DIY Fun Halloween Costumes

We know everyone is on a budget these days and the last thing you want to do is spend money on a costume that your kids are only going to wear once. So we have found a couple of solutions for you!

Add Some Color!

Our first idea is perfect for multiples going to a party or trick or treating together. They could all dress up as crayons! This costume is inexpensive and easy to do!

To start with all you need are solid long sleeve shirts or sweatshirts and matching colored pants. In the how-to instructions it says to use adhesive-backed felt but you could use regular felt and use either iron on hem tape or fabric glue if adhesive-backed felt is too expensive. A few more things you need are scissors, a ruler, and party hats for the tip of the crayon. Here is the link on how to make these fun yet easy costumes: Colorful Crayon Costume

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s.. SUPER BABY!!! 

All you need is a layette or a baby bodysuit, some felt, a small piece of fabric and some Velcro™. You can make this one faster than a speeding train! Here is the link on how to make this adorable flying baby! Super Baby Costume

If you have any other ideas or if you choose to make one of these costumes, please share with us on our Facebook page! We look forward to seeing what you came up with!
