Pinspiration Friday: DIY Halloween Costumes


I've seen a lot of adorable Halloween Costumes on Pinterest....
and some really scary looking ones.

Like this one...
Oye.
Cool makeup but a little too much for me.
I made it small because it scares me.

However... here are some of my favorite clever/adorable
Halloween Costumes for Adults and Kids.

Beanie Baby

Edward Scissorhands

Sally from "Nightmare"

Seinfeld Costumes

Starbucks Drink

The Birds

Wayne's World
I can't get over this one.  Too cute!

Some of my other favorites from kids or parents we've seen at our door are:
Laundry Basket - Cut out bottom of laundry basket, attach straps to hold up, pile clothing all over the basket and the child.  The girl we saw had a sock on her head.
An Old Man - Blazer, cane, bald spot - hilarious!  The little guy even yelled at us for being "rowdy".
Legos - Cardboard box, plastic bowls, glue, spray paint.  This is great couples costume!  You can put the bowls on the front and on the back (just cut a hole in the back and put the bowl into the box)... and then you can fit together!
Green Army Man - Green army jacket and pants, green helmet, green gun, green face paint, and a green board to stand on for pictures.
Medusa - Dollar Store snakes glue into a headpiece (crown/hat), use a sheet to make a dress, do some killer makeup - awesome costume!!!

What are some of your favorite Halloween costumes???
