Prego Spaghetti Sauce:

We love a good pun.  This costume is both simple and totally clever.  It’s guaranteed to get a few laughs and lets you reuse a red dress for a good cause.  Bonus points, you can even carry around your own snack in the form of pizza crust, so no worries about gluten free, yuck-is-that-cauliflower-crust, or waiting in a buffet line! Get the tutorial here.

Deviled Egg: 

The egg on its own is already pretty adorable, with its baby bump yolk, but with the simple edition of some devil horns, it becomes both hilarious and totally precious all at once.  This costume is sure to delight everyone at your next Halloween soiree. You could even stick with upcycling a white shirt for the ever so delicious egg white fry-up for those "Heavy on the Protein" Mamas-to-Be Check out the tutorial here.

Gum Ball Machine:

This is one of those that is so darn clever and simple that it leaves you thinking “Now, why didn’t I think of that?”  It’s both unique, easy to create, and gives you a reason to pick up a red maxi skirt with a soft stretchy waist which will definitely be your go-to in that Fourth Trimester!.  Get the tutorial here.

Soccer Ball:  

This one is actually done with some simple body paints.  Draw a simple soccer ball on your bump for a minimalist Halloween costume.  Not a soccer fan?  Experiment with the colors to create a basketball, globe, etc.  There’s no limit to your creativity!  Get the non-toxic body paints here.
