Baby Aerobics Instructor Costume

Holy cuteness! This easy baby aerobics instructor outfit looks like an easy DIY to put together and I promise, it will be a memorable costume. Create a baby headband from a thrift store t-shirt, cut the bottoms off of a pair of socks to create baby leggings, and use your baby’s onsie and leggings to complete the look. This mom created an adorable boombox out of felt to complete the look.  (via Homemade By Jill)

Book Fairy Costume

A couple of hardback books from your local thrift shop can be transformed into a unique and adorable book fairy costume. Using a hot glue gun, book pages, and the covers of the books to create your fairy wings you can create an entire costume from simply rolling paper for an adorable skirt! You will love this one (via Lilliedale)

Mary Poppins & Bert Couple Costume

Couple costumes can be challenging, but with few things from your closet and a little help from the local thrift shop, it can be easy to create your look for less. My husband & I created this costume for less than $20 and had an absolute blast putting it together.

I think my favorite accessory that I am wearing is my husband’s bow tie from a prom we attended together. I found it in a box of mementos from our high school days and it was a fun memory to wear at the annual Halloween costume party. (via MomAdvice)

Homemade Redbox Costume

I had to laugh at this adorable Redbox costume that this family created! The Redbox costume was created using spray paint, a box, and snagging some of the Redbox images from Google. I absolutely love this idea and it cost the family less than $5 to create. The best part is that the whole family can jump in on the creating.  (Coolest Homemade Costumes)

The best part about the, “Will Work 4 Candy Costume,” is that you need not buy any supplies at all to create this look.
