Decorating your Doona & Liki for Halloween
We’re just about ready to stroll into Halloween! That means it’s time to get your little ones fitted with the sweetest or spookiest disguise possible. Whether you have a perfectly planned costume and want to take it to the next level, or you’re without an idea at the last minute, don’t panic, we’ve got you covered!
At Doona, we strive to simplify and add joy to parenting for modern families. In the spirit of Halloween, we’ve curated a list of our favorite DIY costumes for kids that will help you decorate your stroller. So, grab your Doona and Liki, and let’s get started on the spooky fun!
We’ve got just the thing for your little love bug! For a bumble bee-inspired stroller Halloween costume, turn your cutie into a little beekeeper by putting our Insect Net over the Doona and attaching little paper or plush bees. You can switch this costume up with any insects you like! Keep it cute with butterflies, ladybugs, or fireflies with the addition of battery-powered fairy lights! If you’ve got a Flaming Red canopy for your Doona, add black spots and some antennas for a ladybug. Or if you have a Nitro Black, add some yellow stripes and little wings on the side to make the entire stroller into a bumble bee.
If your little one is a fan of the zoo, you can create a costume inspired by their favorite animal! To make them look like a cowboy or cowgirl riding a horse, you can add a cardboard cutout or plush pony. Alternatively, you can turn your Doona or Liki stroller into a zebra by decorating the black or midnight canopy with white stripes or transform the Blush Pink canopy into a pig by adding ears, nose, and a curly tail. If they’re into dinosaurs, you can take one of the green canopies and attach a dino tail at the back and a big head at the front. For even more fun, you can even add arms and legs!
Under the sea
For kids that can’t get enough of aquariums and sea creatures, you can turn them into one. Decorate the Rain Cover of your Doona with paper or stickers of fish to make it look like a fish tank. You can also decorate your Greyhound canopy like an oyster and dress your baby in white like a pearl for a sweet sea creature look. Top off the look by wrapping them in a light pink or beige blanket. These Halloween costume ideas for babies are perfect for chilly weather or if there is rain on the forecast, so your little one can stay cuddly and warm all evening long!
Sweet treats and peas in a pod
Transform your little one into a cute peanut this Halloween. You can achieve this look by wrapping your Doona in a brown waffle patterned blanket and dressing up your baby to match. If you own a green Doona or Liki, you can create an adorable “pea in a pod” costume by dressing your baby in a green beanie and onesie. This costume not only keeps your child snug but also provides a perfect photo opportunity for you both.
If you want your child's costume to look a little spooky this Halloween, we've got some ideas for you. You can attach the brush end of a small broom to the back of your Doona or Liki stroller and hang a cauldron off the handlebars to create a witchy look. If you want to make it even scarier, you can put skeleton hands on the handlebars of your Liki stroller and decorate the rest with black gauze to give it a ghoulish appearance. For a more modern twist, you can turn the Liki stroller into a motorcycle by adding little skulls to the front to look like headlights, and don't forget to add our Liki Flames Sticker Set to make it even spookier!
Enchanted garden on wheels
If you want to keep your little one looking fresh as a daisy this Halloween, try out turning their Doona or Liki into a garden. Add real or paper flowers on the handlebars and all around the canopy! Or, go creepy with it by using dried or all black flowers.
Web of cuteness
If you're looking for an easy DIY Halloween costume idea, here's one. Take your Nitro Black or Midnight collection Doona or Liki and cover it with fake spider webs. To give it a spooky look, make paper spiders or use plastic ones and place them in the web-like material. This will transform your little one's appearance into a creepy, crawly creature.
Our Doona Car Seat & Stroller transforms from a car seat to a stroller with the click of a button. So when you’re out and about trick-or-treating or heading out to a family-friendly Halloween party, you can go from riding in the car to strolling on the streets with ease. For your toddler, the Liki Trike is the perfect solution to keep them close by and keep you in control. And since The Liki Trike is the most compact folding toddler trike on the market, it’s a snap to fold it up and store it when the sugar crash hits. Plus, it has four modes of use that enable it to grow alongside your toddler.
With Halloween just around the corner, we hope these sweet and spooky ideas take some of the pressure off as you look to complete the most epic and eerie DIY Halloween costume for your little one.
