Halloween is coming up! It’s amazing to me how quickly it seemed to sneak up on us this year. Does it seem like that to you too? My home is already decorated for Halloween! Do you have plans yet for Halloween costumes for you or the kids? If you want to avoid the store-bought, commercialized version of Halloween this year, why not create a DIY costume? If you have no idea where to even start with a DIY costume, I’ve got you covered! Below, you will find some creative DIY Costume Ideas for kids and adults! Have fun!
CREATIVE DIY COSTUME IDEAS
I love funny, weird and ironic costumes, don’t you? Combine that with easy and cheap to make and that is the perfect costume to me! Here are some of my favorite creative DIY Costume ideas.
A DIY mummy costume is always a classic monster look and a great costume idea. To get a more realistic look, you can soak an old white sheet in a tub or sink with tea bags. The tea coloring will give the sheet an aged looked. Rip the sheet into strips (scissors will look too clean, rips give to the zombie look better). First, wear white to prevent color bleed-through and then wind the strips around your body tying each end to each other to hold the costume together.
HOT AIR BALLOON
Be a hot air balloon! I love this idea and it goes so well with fall! Made with a cardboard box and some other things laying around your home and you have yourself a unique, yet super cool costume! Love this idea! So fun!
You can find green body paint at just about any store for relatively cheap during the Halloween shopping season. Buy some of this green skin paint and find your oldest flannel shirt (or hit up a thrift shop for one). With the green paint cover your face, neck, arms, and chest. Next, rip up your flannel shirt and put it on over the paint.
CLOUDS AND RAIN
I love this idea and it goes so well with fall! The Balloon Thunderstorm Cloud Costume is so cute! Just find a grey shirt and matching leggings or sweats and then paint blue raindrops all over the outfit.
Static cling is one of the costumes that are weird and funny and I just love. Yes, with just a few simple steps you can become static cling! Using safety pins, attach random socks to your outfit. There are SO many awesome DIY Costume Ideas to choose from! I am loving these so far, aren’t you???
DIY GNOME HALLOWEEN COSTUME

LIFE BRINGS YOU LEMONS
Take a white or yellow tee shirt and use a sharpie to write the word LIFE on it (or you can buy it on Amazon.com!). Carry along a basket full of lemons and now you have a Life Brings You Lemons costume. Unique and kind of funny!
The 80s is such a classic decade as far as style goes. You can easily create an 80s costume by putting in a sideways ponytail, applying some blue eyeshadow and throwing on some neon clothes.
This is an easy one, but a clever one. Grab some face paint and decorate one side of your face while leaving the other make-up and paint free. Or, paint it in a completely different manner. You are now two-faced. Check out this awesome tutorial for a creative no-sew two-face costume!
