Simple Homemade Halloween Costumes

Oct 26, 2020 | Celebrate, Halloween | 0 comments

In need of a cute easy Costume? I got your back!! I have always loved the cute and fun Halloween costumes and décor! Growing up it was always about having fun and being creative with anything we found around the house for our costumes. I have 7 easy homemade Halloween costumes to share with you that will save you money and get your creativity going. If you want to see more of our previous costumes we’ve done some really fun family costumes. Over the years we have enjoyed making many of our own family-themed and occasionally individual, costumes (I have lots of fun ideas for individual costumes).

Easy DIY Costumes

My two fun models and I gathered up some clothes and props from around the house to share some of our fun and easy costume ideas. These are all simple enough they can be thrown together last minute if you didn’t have time to make or buy a costume before Halloween crept up on you.

  1. The GHOST
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • This is one of the most traditional and easiest costumes to be able to throw together for a fun quick costume.
      • a white sheet, duct tape, and; black cardstock paper
      • Place the sheet over (depending on the size of the sheet and person you might need to fold it in half) evenly, making sure they won’t easily trip.
      • Cut the cardstock into two fun circles or ovals (any eye shape you’d like) and place duct tape on the back of them and stick them to the sheet.
      • I recommend placing the eyes of the ghost on the forehead that way they can see. Alternatively, you could put them lower on the ghost for a fun look.
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • This couple’s costume is always classic, fun easy, and bright. This one you can have fun sprucing up the Labels or making a joke on it or anything like that.
      • Red and Yellow shirts, cardstock paper (Red, Yellow, and, 2 White), black sharpie, duct tape, and bobby pins.
      • You can easily cut out the shape you want for the labels of the ketchup and mustard, and duct tape the labels onto their shirts, then make the cone shape with the cardstock and tape it, after that then use bobby pins to hold it nicely to the head.
  3. GYPSY
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • The gypsy or fortune teller is always a fun and colorful one that you can play up a lot.
      • Some loose flowy pants, a couple of scarfs (fun bright, and colorful is always good), and a crystal ball.
      • The ball is fun but not necessary, the crystal ball could be anywhere from a small fun marble, to a sports ball, to random house decoration, or one you make out of material :D, just have fun with it and be creative.
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • The cookie costume is delicious and cute all at the same time.
      • Brown pants, and shirt (if possible but doesn’t matter), 2 pieces of black cardstock
        paper, duct tape, a large piece of cardboard from a box,& bobby pins.
      • Cut the cardstock into a fun big circle, cut one into multiple triangles for the “chocolate
        chips, and the other you make into a cone for the top of the head.
      • Make a handle on the back of the cookie to hold onto with the duct tape, or you can just tape it on your shirt (it might be a little too heavy for that option) and then you are ready to bobby pin the big “chocolate chip” on the head.
      • You can always choose to spruce it up with paint and do one or two chocolate chips on your face, just have fun with it, and make it your own like Evee did with the bite taken out of her cookie 😀Easy homemade Cookie Halloween Costume
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • The candy beggar DIY Halloween costume is a quick one you can throw together.
      • Multiple clothes for layering, a beanie, some brown makeup, cardboard, sharpie, pipe cleaner or string, & a pillowcase
      • You can spruce this up so many ways and add as many fun props as you can think of, even maybe a backpack or a cart as your bag as well.
      • Candy beggar costume easy homemade
  6. CAT
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • A cute classic that is easy to make your own by sprucing it up with some fun face paint.
        • Black shirt and pants, pipe cleaners, black eyeliner or makeup, bobby pins.
        • Super simple to keep with the black shirt and pants, then you shape your two pipe cleaners into triangles and bobby pin them to your hair for the cute cat ears.
        • Then simple and easy whiskers with some makeup.
        • You can easily add a tail with another pipe cleaner too.
    • Supplies and Instructions
      • This fun fisher costume is easy if you’ve ever gone fishing or have someone in your family who loves to fish. Get ready as if you were going fishing, but instead, you’ll fish for candy! 
      • Outdoor clothes that you could see yourself using to go fishing, a fishing net, and any other fishing gear you’d want to use to spruce it up.
      • Your net can easily be used as your trick–or–treat bag for fun.
      • For the fisherman costume, you can easily add a vest to spruce it up or some rain boots.
