DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

 

Where does Halloween originate from?

Many people may not know the origin of Halloween, so we’ll have a quick look at it.

 

The origins are unclear, but many sources believe that ancient Celtic Druids celebrated Samhain on October 31st to mark the end of harvest and summer with a festival where they would light bonfires and dress up in costumes.

 

They believed that ghosts or spirits would come out from hiding for this night only!

Who celebrates Halloween?

 

Halloween is celebrated all around the world, most notably in America.

 

In America, it’s considered a “scary” holiday where children dress up and go trick-or-treating for candy from door to door on Halloween night.

 

It is also observed by people in the UK, Canada, and Ireland.

 

 

What do I need for a DIY Halloween costume?

 

This depends on the costume. However, my best tip is to come up with your idea and put a twist on it repurposing items you already own or searching up thrift shops like Goodwill or Salvation Army while striving for a unique look.

 

To create DIY Halloween costumes, you will need:

 

– A costume idea

– Materials (e.g. Fabric, paint)

– Time and creativity!

 

What type of DIY costumes can I make?

 

You can make DIY Halloween costumes from literally anything in your home or the local shops around you.

 

For example, you could use a sheet as an easy ghost costume or take inspiration from Disney characters with some blue fabric paints on it.

 

If you’re feeling lazy then there are plenty of youtube tutorials available that have already done all the hard work for you so just follow those instructions instead!

 

We’re showcasing 130+ DIY Halloween Costumes to give you some ideas 🙂 None of these items cost a lot, so it’s a great DIY for those on a budget!
