You won’t run out of ideas any time soon. At least not for the next 30 years! Enjoy these 30 kid’s halloween costumes on a budget…
1. DIY Scooby Doo Gang
Happy Halloween from Scooby and the gang! Just in case you’re not familiar (what??) or maybe just forgot what the original Velma and Daphne looked like, here was my inspiration for the girls’ costumes:
2. DIY Flinstones Halloween Costume
Bam Bam is minimally clad, though, and I didn’t think my four-year-old son would be pleased Trick or Treating in basically a furry diaper, so I turned my little ones into Fred and Wilma Flintstone!
Another instant classic that will stand out.
4. Wolverine Cosplay Costume
Grow out the sideburns or glue some on for the night after you grab a dog tag and glvoes from a Halloween shop.
5. Ace Ventura
This one is super simple and will give everyone a good laugh.
6. Ace Ventura Pet Detective
This one might be tough to find the pieces but it won’t end up costing you too much.
I find it slightly annoying that all baby/toddler costumes are cute and UN horror related. Maybe I’m the only one but anyways… Chucky was always my favorite horror flick growing up and to this day it still is!
Your child will be the cutest sailor this Halloween when wearing this realistic Popeye costume. The outfit features “muscle arms,” so your child is sure to be rewarded with candy for having eaten all his spinach. Made of 100-percent polyester, this is comfortable for trick-or-treating.
9. Incredible Hulk
Green and black body paint and you’re good to go!
10. DIY Police Costume
I wanted to do an extra post this week (1) to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! and (2) to share Lucas’s DIY costume. Joey’s mom has sewn Lucas’s costumes every year and this year was no different. He wanted to be a policeman and boy did he make a cute one…
11. Lawn Gnome
Warning – not a REAL gnome.
12. Starry Night
What a beautiful painting…
13. Toddler Gnome
You can do it yourself or you can grab it on Etsy!
You can drop by any Halloween pop-up shop for this costume!
Do you have a little prince that needs an outfit? I think the one in the picture is handmade but there are plenty to choose from online. They are all so cute. Maybe it’s just me because I have all boys. 🙂
The mummy costume , along with the zombie costume , is one of the most popular to wear on Halloween , but also for Carnival or for any costume party.
This Minion Costume is so easy to make! The perfect homemade Halloween costume, with simple instructions to sew a Minion hat!
18. Halloween Biker
This one speaks for itself!
Uh-oh. The spider is running around the house!
20. Kissing Booth
This adorable tot will be breaking hearts with his kissing booth costume. And only 5 cents? We can afford that.
21. DIY Bum
Your kid will just love his beard painted with chocolate body paint (let’s hope he doesn’t lick it all off). The cardboard sign pulls the whole look together.
22. Old Man
PVC Pipe, two tennis balls, and a few clothes from the thrift shop!
23. The Scarecrow
We bought everything and made it ourselves. We bought overalls and brown shoes from the goodwill. 2 yards of burlap, left over from our rustic wedding, to use to make patches and his hat. We bought raffia and the perfect plaid shirt from Wally-world, and broke out the glue gun!
24. Cracked Doll
Dress your kids up as a creepy cracked doll! It is super easy, cheap and fun to make!
You can find many how-to’s here!
All you need is a few boxes, some tape, and markers!
27. Raggedy Andy & Raggedy Ann
They look just like the real thing!
28. Classic Pilot
When the party store will be picked over and you aren’t stoked about a store-bought costume anyway, what do you do? Just choose one!
This costume is budget friendly too with a superman t-shirt, glasses, shirt & tie! Cutest Superbaby ever!
30. Toilet Paper Mummies
This toilet paper mummies game is a classic Halloween activity. I was really excited to be able to introduce it to my kids now that they are old enough that they are willing to let me completely cover them in toilet paper from head to toe.
