October has hit. Panic has set in at the Just Us Four house because the kids don’t have Halloween costumes picked out yet. Typically, we have our costumes in hand by early September so we get the pick of what is available. I am totally blaming PBK for this lapse in Halloween preparation since their catalog is usually what prompts me to order costumes. This year, I am thinking our late decisions on what to be will leave us with a lot less choices. So, like any good mom/blogger, I went cruising the interwebs and found 20 DIY Halloween costumes that could serve as back-ups…or first choices if DIY Halloween costumes are your thing!
In this collection, you’ll find something for adults and kids alike Even though so of them have been shown on adults, I think you could easily transform most of them into kid costumes too.
