It’s Halloween costume time! Great for kids, moderately nightmarish for parents. All those catalogs and stores have cute costumes, sure, but the prices aren’t so darling. Yikes!

But with some household items, a little online shopping, and ingenuity, you can make this year’s Halloween costume the best yet. Here are some great ideas for easy homemade (and budget friendly) Halloween costumes that anyone can make.

The Cardboard Costume

These ideas are probably the simplest costumes in the history of homemade Halloween costumes. Be sure to check the forecast for rain. If all is clear, then collect some cardboard (boxes, toilet paper/paper towel rolls, etc.), duct tape, spray paint, Sharpie® markers, glitter, and anything else you want to add. Consider some of these cardboard options:

• Wall-E
• LEGO figure or LEGO piece
• Thomas the Train
• Mario Kart
• An Oversized iPod
• Jack in the Box
• A Regal Throne for His/Her Highness
• Juice Box, Bag of Popcorn, etc.
• An Airplane, A Dinosaur, or A Brown Knight (three classics)
• Anything else you and your child can think up!

Fairy

This idea is general enough that you can really have fun with it and get super creative. Use colorful face paint and get an inexpensive pair of fairy wings and you are set.

Little Miss Red Riding Hood

For this costume, you’ll need a red cape, a basket, as well as a cute dress and some red tights and the look will be complete.

Bride of Frankenstein

All you need is a white or black dress, some spooky white makeup, and A LOT of hair spray. Have fun washing that out in the morning.

The Baker

A chef’s apron will be perfect for this costume. Have your little baker carry around a spoon or whisk and then the look is complete!

 

These ideas are a good starting point, but really your options are 10-fold. You’ll also find lots of DIY Halloween costume ideas on Pinterest too!
