DIY Costumes

It’s fun for the family when everyone dresses up on Halloween, but it can also get pricey. With a little bit of creativity, though, there are lots of exciting costumes you can put together at home. The grunge-style clothing you wore in college would look hilarious on your teenager. Have your kiddo step into a clear trash bag, fill it full with blown-up balloons, tie around the neck and … voila! A bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans!

When I have needed a costume quickly, I smear mascara around one of my eyes and use duct tape to form the letter P on my t-shirt. Within minutes, I become a black-eyed pea. It’s quick, SUPER easy, and cost me nothing!

How many of your family’s costumes can you make without spending a penny?
