Halloween is just a few weeks away, my friends! Are you ready? Are you planning on dressing up this year?
This is a weird year, and frankly, I’m not even sure we are going to leave the house. I do have a 4 year old though and I fully plan to make Halloween fun for him. So even if Halloween ends up being just a family affair this year, I fully plan to dress up and have fun! I have no idea though, what I plan to be, so I’m trying to decide between this list of last minute cheap or free DIY costumes.
Last Minute Cheap or Free DIY Costumes
Did you know that in a typical year the average American spends close to $100 on Halloween? This Halloween isn’t going to be like all the others for various reasons, so I’m certainly not going to let it cost as much money as it usually does.
- Scary Face Costume. Head to Walmart or other similar store and purchase an inexpensive face paint kit to create your own scary face costume. Look up easy face painting ideas on YouTube and get some tips on easy makeup application.
- A bunch of grapes. At Walmart or the dollar store, you can buy bags of balloons in a solid color. Buy a bag of purple balloons. Inflate the balloons and then tape them to your shirt. Voila! You are now a bunch of grapes.
- 50 Shades of Grey. Okay, book fans, here is a unique and totally free costume for you! Head on in to Home Depot, Walmart, etc and grab a good amount (at least 50 shades) of grey paint color swatches. Make sure they are all different shades. Tape them to your shirt and you are now 50 shades of grey.
- Facebook. Grab a stick of eyeline (you can buy the cheap stuff at Walmart for a dollar or two) and write the word BOOK on your face. Voila! You are now FACEBOOK.
There are so many ideas out there for you! Just put a little bit of imagination in it.
