Halloween is one of the most awaited holiday kids look forward to, especially my daughter. She’s excited to dress up in costume and receive sweet treats. Well, it’s not just my daughter that is excited for Halloween, I am as well.

As a mom, one of the things I look forward to this holiday is thinking of what costume my kid should be wearing.

It might need creativity, time and effort, but once you see how happily dress up and look pretty cute the kids in your handmade love creation, it’s worth it.

Here are some DIY Halloween Costume Ideas for kids that I created for my daughter using old clothes and recycled materials.

Pumpkin Costume

This adorable costume is easy to make. You can buy fabric in orange color or use an old orange shirt to recreate a pumpkin costume. In this, I use alpha gene Gina pongee fabric, unused shoe lace, black felt cloth for pumpkin face. A little sewing of cloth on the sides and glued the pumpkin face, this cute DIY Pumpkin makes my daughter so adorable. This is her first ever Halloween. The cost? It’s less than one hundred pesos.

 

Maleficent Costume

Embrace your inner evil with this DIY Maleficent Costume I personally created for my daughter. Everything is handmade from signatured horned headpiece, staff and wings.

The horned headpiece is from her old headband, I just printed a horn pattern from the web, traced it in cardboard, then covered it with black ribbon, and glued it into the headband.  Continue reading

Because wearing shoes in a bigger size is not comfortable to wear. Buy shoes that are perfectly fit to your toddler size or at least have a half-inch allowance to give area for wearing it with socks or tights.
