Sharing is caring!

DIY 40+

Halloween is just 30 days away!  Have your kids made their final choices on their costumes?  If they’re anything like mine, they like to change their minds, oh about 10 times before we get the actual costume!  If you’re tight on money, or just like to be crafty, this is the post for you!  I have come up with over 40 different Do It Yourself Halloween Costumes that will please anyone and everyone!  There are even a few ideas for the whole family to coordinate with each other.  Make this Halloween memorable- work on some costumes together with your kiddos and take lots of pictures.  They WILL remember the costume that mom made, just as my favorite costume was one that my mom made for me when I was younger.
