This Bob Ross Family Halloween Costume Will Bring You All the Joy
Halloween is so close we can taste the candy corn. If it happens to be your first year rocking a family costume — do we have a good one for you! We've seen lots of clever takes on the one and only Bob Ross so we decided to give it our own Brit + Co twist with both the Happy Tree *and* bb squirrel. Scroll through to learn how to DIY this iconic costume trio just in time for all of the spooky festivities ahead.
To achieve this simple and legendary look, wear jeans, a belt, and a light blue button-up. Add a curly brown wig ($9) and keep a paint palette ($13) and a paintbrush ($6) close. Apply acrylic paint to the palette and the brush tip.
Next, we added gingko leaves ($20) to the face to complete that autumn tree lewk.
Finally, to top (or bottom) off this costume we added *real* moss ($11) around the ankles with hot glue. Be sure to wait until you're actually ready to wear the costume to complete this last step as the living moss has a short-ish costume life.
In celebration of this baby's first ever Halloween, we found Pottery Barn Kids Baby Squirrel Costume ($69). It's ridiculously soft and snuggly, just like her.
“There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.”
And there you have it, folks: Bob Ross, a Happy Tree, and a fuzzy little squirrel!
