Store bought costumes can be expensive and after the holiday is over, they just become clutter. This year, be creative, environmentally friendly, and budget friendly and make your own!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Basket of dirty laundry: Dress in sweats or tights (depending on the weather and where you will be wearing the costume.) Cut the bottom of a thin laundry basket so it can go over your head and fits on your hips. Then fill it with clothes!
Skunk: Wear black sweats with and use white tape to paint a stripe down your back. Use face paint as desired.
Tourist: Hawaiian shirt, camera, cargo shorts, lai, flip flops.
Hippie: Tie dye tee, jeans (as baggy as possible) and braided hair. (Super easy!)
Miss America: Old bridesmaid or prom dress, tiara, home made sash, gloves and shoes.
