Halloween Costumes on a Budget

Halloween is right around the corner! It’s fun watching kids get all excited in their costumes to go trick-or-treating. Halloween costumes have a track record of being expensive though. Here are some tips to get you started on some quick, creative, and inexpensive costumes this Halloween.

1. Thrift stores and dollar stores are your friends

Easily make this Minion costume with thrift and dollar store finds. Find some overalls and yellow shirt at a thrift store (if you don’t have them already). For the minion goggles, either buy some protective goggles at the dollar store and add silver rings or make a beanie with items from the craft store. (See Halloween Pinterest board for tutorial)

2. Use clothes that you already have in the costume

Any Disney princess lovers in the family? A great way to save money on a princess costume is begin with a dress, skirt, or tutu you already have! Add with accessories from the dollar and craft stores.

Maybe your home is filled with superheros! A superhero costume can easily be made with clothes from home. Start with plain, solid color shirt and pants (pajamas could even work!). Click this pin to read how to make your own cape and superhero accessories!


No need to stress over Halloween costumes. The point is to have fun with friends and family while stocking up on sweet treats. Whatever you decide to do as a costume, get the kids involved in the creation!
