The Laundry Basket

Fun Homemade Halloween Costumes

What you'll need:

- Large laundry basket, whether round or square

- Empty box of detergent

- Empty bleach bottle

- Empty box of fabric softener sheets

- Socks and clothing

- Hot glue gun

- Yarn or extra wide ribbon

- Large scissors or shears

What to do:

First, using the large shears cut out the whole bottom of the laundry basket being rigorous not to leave any sharp edges or loose pieces of plastic. Then using the yarn or ribbon, thread two pieces up straight through the bottom of the basket to fashion a set of "suspenders" that will be used to keep the basket up around the waist.

With the glue gun, randomly glue some old socks and t-shirts or towels to the inside rim of the laundry basket so that they will hang over the sides after the glue has dried. The small laundry box and fabric softener box can be glued to the top or sides of the basket, while the bleach bottle can be used as a "hat" after cutting off the bottom of the bottle.

The Window Flower Box

What you'll need:

- A plastic window flower box

- Plastic flowers, ivy, leaves

- Green craft foam, Spanish moss or Styrofoam and green fabric

- White craft foam or heavy building paper

- Hot glue gun

- Yarn or extra wide ribbon

- Large scissors or shears

What to do:

Cut out the bottom of the window box, or the back too if it's too small for man to fit inside of, and then glue whether the green craft foam, Spanish moss, or Styrofoam covered with green fabric inside the box. Also, cut out two small holes in the box that the yarn or ribbon can be threaded into for a pair of suspenders to hold the box up around the waist.

Now add the plastic flowers, inserting them into the craft foam, and cover with the Spanish moss for an extra realistic touch. Make a flower headpiece using whether white foam or building paper cut into petal-shaped pieces and attach to the head using a hair band or ribbon.

Other easy homemade Halloween costumes are:

- A box of popcorn: Cover an empty cardboard box with white butcher paper and add red stripes using building paper or markers. Using a hot glue gun, glue pieces of popcorn, whether real or the type that's used as packing material and painted yellow, to the exterior of the box and around the rim. Complete the costume with red or white pants or tights.

- A pair of dice: Two children can be a pair of dice with cardboard boxes, butcher paper and black dots cut from building paper.

- Tourist: An easy but fun costume to make is the vacationing tourist using a Hawaiian-type shirt, sunglasses, a camera, a loud hat and a few maps.

- Animals: It's uncomplicated to make animals such as a cow, pig, dog or cat using appropriately colored sweat suits, a few pieces of felt for embellishments, and some face make-up to draw on the whiskers or spots.

There are countless homemade Halloween costumes that are uncomplicated to make and cost a fraction of what you'd pay for the boring, lowly ones you find in the stores, and production your own is so much more fun!
