Halloween On A Budget: 12 DIY Kids Costumes

Halloween is one of the most expensive holidays we celebrate! With the parties, decorations, and costumes, it’s no wonder we spent nearly eight million dollars last year for this holiday as a country! If you’re looking to save a few bucks this year, you’ve come to the right place. Your kids will have fun memories of trick-or-treating (and the inevitable tummy ache afterwards) whether you spent $5 on their costume, or $500, so why not be frugal? Here are a few of our favorite budget friendly costumes from around the web. Take a look and get inspired to dress up your little monster!

Cutest Unicorn Ever

I love this precious costume idea! Plus, it’s comfy and cozy for that chilly October weather. Plus, this could easily turn into a My Little Pony costume, if that’s what your little one is obsessed with.

Baby Bubble Gum Machine

Is there anything cuter than a baby in a costume?! Probably, but I can’t think of anything at the moment. I just love this simple and clever idea!

Penny Pinching Octopus

This adorable octopus costume could be yours for the low low price of 4 pairs of tights and a hat! What a fun and funky costume!

Savvy Snail

Butcher paper, styrofoam balls, and a headband. That’s all you need to turn your kid into the most precious snail that ever walked the face of the earth!

Trendy Fox

Go ahead and jump on the “everything fox” bandwagon. All the cool kids are doing it. And now yours can too! For real though, how cute is this costume?!
