10 Easy, DIY Halloween Costumes

It’s October! You know what that means? Pumpkin spiced drinks/desserts, costumes, and scary movies are all in sight. Since there’s a lot of us with tons of crazy things to do out there I made a quick list.

A list of 10 easy, DIY Halloween costumes for you.

I found costumes that you could do with stuff you already have in your closet. So easy and saves you money. Have you seen the prices on mediocre costumes nowadays? So we can kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Oh Yea!

Most of these have no instructions, but I am including the link where I found them, in case you needed to see more pictures. Let me know if you have any questions and I can try to find out for you.

#1 – Mary Poppins

Need: Black knee-length skirt, white collar shirt, black hat, black umbrella, black shoes, red bow-tie, red lipstick.

Don’t be afraid to try something new or try to change anything up. The beauty of these is that they are pretty open and not have to wear an exact thing. You basically have to get the gist of it.

Pretty easy to pull off.




Since they all look pretty comfortable, you can also go as crazy as you want that night without worrying about your outfit. And if you have kids, they are good for that too.  Nobody wants to worry about their butt hanging out when their kids are nearby.

Let me know what you think!! Halloween is a fun holiday, but it can easily get a little stressed when trying to figure out a costume. Also, let me know if you have other suggestions for fun, easy costumes. 😀
