Last Minute DIY Costumes!

WE’VE GOT ONE WEEK TO GO, PEOPLE. Hopefully you’ve got your costume choices locked in at this point, but just in case you’re still scrambling to figure out what to wear for Halloween, I’ve put together a roundup of last minute DIY costume ideas for kids and for big people, too!

How cute are these? The crayons are my favorite.

  2. No-Sew Superhero Cape
  3. How to Make a Batman Mask
  4. Bumblebee Costume

And I am shamelessly including myself in the adult costumes here – many times we’ve had to throw together last minute costumes and make it work. Just last year we were Cheech & Chong! My favorite, though, was the year my wonderful sister and I decided to be Frankenberry and Count Chocula. We got busy with the construction paper and packaging tape and the result was hysterical!

I love When Life Gives You Lemons. I love the idea of just handing out lemons to strangers. Ha!
