Nesting Doll Costume

This costume is one of my favorites. When I was a little girl I would play with Russian Nesting Dolls for hours. This costume gets even better if you have several girls in different sizes- ha! Don’t forget to add those bright circles on your cheeks as a finishing touch!

Wizard Costume

This costume is really easy and affordable. Once you have all the supplies, it can pulled together in a few minutes. It’s great if you’re short on time. Just make sure this little trick or treater doesn’t use any spells to steal all the candy! Click here to see all the costumes in our Homemade Halloween series.

Carmen Miranda Costume

Today we’re continuing our Homemade Halloween series with a costume inspired by Carmen Miranda. This is really easy to make from items you can find at a thrift store. We made the headdress using plastic fruit that we hot glued to a paper bowl. I think this costume would be a great idea for adults too. Find full instructions below and click here for the whole series.

Fall is here and Halloween season is upon us! Every year we do a Homemade Halloween costume series and this year I asked my friend Fergi Johnson to put it together. Most of the items can found at the drug store or thrift store so they are simple and affordable to put together.  P.S. – for more Homemade Halloween costume ideas click here!
