Homemade Halloween costumes can be unique and cool without spending too much money. How about these suggestions?

Static Electricity

This simple costume makes for an easy and funny Halloween. All you need is a normal outfit plus a lot of socks. If you’re gifted in sewing, you can sew the socks to the outfit, but you can also use a glue gun, safety pins, tape, or whatever works for you.

Jellyfish

A ruffled dress and a matching hat made to look like a jellyfish with trailing strings is all it takes to dress up your little one like a jellyfish so they can terrorize the neighborhood with their stingers.

Raining Cats and Dogs

Want a cute visual pun? Put your child in a raincoat and give them an umbrella – but make sure to decorate the umbrella with little cut-outs of clipart of cats and dogs first!

Knight

Armor made out of cardboard and spray-painted with metallic silver paint can be worn over a makeshift tunic and pants for a simple, easy knight costume.

Scuba Diver

If you can find footie pajamas with a hood, you can pull off this scuba diver costume! Just pair it with a set of goggles and some flippers, and you’re set.

Making homemade Halloween costumes for your kids that will stand out from the crowd doesn’t have to be difficult if you consider options like these.
