Homemade Halloween Costume Inspirations

We will most definitely be making our Halloween costumes this year.  I have come across so many adorable ideas over the past months.  Here are some of the ideas and resources I've found online that I love.  Of course now I am in awe of so many I don't know how on earth we will narrow it down to three!  I hope you find some inspiring ideas here too!

There are some VERY creative people out there!
I cannot wait to see what you are dressing your children in this Halloween.  Now... time to get to work on those costumes!!


  1. oh my goodness there are so many absolutely adorable I'm kind of in love with the book fairy and may need to try and convince my hubby to be charcters from the Lego Potter games! Love it

  2. WOW! I love so many of these! My daughter went through phases last year of first wanting to be a pirate princess then a pumpkin and finally a giraffe (what?) a pink and purple giraffe. One purple jump suit with pink felt spots all over and voila! The cutest little giraffe you've ever seen. Of course the day of she went through a "I want to be Frankenstein" moment.....giraffe it is sweetie. Thanks for the great list!

  3. Wow!!! Lovely collections! Love all the costumes and kids are too cute :)

  4. These are awesome. I especially love family ones, but I can't seem to get my kids to coordinate any more. I love homemade costumes over the store bought ones. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Love that little UP one!!! These are so cute!

  6. So Cute! I don't know how I would choose.

  7. Everyone hope they have a good time in Halloween,but I think you must have a Halloween costume firstly ~~~

  8. Homemade is actually my preference when it comes to making a Halloween costume. Just this year I'm making a lion costume for my kid, and everything is already set up. It just needs some time to get done. It's going to look great.

  9. It's really a great post


I LOVE hearing from you! Your feedback means so much to me. Thanks for your comments!
