With just about 6 weeks left until Halloween, it's not too early to start thinking about costumes. To help with that task here's a roundup of fun homemade ideas I've seen around.
If anyone ends up making one of these I'd love to see pictures!
Frankenstein- Check out FamilyFun for this great (and easy to make) idea. (I especially love how they made the forehead.)
Firefighter- Activity Villiage had this is an adorable idea, simply using a raincoat and some duct tape. There's even a link for instructions on making your own helmet if you want to.
Also from Family Fun- How about being an Ipod!
Check out this super simple pumpkin made with a sweatshirt by Mia Cronan from Kaboose.
I love this gorgeous butterfly costume from Martha Stewart Living. Aren't those wings beautiful!
How about this super cute gingerbread cookie costume from Family Fun. I might have to make this for myself this year! And wouldn't a flour sack make a perfect trick-or-treat bag to go with it.
Better Homes and Gardens had this how-to for a spider.
I can't believe how cheap and simple this lego costume from FamilyFun looks to make.
This hula dancer idea from Martha is too cute! Although probably not practical if you live in an area where it's chilly (or downright cold) for Halloween.
Robots are always popular. Here's a great version by Mia Cronan from Kaboose.
Here's another version of the classic pumpkin, given a dramatic twist by FamilyFun.
And last but not least, go batty with this costume from Martha Stewart. This is the most clever bat costume I've seen! It uses an umbrella for the wings. I love it!
Have a great weekend! And if you've got some great costume ideas please send them to me- I'd love to do another roundup.
