When it’s time to come up with Halloween costumes for kids, it’s easy to spend a lot of money on premade costumes at stores. But those costumes can often be expensive and unoriginal. This year, save money and have more fun by using these DIY suggestions from Pfeiffer Plainfield Used.
A single-colored outfit can be the start of something great. Add ears and a tail to a black outfit for a black cat, or create a green cap with construction paper and a headband to wear with all orange for a carrot costume. Get creative!
Opt for Animals
With some basic sewing skills, it’s easy to create simple but fantastic animal costumes. Sew black patches onto a white outfit for a cow costume, or create a goldfish costume by sewing a fin to a yellow and orange jumper or sweatshirt.
When it comes to Halloween, the stranger the costume is the better. Glue paper cut-outs of cats and dogs to an umbrella for a “raining cats and dogs” costume, or sew unmatched socks to a black sweatshirt for a static electricity costume. Try to think of how you can use the materials around your house to create something completely original and fun with your child.
