Five DIY Inexpensive Halloween Costumes

Yes, it is time for trick or treating, parties, and of course costumes. Here are five DIY inexpensive Halloween costumes that I think are absolutely fabulous.

DIY XRay Costume

I found this on Written Reality. It is so cute. And it seems pretty simple, a box, some knobs, spray paint, and well a cardboard skeleton. Go to site to check out the tutorial.

DIY Lego Costume

When I saw this picture of a Lego costume on Baby Rabies, I thought this is beyond cute. And well once again the costume is inexpensive and fairly easy. She gives the original credit to Country Living. Her step by step instructions are great.

DIY Rosie the Riveter Costume

Yes, we all love Rosie. She’s a symbol of so many things. And a costume is super easy. An old blue work shirt with the sleeves rolled up. And then you add a red bandana in your hair, and that’s pretty much all you have to do. It’s super simple.

DIY Chia Pet

You can’t leave your pet out of the celebrations. So with a little felt and some plastic aquarium plants you pet can become a chia pet. You can get the instructions over at Shrimp Salad Circus.

DIY Shaggy and Velma Costume

This one is for those couples out there. And many of the items you probably have around the house already. The ladies will need some knee high socks a skirt, an orange turtleneck. And the guys will need a pair of brown pants and a green t-shirt and shaggy hair. It’s a simple costume that doesn’t hit the wallet too hard.
