From the cutest baby chicken to Legos and gumball machines, take a look at 5 of our favorite DIY costumes that we pinned on Pinterest this week.
Have you cruised the local costume shop only to discover picked-over, barren aisles—and the ones that are left are about the most horrible, generic things you’ve ever seen? Fret no more. We found five easy DIY Halloween costumes for kids that are bound to make you go, “awwww!” Click through pics below for full DIY instructions.
Nothing says party like balloons, and this costume is the best excuse in the world for bringing a few into the mix. An old moving box, a handful of brown paper bags and a little elbow grease is all you need to complete this darling hot air balloon and basket. (Hint: you don’t even need real sand to keep this one from floating away.) DIY instructions at Country Living.
What’s cuter than a bunch of stuffed animal kittens and puppies? Just bring a little hot glue and some rain gear along for the ride, and you’ve got the simplest costume imaginable. Although if it’s actually raining, you might need a second umbrella for your furry friends. DIY instructions at Too Stinkin’ Cute.
If your kid spends hours upon hours arranging these little plastic blocks into buildings and spaceships and cityscapes, look no further than this box-based life-size Lego costume. A few craft boxes and some paint is all you need to bring this stunning vision to reality. DIY instructions at Country Living.
Proving that imagination really is the only limiting factor in DIY costumes, we have to give it up to this dazzling gumball machine costume that’s not nearly as complex as it might seem. A couple plastic bowls, some felt and—of course—a bundle of gumballs, and you’re off to the races. DIY instructions at inchmark.
Our love for feather boas is justified once again by this gem of a costume for infants. All you need is a couple oversize onesies and a pair of rubber gloves (plus a few scraps of felt and some buttons), and your bundle of joy will bring smiles a mile wide to everyone who sees her.
