DIY Halloween Costumes

I’d be preaching to the choir if I told you that buying costumes at the store is expensive for an outfit worn an average of one time. Not to mention that they are usually poorly constructed and mass produced so you’re likely to be a multiple at that party.

But that’s why you’re here isn’t it? You clicked on that tantalizing link for DIY Halloween Costumes because you know there’s bigger and better ways to have fun this Halloween.

You’ve seen the DIY Halloween costumes and heard the appreciation people have for the ingenuity and thriftiness (or Pinterest). You won’t be disappointed, below is a round up of ideas that is sure to meet your needs. Have fun, let the kids help and let the traditions and memories begin!

    Thanks for sharing these great ideas. A lot of our costumes were home made when I was a kid and I loved them. We already have costumes for this year but I want to make them next year.
  2. I love DIY costumes much more then store bought, this year my mom is making my son a TMNT costume. He is really excited about it.
  3. Great roundup--thanks so much for doing all the legwork. Homemade costumes are the best, in my opinion, but it's important for the person wearing the costume to feel like a million bucks and don't end up envious of the kids wearing the store-bought costumes. Involving them is key, both in the selection and in the making of it, too.
  4. These are some fabulous costumes that would be easy to make...or find the parts for at a thrift store. How very fun...I'm looking at that Riddler costume for my son.
