DIY: 9 Halloween Costumes You Can Make Right At Home

October 24, 2016  |  

The best part about Halloween, besides the free candy of course, are the costumes. While it may seem easier to go to the store and pick a costume off the rack, these costumes you can make at home out of everyday items can be just and simple and a lot more fun than you think.
Even if you are not a crafty mom, a little creativity and forethought can go a long way in putting together some cute and cost effective costumes for your little ones. To get a head start on things, I typically start putting some thought into the costumes around mid September. I’ll ask the kids what they’d like to be and do a mental inventory of the things we have around the house to pull their costume of choice together. If we’re missing some key components such as a wig or certain style of dress, we’ll take a quick trip to a local thrift store and see what odds and ends we can find to bring our vision to fruition. It’s a creative exercise for the kids and you only need a few small touches to take a homemade costume from good to great. Here a 10 inexpensive costume ideas you can do on a budget right at home.
