Easy to Make DIY Halloween Costumes

 

Need DIY Halloween costume ideas? Here are a few easy to make costumes using everyday household items courtesy of RealSimple.com. Visit the site to learn how to make these fun DIY Halloween costumes!

Movie Director

When it’s time to yell “ACTION!”, this little guy takes the lead. His classic get-up (black pants, cardigan, bow tie, beret) is easy enough for any behind-the-scenes movie-maker to pull off. And since no high profile director steps on set without his essentials—megaphone and clapboard—get the simple how-tos for making them

Spelling Bee

This costume starts with a basic black leotard and matching opaque tights. Dress up the leotard with yellow tape and adhesive letters, tack on wings made from wire clothes hangers and voila, your busy bee is ready to buzz around!

Rocket Man

Dress your space explorer in all white and add duct tape for arm band and leg stripe accents. What would a rocket man be without a rocket? Tape together two empty Pringles cans, top each of with a party hat, spray paint them all silver and add some fun streamers to the bottom. Ready for takeoff!

Saturn

An idea that’s—c’mon, we have to say it—out-of-this-world. This getup revolves around black pants and shirt (or black sweats) sprinkled with a constellation of shining star stickers. Layer on a bright sweatshirt that you’ve painted with Saturn-like bands (get the how-tos). Then add a pillow for stuffing and top it all off with as many “rings” as your little star can twirl.

Mad Scientist

It’s time for an experiment! Make sure your scientist looks the part with khakis, a plaid shirt and bow tie. Add on a lab coat, goggles, and a “beaker” filled with a colorful gummy worm concoction that’s just as fun to show off as it is to eat!

Monarch Butterfly

Fluttering around the front yard waiting for her Halloween adventure to begin. Dress your little lady in all black. To create her wings, you’ll need hangers, black trash bags, and colorful tape (get the how-tos). And for her royal duds, it’s simple to pull together this crown with some felt and everyday office supplies.
