I figure they might hate it when they’re older but the photo ops are just too great to pass up! This DIY baby lamb Halloween costume, inspired by the iconic Serta Counting Sheep, is brought to you by Serta, the same people who sponsored this post. Cause sheeps got style.

The Serta Perfect Sleeper might not solve all of the world’s problems but as any good sheep can tell you, they do help solve five of the most common sleep problems.

  1. Tossing and turning can be reduced with the Comfort Right® Layers in the innerspring or Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam in the foam offerings.
  2. Lack of support is relieved with Serta’s Custom Support® System.  Each innerspring mattress has durable yet flexible carbon steel coils working to promote proper support and alignment across the entire body. Serta Perfect Sleeper Memory Foam features Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support for proper support for a good night’s sleep.
  3. Sleeping too hot is helped with the Cool Balance® Technology in both the innerspring and foam offerings.
  4. Partner disturbance is alleviated with the TrueSense® Design. This system helps minimize the impact of partner movements in both the innerspring and foam offerings
  5. Mattress roll-off or sagging is prevented with the Comfort Last® Construction in the Perfect Sleeper innerspring mattress. Each model is designed to enhance the durability of the mattress and is thoroughly tested beyond industry standards to make sure it can resist sagging and edge roll-off.

Boy's Halloween Costume Ideas



  • white t-shirt
  • fabric glue
  • white hat/beanie
  • cotton balls
  • felt
  • marker
  • scissors
  • cardboard

How To

1. Insert cardboard into shirt (into the torso and sleeves).
2. Start by applying glue around the collar of the shirt.  Press cotton balls onto the glue.  Work your way down the shirt, on the front and the back until the shirt is covered with cotton balls. Allow to dry.
3. Fold felt in half and draw an ear; cut out.
4. Fold the hat to where the stitches are in front; glue felt ears onto hat.  Let dry completely before applying cotton balls to the top.
5. Once dry, apply the glue to the top of the hat and add cotton balls around the top quarter of the hat.  Let dry completely.

Note: The shirt was a little stiff from the glue, I’d suggest loosening the shirt a tad before putting it on.
