EASY Last Minute Halloween Costumes!
We’ve all been there. It’s two days before Halloween, and you don’t have a costume for yourself let alone your kids. Each year you promise yourself you’ll get your act together and buy costumes a month ahead.
You can stop stressing. I’ve gone ahead and done the work for you! Listed below I’ve gathered fun, simple DIY costumes for the whole family! Some of the costumes require a little crafting, while others can be created from items you already have in your closet!
Rosie the Riveter:
If you’re a fierce, independent woman, there’s no better way to show it than with the Rosie the Riveter costume. Plus, it’s so easy! All you need is a pair of jeans, a denim shirt/jacket and a red bandana.
1920’s Flapper: Everyone knows the swinging 1920’s was great time to be alive. The fashion was fun and classy. You can instantly become a Flapper as well with a little black dress, a boa, and a headband.
Mary Poppins: Mary Poppins is a classic, and her uniform is easy to recreate. All you need is a black pencil skirt, white button down, black pumps, a pillbox hat and an umbrella.
