DIY Halloween Costumes For Kids

Buying Halloween costumes for your children can be an expensive task, and it’s often more economical (and fun) to make them at home! Using old clothes, scissors and glue and some bits from the craft shop, here is how to make some of our favourite DIY children’s Halloween costumes. 

Pea Pod

This costume idea works for children of any age, but looks especially adorable for the little ones who are having their first Halloween. It’s very simple – just gather up some old green clothing in the form of onesies, t-shirts, leggings or anything that will fit and they no longer need. If you have a bright green hat, that’s even better! The only thing you’ll need to buy are some big green pom-poms from your local craft store, which are relatively cheap. Glue these onto the part of the costume that will cover the chest and down the stomach, close together so they look like a line of peas. Add some little green socks and gloves and there you have it – a walking pea pod!

Safety Tip: Try to choose a neon green colour when selecting the clothes to help your child stay visible to cars and motorcyclists while trick or treating

Mr Bump

Is your little one a little clumsy? Dress them up in a white t shirt and leggings (for warmth), then wrap some toilet paper around your child’s arms, chest, legs and a bit around the forehead. Fasten with plenty of cheap sticky plasters from your medicine cabinet and, before you know it, you have a mini Mr Bump.

Safety Tip: While it’s always helpful to make costumes on a budget, try to splash out for some glow in the dark plasters to decorate your child’s costume with. These plasters will help them stay visible in the dark and avoid accidents with oncoming traffic.

Ghost

Stick to a classic, and make your child a simple, yet scary, ghost costume using an old white sheet. Dress them up in a white top and leggings for warmth, then drape a sheet large enough to cover your child without dragging across the ground. Cut out eye holes, draw a scary face, and cover with glitter for a supernatural glow!

Safety Tip: If possible, try to use a nylon, polyester or silk bed sheet to make this costume, as they are much less flammable than a cotton or blend sheet. This costume is also practical, as if it does catch alight by accident then your child can quickly throw it off and avoid any serious harm.
