50+ DIY Costume Ideas for Kids

If you don’t plan to make costumes for your kids this Halloween, you may have second thoughts after seeing some of these lovely ideas on our Pinterest boards! Let’s begin with the wee little ones, shall we?

Easy DIY Costumes for Baby — I know, right?? Can they get ANY cuter???? The baby turtle almost makes me want to have another baby… *Ahem* Almost! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And baby sushi?? I think I just about died of cuteness. *phew*

Moving right along, then…

Easy DIY Costumes for Boys — Many of these awesome costumes involve absolutely NO sewing. I especially love the Explorer costume from Real Simple because it’s made withย recyclables! (Yay for no-sew costumes made with recyclables!!)


Easy DIY Costumes for Girls — Will the cuteness ever end?? Be sure to check out the “Raining Cats and Dogs” costume, and the scarecrow….Wow!

Altogether there are more than 50 different inspiring ideas for DIY costumes for kids on our Pinterest boards, and we’re adding new ones all the time.
