DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is still more than two weeks away, but the tempting candy and spooky decorations have been on the shelves for nearly two months (did I really see Halloween decorations in August?!). Admittedly, I love the holiday but all the hype has me a little worried about what I’m going to dress up as.

This time last year, every element of my costume had been bought and assembled already (I handmade a polar bear costume for myself). This year is an entirely different story: I have nothing! I took a trip to a Halloween superstore, but didn’t find anything that jumped out at me. So I decided to go back to my DIY roots. I actually have more fun making my own costume anyway, as long as it’s creative but not too involved. Scour the web for ideas, I just had to share some of the most creative, no-stress costumes that I just love.
