The spookiest month of the year is upon us once again and the time to select a Halloween costume is here. Not to fear! We’ve compiled a list of 9 easy homemade costumes for all members of the family!
Spider and Web Costume
A few black knee socks and some black yarn are all you need to make this adorable mommy-child costume. Stuff the black socks with newspaper or cotton to create the spider’s legs. Attach them to your baby’s all-black outfit with a glue gun or thread. Mom adds some black yarn to an all white outfit to create the web. And voila! You be catching compliments all night!
A few yards of rainbow-colored felt, a scissor and a glue gun are all you need to make this creative costume. Cut slits in the fleece to create the frayed tissue paper effect. To make the hat, make conical shapes with sturdy poster board and cover with more felt. A touch of colorful ribbon at the end add the finishing touches.
Add a little felt to a white onsie for this scrumptious baby costume. The best part are the dabs of wasabi and pickled ginger on the side. Keep a close eye on your little one, he’ll be cute enough to eat!
Make yourself a Starbucks latte with a white dress and a Starbucks sash. Top it all off with a plastic cap and straw and you have one creative cup of joe!
This illusion costume is an excellent experiment! Fill out a doctor’s coat with pillows (use a pool noodles for structure in the arms) and attach to the back of your little mad scientist. He’ll be turning heads all night!
If your little one dreams of being Michelangelo, this homemade costume is just the trick. An aluminum tray painted with greens and blacks makes a perfect shell and a colored T-shirt works perfectly as an eye mask.
Not what you were expecting, huh?! Print or draw out extra large spice labels like cinnamon, cardamom and chili powder and attach around your torso with shoulder straps made from string.
When you combine a feather boa, rubber gloves and some felt, what do you get? The cutest costume on the block!
Remember this classic board game where you play doctor? You’ll be sure to hit everyone’s funny bone with this homemade costume.
