5 No-sew Homemade Halloween Costumes For Kids

Infants and toddlers don’t really mind how you dress them up and you can select from a wide range of costumes. The most favored are bugs and flowers. You get cute little single piece outfits that form the body of the bug like a ladybug, glow worm, a honeybee, an ant or even a butterfly or snail. As an accessory, you will also get antenna for each of the bugs as a cap or as a hair band attachment. All of the accessories are well padded so you can be rest assured that your babies are safe and will not be able to hurt themselves.

Using the ideas you’ve read here, you may be able to develop your own cheap Halloween costumes for kids. You could make a grim reaper, princess, ninja, American Indian, cowboy/cowgirl or soldier, just to name a few. Be sure to check out your local dollar stores for ideas. Dollar Tree has lots of accessories you can pull together for an outfit. Dollar General and Family Dollar have some inexpensive costumes, and they also have accessories so you can make your own.

Last but not least, the nerd costume. This is a Halloween costume that might be made out of very simple items.

The Mike Jordan Outfit: Dress them up like a famous athlete, movie star or famous positive role model that they admire. This is fun to do as a group, because then the kids can help and encourage each other. A group of motivated kids can do a great job of turning this into a successful event. Get each child to find a cool saying, quote or song lyric from the star written on their treat bag.

What else could a little girl want than to be a fairy or a princess? Or both – a fairy princess. Let’s begin first with princesses. Just like a miniature prom, the dress IS everything. If the little girl doesn’t feel the dress up to par then she isn’t going to feel the role of princess. Sure, you could go out, buy one of those dressup costumes that any store with toys has in the girls toy section, buy a beautiful tiara, elegant shoes and even a scepter to finish the ensemble. But some of the accessories to the dress (on average I’ve found the dresses cost around USD) are a tad extreme for so little a material. However, there are alternatives to the accessories that cost a great deal less.

Little boys love to imitate big boys. The dollar store has hard hats and other construction items for boys. Purchase a cheap tool belt with plastic tools and a yellow hard hat.

For girls, they can dress up as Wilma or Betty and if a child dresses like the first of the two then they need only dye their head red or wear a red wig unless they are a natural red head. Slap on a necklace of pearls with the costume and they’ll look like a mini-Wilma and no necklace is even needed for Betty.
