DIY Halloween costumes (ideas)

(Last Updated On: June 25, 2023)

Are you tired of spending a fortune on Halloween costumes that only get worn once a year?

Fear not, my fellow Halloween enthusiasts, because DIY costumes are here to save the day (or the night, rather).

Not only are DIY costumes budget-friendly, but they also give you the opportunity to flex your creativity and come up with something truly unique and one-of-a-kind.

Plus, you’ll earn major brownie points for being the most original costume at the party.

Here are a few fun and cheeky DIY costume ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

Bag of jelly beans

Grab a clear trash bag, fill it with colorful balloons, and tie it off with a ribbon. Add a label that says “Jelly Beans” and voila! You’re now a walking, talking bag of sweets.

Cereal killer

Dress up as a serial killer (think black hoodie and fake blood), but add a box of cereal to the mix. Glue plastic knives, scissors, and other sharp objects to the box, and you’ve now transformed into a “cereal killer.”

Ceiling fan

Wear a shirt that says “Ceiling” and carry around a pom-pom or a sign that says “Go, Ceiling!” You’re now a ceiling fan (get it?).

Smart cookie

Dress up as a cookie (or just wear a cookie costume), and add some nerdy glasses and a graduation cap. You’re now a smart cookie (literally).


Wear a shirt that says “Selfie,” and carry around a picture frame. You’re now a walking, talking selfie.

These are just a few ideas to get you started, but the possibilities are endless. So grab your glue gun, raid your closet and craft drawer, and get ready to make some DIY Halloween magic.

Who knows, you might even inspire others to join in on the DIY fun!
