48 DIY Costumes for Halloween

Enjoy this list of DIY costumes that are perfect for Halloween or playing dress up. My kids don’t need an excuse to imagine and dress up.

I love Halloween, and I love making costumes. I’ve made costumes for my kids every single year, but only some of those years had actual tutorials to follow. Here’s a list of all the easy DIY costumes I’ve made that you can also make!

Some are sewn and some are no-sew. Some are classic Halloween characters and some are characters from books or movies.

Why Make DIY Costumes?

I love to make DIY costumes for my kids for lots of different reasons. I love that I can make something unique that they want and that they’ll love. We live in a cold area so I always have to plan costumes to be warm so that they don’t have to wear a jacket or coat over it.

I almost always save money by reusing fabric and clothing from my stash and around our home, and I have found that reusing clothing saves me time.

Homemade DIY costumes use stronger and more durable fabric that will last through months and years of dress up and play time. I love that the costumes will last longer than one night of trick-or-treating.
