Simple & Cheap Family Costumes

Halloween is my FAVORITE time of year. I love everything about it. Well, minus the readily accessible, copious amounts of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. Those things are my kryptonite. And the unoriginal people. They bore me and everyone else.

I LOVE making costumes and trying to find outside of the box ways to make a costume less expensive. I can’t stand the way that the fabric of those grocery store bought outfits feel on my skin, and they just look so¬†underwhelming on anyone.

Since my son’s first Halloween, I’ve been mixing together cheaper, store bought elements with thrift store finds and simple DIYs. They’re always cheap, no sew, and often the fabric I use is from T-shirts at thrift shops.

I’ll be posting the last few years of our Halloween costumes, maybe they can help get your creative juices flowing. Starting with baby’s first Halloween.
