Thanks for stopping by to check out my list of Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids! I have always lovvvvved Halloween! As a child, I remember when my parents would dress up with me and we had a great time trick-or-treating together. My most memorable Halloween was when my dad wore a dress! I was Pippi Longstocking that year, and my Mom wore overalls, and had straw in her teeth. I loved that my Mom was so creative with our costumes, and I've tried to carry that on with my girls.

  1. Wow, I can’t believe you don’t have more comments on this post! I love the Rainbow outfit! I have to have my sewing friend make it – thanks.

    1. The tutorials are posted, if they’re available. That one looks like it’s just photos for inspiration. Sorry!

  2. I have to say I came to this “knowing” what I wanted to see…(The rainbow) And NOWWWW I can’t decide which one I want to do. Haha. Thanks so much for this <3

  3. Hi there,
    I always love Halloween too and my most memorable Halloween was when my mom bought me my all time favorite strawberry shortcake costume complete with all accessories and I felt I was the luckiest kid in the world.

    Thanks for taking time to research on the top 50 Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids, the list is very helpful.

  4. Love the chocolate chip cookies! How cute is that to use them for seat cushions when you are done with the costume!!

  5. We got a pretty cheap tutu from that was black and yellow since we’re steeler’s fans. Last year we made a bumble bee costume from it, this year a black and yellow butterfly or fairy!

  6. Great Ideas. I’m making myself a Halloween costume as I’m a professional magician and children’s entertainer and I have lots Halloween shows coming up later this month. I’ll have to adapt one of these designs to make something for myself.

  7. Thank you for putting this list together. Bloggers like you often save me. My grandkids, neices and nephews will be glad I found you on Pinterest. Keep up the good work! Have a Happy and Spooky Halloween!

  8. DIY costumes are so much more fun than store-bought ones. You can do so much with make-up and some old clothes.

  9. I clicked on this article, when I saw the Raggedy Ann costume, because I pinned this image a year ago and thought you might have more cute costumes up my alley. Love these ideas! I noticed that your Raggedy Ann pic is credited to the wrong person, though.
