Are you tired of trying to figure out what you or your child will be for halloween?  I have compiled a list of do it yourself and creative costumes with out breaking the bank.

Bag of Jelly Beans

As much as my son loves jelly beans, he would like this!

What you need to do: Get a clear trash bag, cut holes for your arms and legs to fit through. Print the nutritional facts on the back of the costume, just like what you see on the backs of candy bags. Fill up the bag with colored balloons for the jellybeans, and tie up the trash bag near your neck with a ribbon.

 

Ghost

All you need is an old white sheet! Just cut out holes for the eyes, maybe even do a mouth and put red marker around it for a girl ghost!

Waldo and Wenda

Great couples costume!

What you need to do: Get a red- and white-striped shirt, red and white cap, black- and round-rimmed glasses, and a pair of jeans. Wenda’s glasses are a little more triangular, and she also wears red- and white-striped socks, along with a denim skirt.

 

Tooth Fairy and Tooth

The tooth fairy costume might be the perfect outfit to wear when handing out candy to children.

What you need: Get a tutu, wings, tiara, and a wand with a cardboard cutout of a tooth stuck to the tip. For the tooth, you’ll need a bunch of pillows.

 

Home Improvement’s Wilson

Who didn’t watch Home Improvement in the 90s? This is such a clever costume that’s really easy and affordable to make. Watch out, you may be asked for advice!

What you need to do: Get popsicle sticks to make the fence, beige floppy hat, and a brown plaid shirt.

 

Grumpy Cat

This Grumpy Cat costume is for those who are in love with the world’s grumpiest meme.

What you need to do: Get white face paint, lots of brown eyeshadow, and a sponge for blending. Wear a white outfit, brown cat ears, and a brown tail.

 

Wednesday Addams

If you wear this costume, be prepared to talk about all things grim to everyone.

What you need to do: Get a long back dress with long sleeves and a white collar (collar can be made and sewn on). Braid your hair, and dust white powder onto your face and hands for pale skin.

 

Care Bears

Brighten up a Halloween party by opting for the Care Bear group costume.

What you need to do: Make ears out of colored paper or felt, pick a bear to emulate, then wear its requisite colors. Finally, make your Care Bear belly out of white paper or felt cloth and draw the symbol on with colored Sharpies.

 

Men in Black

This will be one costume others won’t forget . . . or will they?

What you need to do: Wear a black suit, put on shades, and you’ll have your top secret Men in Black costume.
