Halloween Costumes For Non-DIY Moms

I can’t cut. I can’t sew. I’m not patient. I am not DIY, but I can’t stomach paying $50+ for a cheap polyester Halloween costume for my kids. I want them to be something fun and special without breaking the bank or having to learn how to sew from YouTube.


Somehow major moments like this tend to sneak up on moms. Don’t fall behind, girl! Country Living has put together the top 90 homemade Halloween costumes. Here are my favorites:

Paint Brush
A quick trip to Michael’s and  will get you everything you need for this fun costume.

Yarn + Scissors + Tiny Roar and boom, you’ve got the cutest little lion!

Take your child’s white sweatsuit to the next level by adding colored yard, cardboard, felt and ribbon, turning them into their favorite magical creature.
