3 Non-Scary DIY Halloween Costumes That Are Super-Easy to Make
Easy DIY Halloween costumes? Yes, please! These fun, easy Halloween costumes won’t break the bank, won’t take too much time to make, and you don’t need to damage your clothes to make these simple DIY Halloween costumes.
If you love Halloween as much as I do, you’ll want to learn how to make these Halloween costumes you can make in minutes. Perfect for kids, teens, or anyone that doesn’t want to make a scary Halloween costume. Let’s get started making these fun Halloween costumes.
Tools and materials:
- Your own clothes
- Your own well-fitting black dress
- White duct tape
- White adhesive felt
- Circular object (like a ribbon spool)
1. Make the circles
Trace 7 circles on the adhesive felt. Cut them out.
2. Attach the circles
Lay the circles on the dress to determine the best arrangement for you. Once you’ve found the best layout, peel off the adhesive back and attach to the dress. If you want to keep this look permanently, you can use fabric glue.
3. Making the line
Cut a piece of duct tape to fit your waist and attach to the dress from one side seam to the other.
If you have a white belt, you could wear that instead of the duct tape. The best part of this costume besides how cute it looks is that you can remove the domino pieces and wear the dress again.
“God is Woman” Ariana-Grande-inspired look
- Nude tube dress
- Acrylic paint in purples and blues
- Brushes for paint and makeup
- Face paints
- Hair elastic
1. Paint the dress
Lay the dress on a flat surface. You can watch the music video for inspiration or just paint abstractly on the dress. Let the paint dry before wearing.
2. Do your hair
Part your hair to one side. Use a comb with hairspray to keep your hair in place and tame any flyaways. Pull your hair to the side where you parted it and make a simple braid. If you need to, use bobby pins in the back to keep your hair as flat as possible. Use a small clear hair elastic to secure the braid. Spray your hair to keep everything in place.
3. Do the makeup
Match the color of the face paints to the colors on the dress. Paint on your shoulders, arms, and face in an abstract way.
I used a light purple lipliner on my lips and filled it in with some of face paint.
If you’re artsy, this is a great costume for you.
- Exercise top
- Marathon printable
- Printable adhesive paper
- Medal: https://goo.gl/4dPCjK (about $5)
- Shorts or leggings
1. Print the marathon sticker
Download and print the marathon sticker on adhesive paper. Trim the edges.
2. Stick the printable on a workout top
Peel off the back and stick it to your workout top. I accessorized with athletic shorts, a workout headband, headphones, and a medal.
If you’re low-key about Halloween costumes, you can just print the label and wear it on any workout top for a fun easy costume without a lot of work.
- Black sweatshirt or t-shirt
- Gray felt - 2 pieces
- Fabric glue
- Red adhesive felt
- White face paint (optional)
- Eyeshadow (optional)
Who hasn’t ever felt a bit drained? You can make this easy costume to look like a dead battery.
1. Make the battery
Apply fabric glue to a full piece of gray felt. Attach on the front center of the top.
Cut a narrow piece of gray felt that is shorter than the square for the “battery” look. Attach with glue.
Cut a narrow and slightly shorter piece of the red adhesive felt and attach at the bottom of the larger square.
2. Match with makeup
To keep with the “dead” theme, apply white face paint all over your face, including your lips.
Apply a purplish, brownish eyeshadow on your eyelids and below your eyes to create hollows and shadows. Drag a brush through your hair to tease it a bit.
