WANTING OPTIONS FOR UNIQUE & INEXPENSIVE KIDS’ HALLOWEEN COSTUMES? WE HAVE YOUR TODDLER COVERED WITH THESE DIY IDEAS!
Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, which means it’s time to start thinking about a fun costume both you and your child will love. With opportunities to get dressed up for our Halloween parties on Oct 30 & 31 at Claire’s Day School as well as trick-or-treating on Halloween evening, find an outfit that will make your kid happy and part of the festivities. Costumes at the stores can be overpriced, uninspired, and often unavailable, so instead of buying a costume this year, make one using one of the tutorials from some great resources we’ve linked below!
Felt Monarch Butterfly:
Even though the real butterflies are hiding away for the winter, they still make for a great Halloween costume that is easy to make and custom sized to your child. Be sure to measure their wingspan when drawing the wings to make it the perfect length. Add black long sleeves & leggings for a warmver version than pictured.
You more than likely have all of the things needed for this last minute DIY costume, and it’s just an added bonus that it is adorable – and gender neutral! Your toddler will be the hit of any costume party as the Scuba Diver.
Rocket Jet Packs:
Once again liter bottles create an excellent costume accesory. This easy DIY is perfect for the little one on the go! Not to mention, the materials needed are likely already in your kitchen and craft drawers!
This fluffy pink flamingo costume is a quick and easy DIY option for a last-minute costume. With little supplies necessary, this is great for when you are in a pinch!
