Let me guess…you forgot to get a costume for a party tonight? Or your kid just now decided they DID want you to dress up for trick-or-treating? You can always blame Amazon and say they lost your delivery. 😉 Don’t worry, we’ve all been here. Under the pressure of having to be Rembrandt-level creative with zero time and brainpower to pull it off.
We got you covered. We found an awesome YouTube video with ideas for last-minute DIY costumes for just this stress-inducing occasion. Some of these getups you might have to run to Wal-Mart for. Or you might have the supplies in your house right now. Bonus! And the great thing about a DIY costume is that you can make it any size. So your kid doesn’t have to be the one without a costume. And YOU don’t have to cut up your favorite white sheets.
But, if you’re short on time, you’re probably not keen on sitting through a 18-minute YouTube video to find something that will work for you. We got you on covered on that too. Here’s a list breaking that video down. So you can scroll through quickly and see what might work for your family theme or party needs. Then just jump to that part of the video (link is below) to get a tutorial on making it a costume. And voila!
So, if you don’t want to brave the crowds of the local costume store (have you seen a Spirit Halloween on Halloween? It’s downright scary), or you need something specific that a prepackaged costume doesn’t provide, we got you covered. Now, if you forgot to get candy, well we can’t help you there.
At the end of the video below are ideas for five-minute Halloween crafts that are a lot of fun, if you need to distract the kiddos today while they wait for sunset.
