PETS: DIY ET and Elliot costume

How cute are these DIY ET and Elliot costumes? It’s the purr-fect costume for pet lovers (pun intended)! All you need is a red hooded sweater and jeans. Fido just needs a white dish towel and a dangling Reeses Pieces packet from the basket. The basket is an important accessory too… just add bike handles to a black crate! Adorable!

KIDS: Wheelchair ice cream truck costume

I love that the dad of this kiddo turned his son’s wheelchair into an ice cream truck! The wheelchair ice cream truck costume is complete with ice cream cones, bunting on the window, and an ice cream hat for the little boy! The wheelchair costume even has a rear view mirror and custom decals!  This would certainly take some time, but totally doable with a little card board and paint!

KIDS: Aggie band costume

If you live in Texas and care about football at all, I’m sure you have heard of the Texas A&M Aggies! Quotes of a boy mom helped her sno dress up as an Aggie band member for Halloween! The Aggie band costume is perfect because you can utilize clothes you already have. Here’s what she said, “He’s wearing his own khaki pants, belt & shoes. The shirt is a modified Boy Scout shirt with free patches from the Corps uniform store and a homemade name tag & cording on his shoulder. The hat came from the local Military Depot. His toy trumpet is decorated with a felt flag I made myself!”

BABIES: DIY Harry Potter Costume

How cute is this baby DIY Harry Potter costume?! I love that you could use makeup to draw on the glasses since some kiddos don’t love accessories on their face. Other than that you’ll just need a yellow and red scarf and a white onesie with the family crest patch!

BABIES: Handmade doll costume

Hart + Sew crafted up the most adorable handmade wind up doll costume I’ve ever seen! The little doll is wearing a vintage dress and a headband. The wind up key is made out of a toilet paper roll, styrofoam ball, and cardboard cutout spray. She spray painted the wind up gold and used elastic bands around the babies arms to attach the key to the toilet paper roll. Oh and don’t forget the rosy cheeks!
