Homemade Costumes

My mom used to make all of our costumes. We had the BEST costumes. It was either homemade or those horrible plastic shirts with a mask. I was very thankful for my homemade costumes. Store bought costumes are SO much better now but I still love a good homemade costume. Here are some that I’ve seen and loved from around the internet!

A perfect army man from Wild Ink Press

Scuba accessories from Real Simple

DIY Skeletons from Finley and Oliver

and airplane/pilot at Oh Happy Day

or a good old LEGO from Country Living

  1. I am dying over the army guy! AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for sharing my little skeletons, Allison. Such a treat to see them here. 🙂

  2. These are adorable! I've always envied well-made homemade costumes. I've never attempted one because I'm always worried it won't turn out well.
