MT. PLEASANT, Mich. -- October is fast approaching, and that means Halloween and trick-or-treating! Although before your little ghosts and goblins hit the streets to snag some sweet treats, they're going to need an awesome costume! While you could head to the department store to choose one, you'd be surprised just what you can create yourself with a quick trip to the craft store, or even with stuff you might already have around the house!
From Graff Mt. Pleasant, here are five spooktacular DIY Halloween costumes for kids that are sure to turn some heads!
1. WATERCOLOR PAINT TRAY
The brush is made out of a pool noodle! Can you beat that?
2. NO-SEW GHOST
You can't go wrong with a classic ghost costume for Halloween! This one is equally darling on both children and babies, and the white fleece body and hat are great to keep them warm if the big night turns out to be a chilly one. The best part? No sewing required!
Cut-up some old t-shirts, add some fabric glue, and you've got the recipe for a hootin' good costume!
Get step-by-step instructions here.
All you need are some matching tights, cotton stuffing, and some double stick tape or glue - and your child is transformed into an adorable sea creature!
With some cardboard, a broom handle, and some fleece - your kid can be an awesome lumberjack! On top of that, the fleece beard doubles as a great face warmer if it's cold on Halloween night!
