We know this scenario well, parents. You’ve got a lot on your plate, and somehow, pulling together Halloween costumes has fallen to the bottom of the list. And with a few short days left until trick-or-treating, you’re scrambling to find something your child will love. Never fear! Check out our options for easy, DIY costumes that you can throw together quickly and affordably.
With a few supplies you can put this costume together in a cinch. All you need is a white shirt, red pants (and/or tutu), paper for your sign and most importantly (and easy to find): pom poms! Glue to shirt and headband and she will be good to go!
Once again, easy as pie! With this yellow theme, any combo will work — dress, shirt and pants or skirt/tutu! Then, either draw 2 hearts and a smile with a fabric marker, or cut out hearts and a smile using construction paper and attach to clothing. Red heart sunglasses are a fun addition but not necessary to make the outfit smile.
Superman (or is it Clark Kent?) never looked so cute. This outfit can be achieved with a Superman onesie or t-shirt, collared shirt, pants and tie. Rimmed glasses from the Dollar Store complete the look. It’s a bird, it’s a plane…
iPhone Stroller Baby
Not sure your baby or toddler will want to wear a costume all night? We love this idea from Rookie Moms, which entails decorating your stroller instead of your child! Easy instructions can be found here.
One last option, because hey, it doesn’t get much easier than this one! This “mummy’s mummy” costume comes from Eighteen25, and it’s simply requires a white onesie, medical gauze that can be sewn or glued on to onesie, and googly eyes. Boo!
