5 Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

PEKIN, Ill. –– Helping your kid choose a great costume for Halloween can be tedious and expensive. This year, instead of spending money on an outfit they’ll only wear once and outgrow before this time next year, try making one of these 5 easy DIY Halloween costumes for kids that will prove to be lots of fun for you and your kid!

1. DIY Bed Sheet Mummy

For this Halloween costume, cut an old bed sheet into long strips then embalm your little tike by wrapping and tying the strips around their arms, legs, and torso.

2. DIY Candy Bum

This one is a classic. Grab some old cloths, tatter them with scissors, sew on a few patches, and let your kid be dirty for once. Don’t worry; they can wash up after they finish trick-or-treating.

3. DIY Biker Baby

If you ride a Harley, why not have your little one follow in your footsteps this Halloween? Use makeup or face paint to draw on a rather premature goatee and a tattoo you’d never let them get, tie a bandana around their head, and put them in some biker jeans and a Harley T-shirt. Sorry rough riders out there, but these baby bikers might make you look a little less intimidating.

4. DIY Minion

This costume is super easy. Just find a yellow shirt, some overalls, and a yellow knit hat. Make the Minion eye and goggle out of felt pieces, then glue or stitch them to the hat. Make sure you remind your kid to say trick-or-treat in Minion, which would simply be, “Bedo!”

5. DIY Living LEGO Brick

Find a box that matches the shape of your kid’s favorite LEGO brick and paint it their a color they choose. Cut holes in the box for their head, arms, and legs. What you use for the studs in the front is up to you, but Solo cups could work well! Color-coordinate their clothes and Voila!

It’s so much more fun to make something with your kids rather than go pay an excessive amount for something they’ll only wear once.
