DIY Halloween Costumes for kids

 

Halloween costumes can be so pricey, especially considering that many kids will only wear the costume once, so DIY costumes are becoming more & more popular. There are so many fabulous resources now, too, at local thrift stores as well as pulling together items from your own closets, clearance racks & more.

We’ve compiled some of our favorite DIY Halloween costumes for kids as well as themed, family costumes as well!  These are sure to save you some cash, while giving you the opportunity to get creative with your kids!

    1. Hi Britt,

      Thank you for your comment. We apologize for including that costume, and we are removing it right away. We sometimes have folks put together roundups for us, and then we go over them before publishing, so we should have caught that costume and removed it – but for some reason it slipped through the cracks. We are sorry that happened and grateful that you pointed that out. It will be removed immediately. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us, so we can correct that. We will be more watchful in the future for sure!
