Easy (and funny) DIY Costume Ideas

It’s the time of year when the holidays start creeping up on us and you might find yourself scrambling for a costume last minute for a party or other event. Well I have some easy (and funny) DIY costumes for you!

Last year my oldest dressed up as a stick figure and he got a ton of comments on it. Some white clothes, electrical tape, a paper plate, markers and some string is all you need.

I love Charlie Brown and I love how easy it is to pull together this costume

If you’re a fan of funny costumes or costumes that strike a conversation how about an aircraft carrier?

or the 7 Seas?!

or my favorite – a ceiling fan! You could play this one up with more fan apparel. Once he “got” it this was my almost 11 year olds favorite too.

I hope these have helped kick start your imagination!

  1. Genius, seriously genius. I think the stick figure needs to happen in the near future for family costumes. Such a great inexpensive idea, and wins huge points for originality.

  2. That Charlie Brown and Snoopy was the cutest! Halloween is coming and I love to have a party in my backyard where kids can wear there costumes, looting candies and taking pictures in the photobooth with Halloween signs and props.
