It’s officially October, so you know what that means, Parents. Time to start helping your child decide what they want to dress up as for Halloween. While this is an exciting time of the year, it can also be expensive — some of those store-bought Halloween costumes can cost an arm and a leg!

But not to worry! There are plenty of unique, easy DIY Halloween costumes that you can make for your child at a fraction of the cost that they are sure to love!

Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

A Garden Fairy

All you need for this sprightly costume is tulle, a few fake flowers, a bit of ribbon, some wings and a flower crown. Craft a classic tutu that is long enough for your child to wear as a dress, and hot glue or sew some ribbon to create straps at the top of it. Use garlands of fake flowers to fashion a crown, strap on the wings, and let your little fairy float their way through treat-or-treating.

A Superhero

This is one of the easiest costumes you can make! Grab a paper eye mask and a cape, and you have yourself a superhero! You can also use fabric paint to write your child’s first initial on a plain t-shirt so they’re really their own hero.

A Chimney Sweep

Dress up your child in black slacks, a white shirt, suspenders, and a newsboy cap and create a chimney broom using a lightweight PVC pipe and extra long pipe cleaners. Add a red bow tie and use a bit of makeup to add some “soot” to your little one’s face, and they’ll be ready to start singing “Chim Chim Cher-ree!”

A Hot Air Balloon

Help your child look ready to travel the skies with only a few household items. Take a round, lightweight laundry basket and cut a hole in the bottom so your child can stick his or her legs through. Use some string or ribbon to create straps to keep the basket up, and tie a large balloon to the basket. It’s as simple as that!
