DIY #1 Corn Halloween Costume
Because maize is a beautiful thing (it's corn! ), if we've learnt anything in 2022, it's that. Take the trend head-on with this beautiful concept.
DIY #2 Bushel of Apples Costume
Make the costume: Start with a peck bushel basket and remove the bottom. Attach red suspenders. Make the balloon apples by using small red balloons(with uninflated green water balloon ties) to fill the basket with “apples.” Embellish a red felt beret with a felt “stem” and “leaf.”
DIY #3 Cowboy and Horse Halloween Costume

DIY #4 Haunted House Halloween Costume
Embellish a cardboard box with craft paint, muslin for the shutters, and paper and wire for the bats.
DIY #5 Jar of Pickles and Pickle Halloween Costumes
We adore this concept for a sibling costume!
Use craft paper for the label, corrugated paper and cardboard for the lid, plastic sheeting for the glass, and long green "twister" balloons for the pickles in the jar (blow up to roughly seven inches long).
Create a romper for the pickle out of felt polka dots over a green onesie for a "sidepick" that is more sweet than sour.
DIY #6 White Swan Halloween Costume
You'll be prepared to take a bow after creating this stunning costume.
DIY #7 Librarian Halloween Costume
Quiet, please! We love this costume idea for kids of a sophisticated librarian. A Peter Pan collar top, cardigan sweater, and plaid skirt (which you probably already own in your closet) round out the outfit, which is accessorized with a library card canvas tote as a theme-appropriate candy carryall. Remember to include a pair of glasses.
DIY #8 Flower Pot Halloween Costume
Your child's flower costume can be fully bloomed with just a few ingredients! Start with a green leotard and tights as a foundation. Make leaf sleeves out of green felt and dark green embroidery thread. Create a petal face piece using pink felt (or her favorite color) next. To make a flower ballerina, substitute a green tutu for the plastic pot.
