Top 5 DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids 👻🎃

What a year 2020 has turned out to be! Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, but with trick-or-treating not being an option for us this year, we are doing our best to enjoy the parts of Halloween that are still doable!

Every September we start brainstorming costume ideas – I just love listening to all of the ideas my kids come up with (Ice Queen, Pink Dragon, and Zombie Police Officer to name a few). This year, I thought it would be fun to see what we could actually make ourselves! I DO love a DIY project and researching costume ideas on the internet is a rabbit hole I had a lot fun getting lost in! 🤣

Here are my TOP 5 DIY Kid Costumes for Halloween. Click on the image and you’ll be taken straight to the original post/content creator.

Hand Sanitizer 🧴🙌

Quite appropriate for 2020 is this hilarious hand sanitizer idea. Save the next Amazon delivery box and use your creativity to fashion a sanitizer bottle of your own. I think the top could be simply a cap instead of a pump too!

  1. These are fantastic, creative and don’t break the bank. My daughter is in a wheelchair so costumes were always a challenge (she’s 25 now) but one year we really nailed it. I found a black fabric with small, glittering silver stars all over it and draped that over the tray on her wheelchair. I put her in a colorful peasant top that I cut down to fit her using the excess to make a head scarf on which I sewed “coins” for a gypsy look. I added costume jewelry as well. The coolest part was the “crystal ball”. I bought an inexpensive frosted globe light fixture with a base, pulled out the wires and painted the base then added “jewels” and glued the globe to the base. Just before we began trick or treating I pulled out several glow sticks and stuck them inside so that the whole thing glowed. We found the spookiest colors were green and purple. Her costume was a hit and for once the wheelchair was a costume asset!
