Get ready to smile & also to take the kids Trick or Treating, because we’ve found you 52 fun and simple kids’ costume ideas that you can make.

Even if you are a beginner and have never made a costume before, you can feel confident that these projects will work well for you. We’ve also found you a nice variety – costumes for older children, toddlers and even your tiniest ones too! So whether you want to make an adorable lion costume or an elegant Cinderella or a not so spooky ghost, there are terrific ideas here to get you started.

Most costumes are no sew, so you don’t have to fuss and stress about sewing even a single stitch. We advise you to get started early, remember that lots of other families are going to be getting ready for Halloween too. To get the best DIY supplies in your area, you’ll find this easiest if you have a bit of time. This also helps you work on the costume in your free time without feeling “crunched” to do it in a super rush.



We always recommend that you ask your child what they want to be for Halloween and try to involved them if you can. Especially if you are making their costume, it can be a big disappointment for everyone if you work hard to create a terrific princess costume only to discover that your little one wanted to be a fairy or a clown! Happy DIY-ing and Happy Crafting!
