DIY Halloween Costume Roundup

The countdown to Halloween is in single digits and if you’re a last-minute planner for your kiddos like I am (they keep changing their minds so I figure it’s best to wait) OR if you’ve just decided that yes, you’d like to dress up, you might be looking for last minute costume ideas. But beyond environmental concerns, even Amazon Prime is hard to trust at this point and who wants to brave the Halloween stores now, so today I’m partnering with some other mom bloggers for an awesome DIY costume roundup! Find your inspo here.

Lumberjack, Lego piece, bubble bath, tooth fairy, “raining cats and dogs”, and a bumble bee: The Chrissy Marie Blog offers tutorials for some of the cutest creative costumes you ever did see.

The BEST couples’ outfits can be found on The Babbling Blondes blog including Publisher’s Clearing House, Elvis and Pricilla, Ron Burgendy and Veronica, Kramer and Elaine, and sooo many more. You won’t regret the click-through.

If you have a Disney Descendants fan, this Mal DIY costume tutorial from Our Family Code is what your child has been hoping you’ll discover.

Family costumes are where Sass & Smalls shines! Mary Poppins and the Vegas crew are just two of their amazing Halloween incarnations. Check out her costume retrospective for years of awesomeness.


When I wrote the Halloween Costumes for Your Little Feminist blog post, DIY wasn’t even the theme… but Queen Elizabeth II, Rosie, Frida Khalo, Pink, and Iris Aphel all came together using what we had around the house. Take a peek at the post!

And last but not least, a few years ago, my pals Erin Crooks and Karyn Kimberley joined me in doing a post on the Halloween costumes you already have in your closet. From this scarecrow and tourist to Wayne and Garth, a hippie, and more, this is a post that deserves another peek.

Have some ideas of your own? Please feel free to share that inspo in the comments. Happy DIY’ing!
