Parents have proven time and again that no amount of budget constraints can stop them from making their kids stand out, whether it’s for a school activity, Halloween, or a birthday party. So we’re always impressed when we see moms busting out their creativity for their little ones — just like Nicole Aquino, who DIY’d this adorable astronaut costume for her son Maxs’ first birthday party.
Nicole, a mom of two who works in event management, is a pretty creative mama. So when she browsed online and saw that astronaut costumes cost too much for one-time use, she decided to go through Pinterest instead to find a design she can DIY.
She saw one that was easy enough to make which required only a few materials. “Luckily, my son had plain white pants and a onesie that still fit him. It had suspenders stitched in, but that was easy enough to remove,” she shares in an interview with SmartParenting.com.ph. “[Then,] I thought of adding a personal touch by making Maxs his own logo and a NASA-inspired patch.”
