A few more DIY Costumes for you...

My three youngest girls and I had a day of fun playing dress-up. 
They were trying to decide who to be for All Saints Day this year. 
It was a tough decision!! 
We had a few fun costume ideas that I thought I'd share with you.

St Dymphna
(Helper of those with mental illness)
She's wearing a royal-ish dress (She was a princess), 
a crown and veil, and she's holding a sword and a book.

St Dorothy
(Patron of gardeners)
Our little St. Dorothy is wearing a simple dress with a shear pocket. 
The pocket is full of roses and apples. You could just put the roses and apples in a basket, if it's easier.
She is also wearing a rose and ivy wreath on her head, secured with hair clips.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Our Lady Of Mount Carmel is wearing a dark brown robe, a light brown clock, 
and a white veil and crown.
She's holding baby Jesus and a scapular

St Lucy
(Patron for eye sight)
St. Lucy is wearing a white dress, with a red sash. On her head is a evergreen wreath with red roses and candles. A red ribbon was used to tie the wreath to her head and under her chin.
(In honor of St' Lucy's day)
