Every day, Halloween just gets closer and closer, which means less time for all of you crafters to work on your homemade costumes. They’re time consuming, and the materials can be costly. You don’t have to panic, because the editors at FaveCrafts have been busy for months finding the most creative Halloween crafts that won’t break the bank. We’d like to show you some of our favorite Halloween costumes that are as inexpensive as they are amazing.
$5 No-Sew Candy Costume- Your little one will look so sweet in this colorful candy costume. It’s big, but gives your child freedom to move around, and the design is easy to follow so you can change the color scheme to represent your child’s favorite candy. This is a big hit with little girls, and it barely costs you anything! For all of you non-sewers, this is perfect for you!
Cute Popcorn Costume – If you really want to show off how creative you can be with your Halloween costumes, transform a family member into a delicious bag of popcorn. The colors are bright and eye-catching, and the design is totally original, but also comfortable. This goes to show that you don’t need to spend months stressing about an original look; this will be done in no time at all.
Eyeball Halloween Costume and Bag – For a crazy result that your kids will love, try using Tie-Dye. This project is a lot of fun to do with the whole family, and it encourages kids to take an active role in creating their own Halloween costumes. Best of all, the design can be as wacky and weird as your little one wants; instead of just picking out a pre-made costume, they get to express more of their creative ideas.
Shiver Me Timbers Pirate – Pirates have only gotten more popular as the years go on, so you’re going to need to get ahead of the game with your costume. This design can be used for pirates of all ages, and has easy steps to follow. Your family can become its own gang of swashbucklers with some of your own custom details too.
Crafty Pumpkin Costume – Working with fabric doesn’t have to be expensive or messy; this project is quick and free of hassle. The materials are very easy to find, and putting them together is just as simple. You could create this type of project for a family member of any age.
Retro Robot Costume – Here’s one craft about technology that’s easy for anyone to do. If you’re looking to make green, environmentally conscious costumes, you’ll love this design. Using a few objects from around the house and recyclable materials, you can put together a detailed-looking project with a sense of humor. The lights and candy slot make this a fun, interactive costume for your little trick-or-treater and the people they visit.
