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!

We all have a million dollar business idea (or 2...or 3…) that we think *someone* should do. Why not you? Part of the motivation for Brit + Co's new interactive business course Selfmade is to help women develop their business idea into an actual living/breathing/thriving business. But it's also a way to figure out what that idea is. Maybe you have a few ideas, or need to refine a really good one, or maybe you have something with potential but just need to brush up on the business side of things. Well you're in luck. Thanks to Office Depot, we're here to share a quick recap on how we're helping our students figure out how to pick an idea and run with it. Feeling a little Selfmade fomo?
