The leaves are falling, the air is cooler, everyone is talking about pumpkin spice lattes – fall is here! And that means Halloween is here, too! And I’ve rounded up 20 awesome DIY Halloween costumes for women and kids to help get your creative juices flowing!
Now that I’m a mom, Halloween has become even more fun – I get excited thinking about all of the adorable costumes my little guy is going to be wearing over the years. Last year I was lucky enough to get a great deal on an adorable Buzz Lightyear costume for my little man but I know that Halloween costumes can get pretty spendy! Just recently, I looked at Halloween costumes in a store and they were around $50-$60 a piece. If you’ve got multiple kids you almost have to take out a second mortgage to buy costumes – no thanks.
A great alternative is to make your own DIY Halloween costumes. DIY Halloween costumes can range from the simple to the extravagant with plenty of adorable and clever costumes that won’t break the bank. Making your own DIY Halloween costume is also fun, and gives you a chance to flex your creative muscles. If you’re stuck for ideas, I’ve rounded up 20+ awesome DIY Halloween Costumes for women and kids!
What I love about a lot of these DIY costumes is that they can easily be adapted for adults or kids! You could even have matching DIY Halloween costumes – so cute!
