three diy halloween costume ideas

Getting a costume together can be the hardest part of Halloween and, as I get older, my costumes seem to become more and more last minute. Cut out the stress this year by finding your costume among items you already have in your closet with the following DIY ideas.

1.       Scarecrow

Costume:

  • Flannel shirt
  • Jeans
  • Straw hat
  • Fake long-stemmed sunflowers
  • Boots (extra points if you have hay sticking out of them)

Makeup:

  • Use eye liner to:
    • draw stitching marks from one cheek to the other, creating a large smile
    • color in the tip of your nose in a triangle shape
    • draw a straight, dotted line of stitching marks from the top of your forehead, down your nose, and to the bottom of your chin
    • draw exaggerated bottom lashes under your eyes
  • Wear bright lipstick and use the same lipstick shade to draw circles of bright blush

Hair:

  • Either wear it down in messy curls or in two large braids

 2. Party Animal

Costume:

  • Animal print top or dress
  • Cat ears (if you don’t own any, you can make them with a headband and pipe cleaners)
  • A party hat (if you don’t have one, you can make one out of cardstock and decorate it with markers and glitter)

Makeup:

  • Use eye liner to:
    • draw whiskers across both cheeks
    • color in the tip of your nose in a triangle shape
    • draw a thin line connecting the bottom of your nose to the top of your lip
  • Wear bright lipstick
  • Put on glitter eye shadow and fake eye lashes

Hair:

  • Either wear it up in a high pony tail or down in messy curls

 3.       Troll Doll

Costume:

  • Nude colored top
  • Bright colored shorts or tutu

Makeup:

  • Bright lipstick
  • Bright colored eye shadow

Hair:

  • Tease and gel your hair
  • Hold a water bottle (base down) on top of your head and gather your hair around the bottle
  • Place a ponytail holder around your hair and the cap
  • Then spray temporary colored hair dye in a bright color all over
