Looking for some last minute but easy homemade Halloween costume ideas? All of these should be cheap to make too!
Homemade Lego Family Costume found on My Plain View
The base of each costume consists of a solid color jogging suit, gloves, and knit hat. The “LEGO” portion of the costume consists of a large box, (our son’s box was actually an empty soda case) that we cut holes into (6 for the adult costume, 4 for the child costume). We then pressed butter bowls through from the inside and secured them on the inside using strips of duct tape. We also cut a hole in the top for our heads, and holes in the sides for our arms.
Once the costumes were constructed, spray paint the boxes red, blue, and yellow.
Jelly Bean Costume found on My Plain View
For the bag of the Homemade Jelly Belly Halloween Costume, I used a large, clear trash bag. I cut holes in the bottoms of the bags for our legs. Inside are obviously just balloons of different colors. I tied the bag around the neck with colorful ribbon and printed out a label from the Jelly Belly website and taped it on.
I might suggest just having the bag stop at your waist instead of cutting holes in the bottom for both legs. It was mighty time-consuming for restroom visits.

Meg from Family Guy
This Meg Griffin from Family Guy Halloween costume was pretty simple. I found a pink shirt as close to Meg’s shirt color as possible. I sewed a white t-shirt underneath (so the white part of the sleeves wouldn’t slide back under). It took a while, but I finally found a pink hat that was almost the exact color as the shirt. Both the shirt and the hat were from Walmart, I believe. The glasses were a pair of “hippie” sunglasses from the Halloween store. I took the lenses out and painted them black. The last step was pin my hair under (my hair is much longer than Meg’s) then put on a pair of jeans and tennis shoes that I already owned. Voila! Meg Griffin!
