Unless you’re Charlie Brown, it’s pretty easy to take a sheet, cut a few holes in it and call it a ghost, but you mind find yourself with a pretty unhappy trick-or-treater if that’s as far as your creativity will take you this year.
While there is always the option of going to the store and buying a premade costume, often these can be poorly made, expensive and unimaginative. That’s why we are hoping that you genius parents out there are willing to give and take a few Halloween tips and tell us not only the most exciting Halloween costume you ever made, but how you did it!
We explored the Internet and found a ton of adorable, easy and sometimes even earth-friendly options:
Martha Stewart’s Spring Chicken Costume is extremely cute and cuddly and will fit in well around these parts. It’s super simple – just some loose wool batting, a couple feather boas and a little red felt (Appropriate for children ages 3 and older)
Likewise, Reader's Digest Do-It-Yourself Skunk costume for babies is beyond adorable and can be put together with a feather boa, some fake fur and a black t-shirt and leggings.
TheDailyGreen.com has a great listing of recycled Halloween costumes including a great crocodile made out of a cardboard box, some butcher and tissue paper and a little tape.
Please share your ideas and creative successes (or even failures, we've all been there) in the comments.
