DIY Family Halloween Costumes

DIY Family Halloween CostumesOrganizing Halloween costumes for yourself and toddlers can be a little hectic. Not to mention the cost of some costumes can be little absurd. If you’d rather do something a little more fun, creative, and cost effective we have a few ideas for you! These days movies and television stars are plastered everywhere from back to school folders, notebooks, and your child’s book bags to clothing and even sometimes the noodles of Kraft Mac n Cheese. It’s easy to find a popular kid’s show to get some inspiration for this year’s Halloween.

Today we are sharing 8 DIY popular ideas for your family’s Halloween costumes:

Minions from Despicable Me: This has been such a popular idea this year! Everything from dressing up your dog to your babies has been all over the web and we are loving it! To master this look all you need are some boxes and paint. Paint up your boxes to create your minions and then all you’ll need are black pants to complete this awesome Halloween look!

The Walking Dead: Dress the whole family up as your favorite Walking Dead characters! This can either be as zombies or as one of the main characters such as Rick or Carl. Either one can be assembled with old clothes and fake blood!

Frozen: Right now it’s every little girl’s dream to be Princess Anna or Queen Elsa. Get the whole family on board and dress up like the whole crew of Frozen. If you have a little boy they can join too as either Kistoff or Olaf! There are lots of ways to make these outfits with fabric and other materials. Checkout tutorials on YouTube!

Your Favorite Board Game: Whether your family is into Clue, Monopoly, or another board game, you can create awesome Halloween costumes to depict your family’s favorite games! Just like the minions idea, all you’ll need is some cardboard and paint. This is a great way for the whole family to get involved and create their own creative board game costume!

Star Wars: With the new movie and video game about to release it’s no wonder this idea is so popular for Halloween! For R2-D2 you can create your costume out of a box, and if you have a little girl who wants to dress up as Princess Leah a white robe will do the trick.

Goosebumps: Goosebumps is another series that will be expecting a new movie! With all the different monsters and characters it might be a little difficult picking your inspiration, but creating your outfit will be a lot of fun!

The Avengers: Who doesn’t want to be a superhero? This year make your own Avengers’ costumes with things lying around your home.

Lego Movie: The Lego Movie is another 2015 favorite! A large amount of cardboard will be needed!
