DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is right around the corner! Are you ready?! In case you aren’t, I have come up with a few simple and fun DIY Halloween costumes that you can gather last minute.

When it comes to Halloween, I am usually pretty last minute. It’s a shame because Halloween is so much fun, and it’s a time where creatives can really step out of the box!

Unfortunately, we aren’t always prepared a month before Halloween to create an elaborate, award-winning costume. But no worries friends, these quick, easy costumes will do the trick (or treat!)

This cactus costume is a simple DIY made with pipe cleaners! Just be sure your sweater is loosely knit so you don't ruin it!

Boo from Monster's Inc.

The easiest of all, but always so adorable. Complete this look with an oversized pink tee and purple leggings. Boo also carries a teddy bear!


Everyone's favorite aardvark! Arthur was one of my favorite after-school cartoons. Simply throw a yellow sweater over a white button down, add the round glasses, ears, and there you have it! Add a stack of books for extra character.

Farm Girl

The classic fall halloween costume! A denim overall dress, flannel, and boots makes for one cute farm girl! Add some face paint for a scarecrow look.

Minnie Mouse is a halloween classic, and you surely have each of these items in your closet - besides the ears! It's fun to add your own personal style to things, and that's exactly what I did to re-create a fun, sassy Minnie Mouse!

I hope you have found some Halloween inspiration from these costumes. How are you dressing for Halloween this year?!



I would like to give a very special thank you to my co-worker Natalie for taking the time out of her lunch to shoot these photos for me. Also, to the rest of the office for styling advice!
