Still need a cool Halloween costume for your kid that won't break your budget? Then check out these five fabulous ideas! Using items from around the house and a few craft store supplies, you can put these clever outfits together in minutes. And the best part? They're all $25 and under!
Fashionista/Pop Star (girls, 7+)
Make her dreams come true (for at least one night)! Let her dress up as her favorite singing sensation.
Embellish a pair of old jeans with glitter spray and a few funky iron-ons. Try the jean.e.ology line from Plaid for cool peace signs, studded designs and more.
Decorate a plain, long sleeve t-shirt in her favorite color. We love this "Rock Princess" iron-on or she can draw on her own designs with glittery fabric paint or other embellishments.
Grab her favorite boots and sunglasses and cool costume jewelry to finish the look!
Your son loves to rock too? Get him ready to hit the stage with a few funky craft supplies.
Rock Star (boys/girls, any age)
Embellish an old pair of jeans with a graphic tattoo-like iron-on.
Have your rocker wear his favorite concert tee (layer a long sleeve tee underneath if it's cool out) or have him embellish an old T-shirt with more rock-inspired iron-ons or use fabric paint to write his favorite band.
To finish up, spike his hair, add a pair of canvas sneakers or black boots, sunglasses and an inflatable guitar.
Super Hero (boys, 4-6)
If your little guy swears he has superpowers, indulge him with this awesome disguise.
Order your child a personalized superhero cape with his initial on the back! Pair it with one of his colored sweatuits and stick on a few glittery felt stars to the front of the sweatshirt.
Add his rain boots and a pair of swim goggles or over-sized sunglasses and he'll be ready to save Halloween!
Art Project (boys/girls, all ages)
Say yes to a mess as you help your tot paint their his costume!
Protect your work area with a drop cloth. Place an old white sweatsuit and sneakers on top.
Fill empty squeeze bottles, with Crayola's washable kids paint and help your child squirt the paints all over the top and pants and let dry. Flip the clothes over and repeat.
Lil' Olympian (boys, any age)
Use photos of your child's favorite Olympian to help inspire this patriotic outfit.
Start with an old track suit or sweatsuit. Use stick-on felt letters to spell out USA across the top. Embellish the top and pants with stick-on felt glitter stars.
Cut out Olympic rings from colored stick-on felt sheets. Cut a slit in each ring to make it easier to interlock them as you attach them to the back of the shirt.
To make a gold medal, flatten a metallic cupcake liner. Add a stick-on felt number. Cut a piece of patriotic ribbon long enough to hang from your child's neck, loop and glue to the back of the medal.
Tip: For a unique treat bag, take a digital picture of your child in his costume. Print it out and glue it to the front of an empty Wheaties box. Cut the top flaps off and attach a ribbon handle using paper fasteners.
She'll prance around in this fantasy-inspired costume long after Halloween is over!
Pretty Unicorn (girls, ages 4 -6)
Start with a pink leotard and leggings. Cut up a white marabou boa into strips long enough to fit around her ankles and waist and glue in place.
To make a tail, cut the boa in strips long enough to fall from her backside to the back of her knees. Tie the strips together with a rubber band. Make a bow out of pink ribbon and glue to cover the rubber band. Attach the tail to the seat of the pants with a safety pin.
Dress your child in her outfit, ballet shoes and a unicorn headband. Use your own makeup to add on a black nose and pink blush.
