I've put together over 35 ideas for easy DIY halloween costumes! These are so fun and super easy for the last minute! Follow me on TikTok for more ideas as well!
DIY SQUID GAME COSTUME: This is actually very easy! Just get some red sweatpants and a red sweatshirt, black gloves, and a black facemask and paint your symbol on the front using paint! For the player, you need all green clothing, a white undershirt, and add the players numbers to the jacket - EASY!
DIY KAREN COSTUME: Out favorite person, LOL! I made this last year as a last minute costume and it was EASY! Print out the phrase using a vinyl letter cutting machine, or you can buy iron on letters from the craft store. I reused a Starbucks cup and wrote the name Karen on it, and then put a Karen name tag! Would be cute to get a blonde bob wig too, but I didn't have time for that! This was a HUGE hit!
DIY Astronaut Costume (works for babies or adults) - All you need is a jumpsuit and either iron on patches or you can even print these images from the internet and attach them to the body suit using some spray adhesive if you are at the VERY last minute!
This Spaghetti and Parmesan Cheese is such a cute couples costume! This one takes a few more supplies, but a quick trip to your craft store and you will have everything!
DIY KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS/DECK OF CARDS: We did the King and Queen of Hearts costumes a few years ago and it's a big hit! If you have kids, you could also add them to your deck of cards as well! This only takes a white shirt, red or black fabric paint, and some printed off images to stencil! Takes about half a day to dry, so make sure you do it the day before you need it!
DIY PASTA COSTUMES: I couldn't find a source for this one, but it looks easy enough! Grab some felt fabric from the craft store and cut out the shapes, bind the middle of the pasta for a farfalle shape. Dress in all white or nude clothes!
This DIY Brawny Man costume is SO CUTE and So easy! All you need is a red and black flannel shirt and a mustache! Renate shared this on her Instagram and I loved it!

DIY FRUIT SALAD or INDIVIDUAL FRUITS: Me and my friends made this one a few years ago and it was easy and cheap! Grab the color shirt you need at the craft store or Walmart and some craft paint. We also used card-stock/poster-board to make the head toppers, and then attached them to a headband! This was an easy hit!
DIY BURGLAR ROBBER COSTUME: I made this a few years ago and it was simple! Wear black pants, a black and white striped shirt, a beanie, some gloves, and I made a face mask by cutting an old black shirt and then cutting eye holes in it! This was perfect, comfortable, and only took a few minutes!
DIY LEOPARD/CHEETAH/CAT COSTUME: Pick the animal and then dress in the print of the fur! Grab a cute ear headband and add some face paint to match the animal! This is EASY!
