You can quickly and easily whip up these five amazing kiddy costumes using supplies you probably already have on hand, plus a bit of creativity. These custom-made outfits also have more staying power than most flimsy store-bought costumes, and you'll love how cheap and quick they are to make. Follow the links below for full instructions:
We are doing homemade for my 2nd grader this year. She is going to be an angel. I had wings & a halo from a Christmas photo shoot I did a few years ago already. Then she is wearing a cute white top, leotard & a homemade tutu. I'm not fully finished with the total costume, I will post a final picture when I have her try on the entire outfit. Hopefully it comes out cute!
Other years we have done quick costumes from around the house as well.
One year my daughter was a doll. She took in old Ballet costume, maryjane shoes, put her hair in pigtails & made rosy cheeks out of blush. She looked adorable!
Another time, just for going out to stay warm, she wore leopard print footed pajamas with leopard ears & tail. She stayed warm & looked cute. I think I found the pj's at a thrift store on top of that & if you are really pressed for cash, you can find ears at Dollar Stores.
Fairies are also very easy to do with leotard, tutu, wings & a wand.
