Halloween is a time to let your creativity shine! I love making costumes, and creating things for my kids to wear. Growing up my mom created homemade Halloween costumes, and I think it was special to wear something crafted with love. Other crafters certainly appreciate the hours you spend putting together the final look!
It is always so fun to see what creative things people used to make their costumes. The possibilities are endless. I hope someday my kids will look back and have great memories of all the fun things we put together. Trick or Treat fellow crafters!
Put your thinking caps on to plan the perfect DIY costume and get ready for a fabulous Halloween! Hopefully this list of more than 30 ideas for homemade Halloween costumes will help!

We are also (still) loving these two homemade Halloween costumes our kids wore a few years ago. All you need to make both of these is paint and cardboard boxes!
The circular part of the train was made using a circular cement form found at Home Depot. You glue it all together and paint! To make the steam, use a wire hanger and cover it in quilting batting! It is such a fun memento to keep!
Who doesn’t love a Cabbage Patch Kid!? We had an entire collection growing up, but this real life version is ten times cuter!
I will admit I did not knit the cabbage patch doll hat, but I did paint the box. I bought the hat, and received many giggles and compliments! If you love to knit, this would be a super fun DIY for Halloween!
