We are HUGE fans of Halloween. Perhaps it's the smell of pumpkin spice in the air, or maybe it's the promise of candy at the end of the month. Either way, we'll take any excuse to dress up the kids in super cute costumes and take photos.
That said, we cringe at the thought of going into one of those Halloween stores and spending our hard-earned money on pieces of disposable clothing (at least until the end of season when we're all looking for some cheap dress up clothes for the kids to play with the rest of the year, right?). Granted, we also hate the idea of spending a ton of money on a higher-quality costume from a boutique shop. Because, let's be honest - if it's that nice, that outfit is getting sealed back up in whatever hang bag it came in and put into storage for safe keeping. Maybe our grand kids will wear it again, or not.
Wouldn't we all prefer to spend money on pieces of clothing that can serve multiple purposes? And that my friend is why we love DIY Halloween costumes for kids. Whether you're the type that likes to plan ahead, or you're a last minute kinda gal with limited time and supplies, Primary.com has colorful basics that serve as a wonderful baseline to make the perfect Halloween costume. In fact, we took four of their basic pieces to create these super simple and fun costumes.
