“A person should always choose a costume which is in direct contrast to her own personality.”

– Lucy VanPelt “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and one that I look forward to every year. It is a holiday full of fun and creativity, where kids and adults alike take their imaginations to the limit and create wonderfully fanciful costumes. Whether you have your costume already planned for this year, or you are scrambling and trying to come up with something last minute, here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Headbands by Martha Stewart

Crayon costumes from Parents Magazine.


Cardboard Box Giraffe from AllYou Magazine.


Paper Bag Vest & Binoculars – Real Simple Magazine.


 Cardboard Space Creations from Martha Stewart


Made from plastic soda bottles. From the blog – Been There, Pinned That.

As you can see, costumes don’t have to cost a fortune or take hours to create. With a little ingenuity and everyday supplies that you already have laying around your house, you can create magic.
