Halloween Costume

My DH and I are invited to a costume party again this year, and I am going to go as a Christmas Tree, but need some help with his costume. I'm thinking of Frosty the Snowman, but can't figure out what to dress him in. I'll have the top hat, corn cob pipe, and do something about a button nose,etc.; but need suggestions about what he should wear for clothing, as well as how to do his eyes. Or can someone come up with a better idea?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Cute! Maybe dress him in all white sweats and stuff a pillow in his belly. A tedious job would be to glue cotton balls on him! Or dress him as a star to top your tree. What cute ideas you have!

I like the way you both think. The present is a good idea. I wonder if he would think so. Hmmmmm....

Or dress him as a Teddy bear, with a big red bow around his neck.

He could be a tree-top angel. Or he could be a tree ornament. You can make him a foil hat (to look like the little metal piece that caps off the opening of the ornament) and he can have a big "hook" coming out of the top of it.

Get clear plastic bags, and tie them off in three sections around his body. Fill each section with either white balloons, cotton batting, white paper....but anything white. (I'd even toss a bit of glitter in there, as well) Leave holes for his arms and legs.

White styrofoam peanuts would work in the bags. Can scrounge clean ones from businesses...
