Feeling Spooky? Here are some Halloween DIY Costumes

Halloween: the time of year where parents across Canada tear their hair out trying to perfect their child’s costume. Of course, the easy answer is just to whip out to the local pop-up Halloween Store and buy a ghost mask and a black cape, but if you’re looking for a little more pizazz this year, look no further than these great DIY costume ideas from Today’s Family.

Tiny Pumpkin Costume
You will need
An orange pillow case
Black felt
A hot glue gun
Some scissors

Turn the pillow case inside out (opening side down), and trace out holes for the arms and head. Cut them out, but remember to measure twice and cut once! Cut out three large triangles and a zig-zag mouth from the brown felt, and then glue it to the front of the pumpkin. If you want to go all-out, also pick up some green felt and make some leaves for around the neck hole.

Thrift Shop Scarecrow
This costume will surely scare away the crows – and also have your friends go “what, WHAT?!”
You will need
A flannel shirt from a thrift shop
Plastic hula skirt from the dollar store
A floppy hat
A hot glue gun

Cut up the hula skirt into strips, and glue into the inside of the flannel shirt’s cuffs, the bottom of the shirt, and the inside brim of the hat. Bonus points for also having some stick out of your pockets for added authenticity!
