No-sew Captain Hook- No-sew? That means easy-peasy! If you’re anything like me (frazzled, tired, overwhelmed, but happy…), then this costume from Inspired By Family Mag is for you!


Last Minute Kids’ Pirate Costume- I like the simplicity of this one by Apple Green Cottage. It’s easy to make, yet still screams “AVAST!”


Pirate Lady’s Costume- Love this costume from Sarah Forshaw! It’s perfect for all us adults out there, just totally adulting the pirate thang.


Pirate Bandanna Skirt- For anyone with little pirate granddaughters, you will love this bandanna skirt by Alpha Mom! (I wonder how I can make it in my size?…)

Spyglass Crispy Cones- I adore these cones from Party City! They’re almost too pretty to eat! Almost…


Jell-O Fish Bowls- If Jell-O had been around when pirates ruled the seas, I’m sure they would’ve eaten it all the time. Check out this pirate take on Jell-O from Theresa’s Mixed Nuts!


Gold Doubloon Oreos- These doubloons from Purple Chocolate Home make my mouth water. If I ever found a real gold doubloon, I would probably just use it to buy Oreos anyway.
