Insanely Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

by Crystal Carder

Every year, around this time, I try to start planning what my kids are going to be for Halloween. I usually go out and buy a costume, but this year, I want to do something else that is easier and cheaper; make my kids their own easy DIY Halloween Costumes. 

Since my kids have already pretty much been every character known to man at one point or another, I love the flexibility that making their Halloween costumes gives me. Plus, my kids are almost guaranteed not to be dressed the same as other kids for Halloween.

To make my list of easy DIY Halloween Costumes helpful for everyone, I have enlisted the help of fellow bloggers. These bloggers have all nailed the costume part of Halloween and are sharing tutorials, so you can too!

Below, I have shared over 30 DIY Halloween Costumes for kids and split them up into sections to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
