Free DIY Halloween Costume Ideas


What are you going to be for Halloween?  Have you even thought about it yet? I recently read that the average person spends just a little bit under $100 on Halloween!  $100! Maybe it’s just me, but that seems crazy! I don’t have any interest in spending that much this year so I am doing some major research trying to figure out some free costumes that my family and I can don this year.  Here are some of my favorites.

FREE DIY Costumes


  • Facebook. That’s it.  I have discovered the world’s cheapest and easiest costume!  Simply put on a blue shirt and write the word book on your face and Voila!  You have just become Facebook!
  • Cat.  Draw on some cat’s eye makeup and a couple of whiskers and you have just become a cat, my friends.  It also helps to wear a black outfit to complete the look. Of course you can always buy a cute cat’s ears headband from the dollar store to add to the effect, but it is unnecessary. 
  • Hawaiian Tourist.  You have to have a hawaiian shirt buried in your closet somewhere, am I right?  Break it out and pair it with some khaki shorts and you are the quintessential Hawaiian tourist!
  • 50 Shades of Grey.  Head on over to your nearest store that sells paint (Home Depot, Walmart, Lowes, etc.). Grab a bunch of paint color swatches and tape them to your shirt.  Go with all greys and all of the sudden you are 50 shades of grey!


You guys, there are so many cheap and free DIY costume ideas that there is literally no reason for anyone to spend a huge amount on an expensive, elaborate costume for you or anyone in your family this Halloween.
