#DIY Where’s Waldo & Wanda costumes

We’ve been on the go so much lately that I’ve been taking time from road trips to do some research on how we can make our own Where’s Waldo & Wanda costumes because I refused to pay $40 per shirt at the costume stores. Super easy to make.  Start by taping stripes on the shirts, […]
