Dress Up Your Pumpkin

Hey crafty mama! Instead of buying a ready-made Halloween costume for your little ghoul, why not try your hand at a little DIY? Check out these creative baby Halloween costume ideas from HGTV.com.

Let's face it, Halloween costumes for babies can be pricey. With all the other baby gear you have to buy right now, coughing up another $50 for a Halloween costume your baby will only wear once doesn't exactly sound appealing. Plus, all the frills and lace on that pricey princess costume might look super cute, but your baby will probably only let you keep it on long enough to snap a picture before she wants out of the stuffy outfit.

Instead of buying a ready-made Halloween costume, consider making one out of a few materials you probably have on hand at home anyways.

We're loving these DIY Halloween costume projects from HGTV's Halloween Ideas center. Here are a few of our favorites:


Matching mom and baby kangaroo costume

Put your Moby wrap to use by turning it into a kangaroo costume for both you and baby. Customize beanies with basic felt colors and you have a Halloween costume that's perfect for you and baby on the go. This idea works especially well for moms who plan to take older kids trick-or-treating and don't want to haul around a baby stroller.
