27 DIY Homemade Halloween Costume Ideas

I have been planning the kidlets’ Halloween costumes for MONTHS — deciding way back in FEBRUARY that we would play with a Dr. Seuss costume theme.  Or, more specifically . . . Barney Kneeknuckles (who will be a whopping 2.5 months at Halloween) will be the Cat in the Hat and the two older Kidlets will be Thing 1 and Thing 2.

It’s perfect.

Last year, for the Little Lady and Mr. Boy, I made the majority of their costumes — they were supposed to be Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy (from a children’s book series), but everyone thought Mr. Boy was a GIRL bumblebee!  Even with the ‘stache we drew on his face, we still heard (over and over), “What a cute little girl!”

(grumble, grumble, grumble)

With three costumes on the docket this Halloween, I have been utilizing Pinterest (the ultimate time-waster) to find tips, tricks and tutorials for Dr. Seuss costumes.  I picked up all of my supplies this weekend … now just to make everything!

    Great ideas!! I thing that most important is to be innovative and different and of course make you child feel SPECIAL. Because she-he is waiting a whole year for this day.:)

    I try to alternate making and buying for each kid each year. Last year I bought Q his Batman costume and made an adorable Strawberry Shortcake for Z. So this year, it was Q’s turn for the homemade ensemble…. but he wanted a store bought Wolverine (despite the fact that he has NEVER seen an X-Men show of any kind. Go figure.). So I’ll be making a Hello Kitty costume for Z. I think it is going to be super cute!

    You kid looks very lovely and cute as a bumblebee. The small girl in pink dress looks very adorable. All the costume ideas are very interesting and I may use one or two for my kids too.
