No Tricks, All Treat!
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. Am I going to buy something which unfortunately costs a lot or have a DIY costume using recycled materials? Practically and at less cost, making a DIY Halloween costume is the best option. 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.
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.
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. I upcycle an old mini black dress into her costume. The wings are made of cardboard covered with black cartolina paper shaped into tiny feathers. As for her staff, I used a branch of a tree, covered it with black electrical tape and topped a light up bouncy ball. 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.
Making all of these needs a lot of time and effort, but it makes me happy and proud when she won the best costume prize. Maybe because the judges were bewitched of my daughter’s cuteness in her Maleficent Halloween OOTD.
Pokemon Ball Costume
Let’s Go, Pikachu! It was all treat day at Robinsons Mall years ago when my daughter attended Halloween event for the third time (same year with her Maleficent costume) wearing cute DIY Pokemon Ball costume. The Poke Ball prop is made of recycled cardboard material covered with white and red colored paper. I added a string to make it easy to wear.
These DIY Halloween costume ideas for kids are absolutely helpful you in deciding what to wear for the celebration.
