DIY Homemade Halloween Costumes for Kids

Let me guess, your kids love Halloween. And why shouldn’t they? They dress up in fun costumes and get more candy in one night than they see in the rest of the year combined. Of course, your kids probably aren’t aware of how expensive those cheap plastic costumes can be. This Halloween, why not make your own? Sure, it’s a bigger time investment than just buying a pre-made one, but it will likely be better quality and will certainly be a great parent/child bonding project!

Below are five DIY Halloween costumes from around the internet of varying time-commitment levels.
