DIY Costume Ideas for a Thrifty Halloween
|All of these costume ideas come on a budget. What smart money costumes can you come up with? |
Who remembers the good old days when you could toss an old sheet over your head, cut out some eye holes and hit the neighborhood for trick-or-treating as a ghost?
We’re getting into the spirit of Halloween at Lincoln SavingsBank
! Our “treat” for you is a break from the regular financially-focused blog articles to share some do-it-yourself (DIY) costume ideas. We couldn’t completely abandon our financial roots - many of these ideas will have you looking great for less cost than buying a costume. Saving money and using your creative energy!
You may need basic craft skills for some of these costumes, but most of them are very easy to make.
- Bats are a staple of Halloween. This bat costume is easy if you have some black clothes and an old black umbrella lying around!
- It wouldn’t be Halloween without vampires! The costume is simple: slicked back hair, white face paint, a piece of black fabric for a cape and of course, some red paint or fake blood by the mouth.
- Did you love Legos as a kid? Bring back the blocks with this great costume!
Going out as a couple or partner this year for Halloween? We have some great ideas!
