Easy DIY Halloween Costumes

We are deep in the midst of serious Halloween costume negotiations at our house. After several years of sort of dressing up with the kids, last year we went all in with a family of vampires. I'm talking full makeup, wigs, etc. It was insanely awesome. And now the kids are obsessed with family costume ideas, none of which are going to be the likes of these below. I'm guessing that some day, instead of insisting we have a family costume, our kids are going to refuse to let us dress up with them. So I'm going to take advantage of this phase. But, if you're in the market for a more sane costume, I love each and every one of these DIYs. Anyone else have a costume in the works?


1. Love this French Baker costume, which works for either a girl or a boy. Plus, they'll have their snack at the ready.

2. Duct Tape Skeleton! Comfy! And you could use reflective tape for trick or treating, too.

3. This Hipster Kiddo would fit right in in our neighborhood.

4. My loves would be right at home in this Instagram costume. I'd skip the sewing and just paint on the cardboard.

5. Let them take their show on the road and dress as the Artist they know they are.

6. Kane is obsessed with legos right now and this building block Lego costume looks relatively easy to make.

7. This Carmen Miranda costume would be a great way to re-use those pretend kitchen toys gracing your playroom floor.

8. Cam would kill this Anna Wintour look.

9. Send out a whole crew as Mummies by playing a quick TP game first.
