50 DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

If you are anything like me, you walk around aimlessly in the party stores year after year looking for the perfect costume for your little monster. When you finally find one that will do, you look down at the price tag and GASP. Two little pieces of fabric barely sewn together, a little mask held together by string
 and a couple of staples = $50.  Yep, we think that's fair. 
Well, I've got news for ya! You could probably make the same thing or something EVEN cuter at home with everyday household items and a whole lot less money. So it will take a little time to piece it all together, but that's the fun of Halloween isn't it?  You and your little goblin can do this together!  Start a new tradition!
Here ya go:
