D.I.Y. Last Minute Halloween Costumes for Infants & Toddlers

Still don't have a Halloween costume for your kids?! You can try your luck at the store, but all that's likely to be left are Heinz Ketchup onesies and Justin Bieber wigs. But don’t fret! We've got some great last minute do-it-yourself ideas that will have your tot taking home this year's “Costume of the Year” award.

Carl from Disney's "UP"

This get-up is not only adorable, it's super simple to put together. All you need is a pair of glasses, a few balloons, and a “walker” made out of PVC and tennis balls! Dig a cardigan and a bowtie out of the closet, and you're good to go!

“Game Boy” Tetris

Channel the 80’s and turn your little monkey into a “Game Boy”! Have an old onesie lying around? Then all you need is some fabric glue, colored felt, et Voila!

Chipotle Burrito

This extremely last minute DIY costume is a winner! Gold tinfoil and a leftover chipotle bag and you've got yourself one tasty little burrito! Make sure you don’t take a nibble by accident….

Princess Leia

Turning your little princess into the iconic Leia may take some grunt work, but making a wig out of brown yarn will definitely be worth the effort! Yarn, socks, and a glue gun will help you achieve these glorious side buns.

Popcorn Kernel

We over here at HiMama are a bunch of movie lovers, therefore we think the idea of dressing up your baby as a cute little bundle of popcorn is a show-stopping idea! Popcorn? Glue? Felt? Good to go!

Flower Pot

This costume may just land your child a spot in the next Anne Geddes calendar. @ClumsyCrafter gives you a step by step tutorial on how to grow your tot into a blooming beauty!

Subway Foot-long

Transform your bambino into a delicious foot-long sub! For this doozy, all you need is some construction paper for the veggies, and then a trip down to the local Subway to pick up some sheets of sub wrapping paper. Cute enough to eat!

Treasure Troll Doll

Parents: be forewarned that you will have entirely too much fun getting that neon hair to stick up straight! Add on tan tights, a tan bodysuit, a rhinestone belly button and you’ve got yourself a little treasure troll!

Wayne and Garth

Party on Wayne! Party on Garth! This costume will not only be easy to put together, it will put your child in the Guinness World Book of Records for having the BEST COSTUME EVER (even if they don’t appreciate it until they are well into their 20’s).

Wilson the Volleyball

This costume is a winner for infants because it is the only age in which they are very similar in size to a volleyball. Buy a onesie two sizes too big, stuff it with old socks, and use red paint for the face. SCORE!
