Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it is so much fun celebrating as a family with my husband Little Boo now. While Halloween 2020 will look a lot different due to COVID-19, we went all out for Halloween month in 2019. We created 19 different DIY Halloween costumes over the month of October and Little Boo chose one to wear to a nursing home Halloween event and another to wear to our city’s Main Street Halloween event that year. Here is the selection of those Halloween costumes that we made by hand using things we had at home like old shirts, toys, and cardboard boxes.

DIY Ninja Turtle Shell
Unity, togetherness, and creativity are just a few of the principles to celebrate during Kwanzaa — and all year round. Lift the flaps to discover the true meaning and spirit of Kwanzaa.
Superhero T-shirt Cape
If you have an oversized shirt, you can create a cape! This was an easy DIY, and the graphic tee underneath gave Little Boo a stylish Clark Kent look.
DIY Yarn Lion Mane
I found this easy DIY on Pinterest, and I had these colors in my yarn drawer already, so it was an easy one to make!
Jasper from Butterbean’s Cafe
Little Boo fell in love with the show Butterbean’s Cafe when it first came out on Nickelodeon in 2019, and his favorite character was Jasper – the speed fairy who could fly the fastest.
DIY Harry Potter Costume
This wasn’t Little Boo’s first time being Harry Potter for Halloween. Two years prior, I made him a cloak, scarf, and tie in Gryffindor colors. He outgrew the cloak, but the tie and scarf were still useful. I printed and laminated a Gryffindor shield and pinned it to his cloak, he used my (now our) wand, some HP glasses he’s had for a while, and voila! Add a makeup scar and I have a little Harry Potter.
Monster Face Paint
Face paint is always an easy option to create a new costume! Here’s a natural face paint kit to keep it clean and non-toxic.
This was a perfect last minute costume DIY. I purchased the “Incredibles” shirt at a thrift store and made the mask and superhero outer underwear from felt.
