70 homemade, easy and low-budget Halloween costume designs

When the Halloween party knocks on our doors, all we have to do is greet him with a big smile and good humor. And, if you’re one of the folks who are going to celebrate October 31st, you will definitely need some good makeup and an original disguise. For the latter, no need to break the bank with a super expensive costume. You can just look forward to a homemade Halloween costume. A breath of inspiration in the gallery below.

Creating your own homemade Halloween costume has never been so easy

Transform into a bird with fairy wings

DIY Costume No.1 Bird costume with cardboard wings by curbly


  • cardboard
  • colored paper sheets
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon
  • cutter
  • marker pen
  • paint and brush (for the mask)

Steps to follow:

To make the wings

  1. Draw two identical wings on the cardboard and cut them out with the craft knife. (Wing measurements vary depending on person’s height.)
  2. Then draw a leaf. We’ll use it as a template for the feathers. (In this tutorial we have created two types of leaves with different sizes for a more natural effect).
  3. Cut out feathers of different colors from the colored paper. We’re going to use the feathers to cover the front and back of each wing. So you will need a lot of feathers.
  4. Then we start to glue the feathers on the wings. If necessary, cut off the excess paper.
  5. Now you have to stick a ribbon on each wing (long enough to go around the arm and shoulder).

To make the mask

Draw a mask on the cardboard and cut it out. (If needed, you can use a template.) For a 3D effect, cut out a triangle (for the mouthpiece). Fold it in thirds and glue the two edges of the outer triangles. Stick the beak on the mask.

DIY Costume No.2 Wizard of Oz Pewter Man Costume by apumpkinandaprincess


  • cardboard box
  • silver adhesive tape
  • silver spray paint
  • buttons
  • silver fabric
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • oil funnel
  • plastic ax
  • gray blouse and pants
  • silver face paint


  1. To make the costume, we start by cutting the top of the cardboard box. Then you have to bend the corners of the box to give it a circular shape. (You can use some scotch tape to help. A few layers of duct tape will make the cardboard stronger).
  2. Then, from the removed piece of cardboard, cut out a circle larger than the diameter of the costume..
  3. On the cardboard body, cut two holes for the arms.
  4. Glue the circle on the upper body.
  5. Glue buttons in the center of the costume.
  6. Apply a few coats of silver paint to the costume. Let dry well.
  7. To make a collar of the costume, fold the silver fabric in half and glue the edges to the circle at the top.
  8. If you want, you can stick a heart-shaped sticker on the left part of the costume.
  9. Tie a rubber band over the funnel to make the hat. Paint the hat and the ax in silver.

DIY Costume No.4 Pineapple design kids costume by deliacreates

Tips for making the hat: cut a cardboard circle and cover it with yellow fabric. Cut out green fabric leaves and glue them on the circle. Add an elastic to the hat.

DIY Costume No.5 Dbudget deer costume by themerrythought


  • a headband
  • aluminum foil
  • a plaster band
  • brown felt fabric
  • white faux fur
  • hot glue gun
  • paint and brush
  • foam board
  • wood grain scrapbooking paper

To make this deer tiara, we start by forming the two horns of the deer from the aluminum foil. Cover the horns with a few pieces of plaster tape following the directions on the package. Leave to dry. To make the ears, cut two sheets of the brown felt fabric. Glue a little faux fur on the inside of each ear. Once the plaster has dried, paint the horns in the desired color. Glue the ears to the headband.

Glue the wooden scrapbooking paper onto the foam board using the mod podge. Let dry well and cut a piece in the shape of a plate. Cut a hole for your neck.
