I love being crafty, and my kids love to play pretend, so a homemade costume is just an extension of our personalities.
HOMEMADE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES
Dukes and Duchesses created a cute gumball machine costume for their daughter using items from the dollar store.
A DIY Pterodactyl Costume was created by one of my new favorite blogs, Dinosaurs and Octopuses. She has lots of activities!
Shannon of Milk and Cuddles had fun with her daughter. She created a Chinese Take-out Costume. Adorable!
- Transform a purple shirt into a bunch of grapes costume using some balloons.
- Tip Junkie featured a fun circus performer costume — complete with a balloon barbell, balloon “muscles” and a fake mustache.
- Another simple costume is this Yoda outfit by It’s Overflowing. She includes instructions so you can make your own “ears” hat.
