It’s that time of year again – the leaves are falling, the air is cooling off, and soon, little ghosts and goblins will be roaming the streets on Halloween night. It’s always exciting for kids and adults alike to come up with a new costume every Halloween, but face it -- costumes can be expensive! You could easily drop $50 or more on a store-bought costume! Did you know that DIY Halloween costume alternatives won’t cost nearly as much, and can be fun to make with your kids?
The easiest way to avoiding paying too much for a store-bought costume is to craft your own. An inexpensive DIY Halloween costume doesn’t have to be complicated and time-consuming. A good way to prime the creative juices is to browse store-bought costumes then find a way to recreate the idea at home. Here are some tips to get you started:
If you really love a good store-bought costume, plan ahead for next year. Halloween merchandise usually goes on sale for 50% off the day after Halloween. If you wait a few more weeks, you can get as much as 75-90% off, and you’re set for next year!
Kids (and adults alike!) look forward to Halloween all month long. With a little creativity, you can easily win the costume contest without spending a dime. And you’ll surely remember that costume longer than that cheap-but-expensive plastic mask and cape.
