10 Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Halloween Costumes

My kids have been planning their Halloween costumes since … oh, last Halloween. But please don’t ask me if we have their costumes ready to go yet (we don’t).

If you or your kids are still scrambling to find some easy and inexpensive costumes, we’ve done some of the legwork for you and compiled a list of creative DIY costumes that won’t break the bank. You’ll be able to find something for everyone in the family on this list, and many of them can be made from items you already have!
