It may not officially be fall just yet, but now that the summer vacations are over and all the kids are back in school, you can’t go into a store without seeing Halloween costumes.  While the store bought costumes are certainly cute, there are only so many of them…. after a while all the kids start picking out the same ones.  So we thought we’d get a list together of some of the cutest costumes that you can make yourself!  They’re cheaper, unique, and your kids can even help with some of the assembly which makes it extra fun (or frustrating if you’re a control freak like me, lol).  So pick out your favorite and start whipping up your own unique DIY kid’s Halloween costumes!

funny-costume-Dwight-Schrute-kid-OfficeOh you can just get a super awesome costume of Dwight Schrute from The Office at the costume store.  FALSE.  You can’t.  Because it’s too cool.  What you CAN do is make it yourself and have a kid wearing a costume that makes every adult tell you that your kid is the coolest ever.

Elsa from Frozen

Napoleon & Kip

napoleon_dynamite_family2Ok, so Napoleon Dynamite came out years ago, but that doesn’t make it less great.   Do you know what’s better than dressing your kid up as Napoleon?  Dressing one kid up as Napoleon and the other up as Kip.  That’s what.

Sushi Baby

Picture 26Honestly, do I even need to say anything?  The kid is sushi.  Sushi.  He’s got a soy sauce hat.  I mean COME ON.  This kid is so cool.

Pippi Longstockings

ss_PippiLongstockingIs there a girl out there who’s more amazing that Pippi Longstockings?  She can lift a horse above her head and her braids defy gravity!  That is OUTSTANDING!  This seems like a pretty easy costume to replicate, especially with some florist wire in the braids to give them the Pippi flip.

Clark Kent / Superman
