Halloween is almost here! If you haven't even thought about your costume yet… I've got your back!
Here's a quick round-up of all of my favorite DIY Halloween costumes on the interwebz.
The best part? Many of these can be thrown together with things around your house. So don't feel the need to go pop $40 on an Elsa costume… Get a little crafty and make your own. Most of these are super simple and don't require serious crafting abilities (I have none- my husband sews better than I do).
Once Halloween is over this year, try to think ahead. We picked up our kids costumes for about 90% off in the post-Halloween sales last year. Keep in mind, older kids may be really opinionated about what they want to be, but at 1 year and 3 years, my little ones care more about the candy than their costume.
I'd love to be the mom someday that makes amazing costumes for her kids from scratch, but for now I'm thrilled to be the mom that makes sure her kids have costumes and an awesome Halloween. Small wins. 🙂
