One of my absolute favorite parts of Halloween is helping my kids think of fun ideas for DIY Halloween costumes and putting them together. That could mean anything from purchasing a couple of items from a thrift store to making it completely from scratch.
While it requires some effort on my part than ordering a costume, it’s usually more cost-effective. It’s also always a bit more exciting to see it all come together than just grabbing one off the shelf of a store. But the best part of a do-it-yourself costume is that it’s also guaranteed to be totally unique.
I’m not the craftiest person in the world, but I’ve had some success with putting together some super cute costumes for my kids, either way. Of course, there have also been some epic fails, as well.
Here are a few DIY costume ideas that I’m made for my kids over the years… and one for me!
Hey, if I can do it, so can you.
