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.

Human Pinterest Board fond on Parties for Pennies

Supplies: Cork Board (or just card board), Ribbon and printed pictures..Push Pins if use Cork Board

This one is pretty easy to create.. Just have fun with it!

Pac Man (found this one on Pinterest but could not find the original site

With this costume.. Wear all black and cut out a Pac Man shape and Two Yellow Dots. Just tape on to Shirts.. Pretty Easy!

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!

Bunch of Grapes (another Pinterest find…not linked back)

My mom made a costume similar to this for my sister and brother one year.. Super simple!

Need: Purple or Green Balloons. All purple or green clothing. Safety Pin

 

Are you looking for a cute way to share Halloween treats with someone special? I saw this idea on another blog and thought I would share! It’s called “You’ve Been Boo-ed!!“. What you do is visit You’ve Been Boo-ed! website and print the cute little note above. Fill a bag or cute container with Halloween Goodies (include the note)… You then visit the recipiant and ring their door bell and RUUUUUNNNN! They open the door and all they see is the treats!

I want to do this for a few of our friends but their houses take a bit to get to them since they have big front lawns. We have never been Boo-ed but I am sure my son would love it! Have you been Boo-ed??? Or have you Boo-ed anyone?

These Easy Felt Trees are so pretty and found on Work It Mom made by Leah.  She found these in a catalog and were more than she wanted to pay… so she got crafty and made her own.  Only a few supplies are needed and super easy to make.  Your kiddo’s can even help with gluing on the felt circles.  What I love about this project is you can make any color felt tree.  I would love to make some grey and cream with sparkles!
