I am usually a “buy my costume off amazon” kind of gal but this year I challenged myself to step outside my comfort zone and try some DIY toddler halloween costumes.

I was so surprised with how easy they were to make, how little money they cost and how much fun I would have!

Here are some easy DIY costumes I made for Hazel with tutorials. I hope this brings you a tiny bit of inspiration and try to make your own fun DIY toddler halloween costumes this year.


This costume is about as simple as it gets. I used a few sheets of construction paper. Cut out leaves (long and skinny work best) and glued them to a toilet paper roll. Once it was dry I used my hot glue gun to glue two flaps to a headband. Wear a cute yellow dress (this one is from and you are done. I want to steal this idea for myself, it would be perfect for a work party.

Black dress, a little headband with some construction paper, fun tights and sticks from your yard. That is it. Simple is the name of this game and this easy witch costume is as easy as it gets.

DIY Astronaut Costume

This astronaut costume took a little more effort compared to the other two but totally worth it in the end. Here is what you need:

1.white clothes

2. black electrical tape

3. patches (i got mine here)

4. empty water bottles, spray paint and feathers for the boosters

5. glue gun

I spray painted the water bottles and then glued them together. I glued the feathers on the inside to look like fire and two rubber bands at the top for arm holes.

I used the electrical tape to create the parts of the spacesuit and attached the patches with sticky adhesive.

These moccasin were a cute little touch, you can buy them here.

I used straw from an old Hawaiian hula skirt I had and stuffed it under one of my daughters straw hats. Overalls from her closet and a little facepaint using lipstick and eyeliner and we were done. I love this cute little scarecrow. Easiest DIY toddler halloween costume yet!

DIY Gumball machine Costume

I used my glue gun to attach the pompoms to a paper plate. I also glued a few to a plain headband. After that, I wrote $0.25 on a piece of black construction paper and used adhesive stickers to attach it to her dress. I don’t think she realizes that she is dressed as candy otherwise she would have a totally different reaction.
