30+ DIY Kids Costumes

Do your kids already know what they want to be for Halloween?!

Mine do. Gav wants to be Captain America. Lily wants to be a Butterfly Princess Ballerina (huh?!).

I know this will all change though as soon as they start seeing the costumes at the store, so we’ll probably hold off doing anything about costumes for a bit. You know I’m more of a DIY kind of gal, so I’m going to try and see if I can convince my kids to pick a costume I want to make. :)

If you’re like me and want to make your own costume I have some Halloween costume inspiration for ya.

I’ve scoured the web and have found all my favorite kid costumes. Some of these are just down right hilarious. Can’t wait for you to check them out!!

    What an amazing collection of costumes. Makes me wish I could sew! I think my favorite is the Superman/Clark Kent costume, but I think the Green Army Guy and the White Rabbit are amazing too. I bought my kids costumes at a children’s consignment event (ninja for my son and spider queen for my daughter), but I am going to share these with them for next year. Thanks!

    These DIY costumes show a great deal of imagination and hard work that has gone into creating these outfits. There are plenty to choose from and its hard to pick a favorite because they are all so good. Thanks for taking the time to list all these high quality costumes for us to make.
