It’s never too early to be thinking about your kid’s Halloween costume. You have several choices where to buy your costume—party stores have huge selections, online ordering is plentiful, thrift stores and some communities even have their own Halloween stores. However, there is nothing better than a DIY costume. Save yourself a little moola and look around the house, use a little creativity and see how rewarding it is to create and design your own fabulous DIY Halloween costume for kids.
DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids
I have found many DIY websites and can’t wait to share them with you. I love clever and creative. Your kids will surely win the school Halloween costume contest with these fantastic ideas. Just a little disclaimer: if your child wants to wear the same Frozen costume that her BFF has let her. Halloween should be filled with fun and no drama.
Meatballs and Spaghetti
I really think this is a winner. Just a few supplies you can find around the house and in minutes you are set for a dinner night out.
This one couldn’t be easier if you tried. A blow-up pool toy and white balloons make this Bubble Bath costume beyond adorable.
Raining Cats and Dogs Costume
It’s Raining Cats and Dogs. With a raincoat and umbrella and a few cuts outs or cats and dogs, we will be good to go in your Halloween costume.
But a smile on your kids face and make him his favorite sandwich, I mean sandwich costume. The best part of this costume is it’ no-sew!
This website is full of the most adorable costumes that are standouts. I love, love their interpretation of frozen, and the wind-up doll is easy and adorable.
Country Living has a gallery of costumes sure to delight. My very favorite is the Lego costume. A few boxes and paint and you have a costume that every kid will love to wear. And please check out the snail. Craft paper and masking tape pull this very easy to make look together.
Cabbage Patch Doll
Remember Cabbage Patch Dolls! You can buy the wig on Etsy and all you need is a cute baby. I am sure you can find one somewhere.
Check out my DIY boards on Pinterest. I am blown away at some of the costumes made with just a few items that are readily available around the house. Please share your DIY Halloween costumes for kids. Have a wonderful holiday, be safe, have fun and be considerate of others. BOO!
