIY Fun Halloween Costumes

We know everyone is on a budget these days and the last thing you want to do is spend money on a costume that your kids are only going to wear once. So we have found a couple of solutions for you!

Add Some Color!

Our first idea is perfect for multiples going to a party or trick or treating together. They could all dress up as crayons! This costume is inexpensive and easy to do!

To start with all you need are solid long sleeve shirts or sweatshirts and matching colored pants. In the how-to instructions it says to use adhesive-backed felt but you could use regular felt and use either iron on hem tape or fabric glue if adhesive-backed felt is too expensive. A few more things you need are scissors, a ruler, and party hats for the tip of the crayon. Here is the link on how to make these fun yet easy costumes: Colorful Crayon Costume

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s.. SUPER BABY!!! 

All you need is a layette or a baby bodysuit, some felt, a small piece of fabric and some Velcro™. You can make this one faster than a speeding train! Here is the link on how to make this adorable flying baby! Super Baby Costume

If you have any other ideas or if you choose to make one of these costumes, please share with us on our Facebook page! We look forward to seeing what you came up with!

Helpful Hints for Last Minute Christmas Shopping

Uh-Oh where did December go?? All of a sudden it’s a week before Christmas and you still have a lot of shopping to do? Not a problem! Here are some last minute holiday gift ideas for all of the procrastinators out there.
Online shopping is great for this time of year since the malls and stores get so crowded. However, to make sure your gifts arrive on time, check the website for their shipping details and guarantees. To make sure your gifts from Rock Bottom T-Shirts arrive on time, be sure to place your orders by Thursday, December 17th!
Last minute or not, gift cards are always a great present. Everybody from the drugstore, to the electronics store, to the coffee shop is offering gift cards these days. This gives you plenty of opportunities to look thoughtful by tailoring your gift-card purchases to certain individuals. If you’re not comfortable just handing over a card, wrap it inside a mug or put it in the arms of a small stuffed animal. Another option is an online gift certificate that gets sent out via e-mail. Many retailers offer them, and their convenience to you is unparalleled!

Ordering a magazine subscription is a great gift because it is simple, yet personal to the recipient and their interests. To give the gift, you can buy a current issue of the magazine, wrap it up so it looks fancy, and let your loved one know there are 12 more where that came from.


This gift is both creative and thoughtful, and can still be done without leaving the house! The key to the success of this one is to buy tickets to a show that is perfect for the recipient.  Print out the tickets and some information about the show, tuck them into a Christmas card, and it’s all done.

For a gift that’s both personal and easy to execute on a deadline, create “coupons” for services you can provide in the weeks to come. Some examples for coupons could be for an amazing multi-course meal, babysitting services, pet-care services, massages, web site building, car repairs… anything, get creative!
