25 Homemade Costumes for $25 or Less

Oct 7, 2021 | Celebrate, Halloween | 0 comments

This year (like so many in the past) I pulled out my sewing machine to make our Halloween costumes. Because I am frugal, and costumes are so expensive, we make our costumes almost every year. Plus, I enjoy the creativity of making our family costumes. If that is the case for you this year then I have a few great costume ideas. If you don’t have time to make a costume there are few popular costumes that I thought I would share.

I hope you found a costume that you’re looking for this year. If you didn’t find one here I have a lot more costume ideas here. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I love dressing up and celebrating! I don’t like my kids eating all that candy though… A tradition we have is to watch The Great Pumpkin on Halloween, then the kids can choose to give away their candy for something better. My kids love this tradition and look forward to it every year.

Do you have any fun Halloween traditions?
