12 DIY Halloween Costume Ideas


Here at So Green Baby, we get super excited around Halloween.  Cardboard, hot glue, paint, old shirts and sweaters can become awesome do-it-yourself costumes. Remember to plan ahead and consider the weather when making your costume.  Make it extra roomy to fit over a winter coat if your spending lots of time outside. A quickly removable costume will help out with emergency bathroom breaks or diaper changes. Remember safety first, don’t impair vision or mobility.

Here are some ideas for those of you who are starting to feel extra crafty! Click on the images to learn how the costumes were made.
