DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is fast approaching! Here are some easy DIY costumes to make while you’re enjoying the luxury of our Margate apartments.

#1 Tourist

This costume is fun and easy since you most likely have most of what you need in the closet already. Simply grab a Hawaiian buttoned down shirt, a simple “point and shoot” camera with a strap to hang around your neck, a lei, and maybe even a straw hat. If you don’t have these items, you can always peruse your local thrift store.

#2 Grapes

Transform yourself into a cluster of grapes with a few quick adjustments. Safety pin slightly blown-up purple balloons onto a purple t-shirt. Create a crown of vines with this fake foliage by hot-gluing them together. If you love literature, take this costume a step further. Spell out “By John Steinbeck” on your t-shirt with white adhesive letters to become the “Grapes of Wrath.”

#3 Cactus

Cacti are the trendy home plant of the year! So, why not be a cactus for Halloween? This costume does not even require sewing. Simply purchase a large-knit green sweater, a few fake flowers, and some white pipe cleaners. Pull pipe cleaners through the gaps in the knit. Twist the pipe cleaners at the ends to create the cactus’ spikes. Affix a couple fake flowers on a headband with a glue gun for the cactus’ bloom.

#4 Waldo

If you’re really in a time crunch, try being Waldo of “Where’s Waldo” for Halloween. This iconic character is easy to pull off and completely recognizable. Waldo’s attire is casual, so you can wear jeans and comfy shoes. The only thing you will need is a red and white striped long sleeve shirt, a red and white beanie, and glasses.
