Halloween Costume Ideas For Your Grandson or Granddaughter – Guest Post

I thought these Halloween costumes were awesome ideas! And a great post by Danielle at eatbreatheblog.com.

Halloween is literally just days away. Sure, you can buy your grandson an elaborate Halloween costume, but it may be more memorable to make the outfit yourself. If your grandson or granddaughter will be with you this Halloween, why not help by creating a winning costume? Many of these ideas just take a tiny bit of effort and time, and are much more affordable and memorable than anything you could buy.


This stoplight costume is adorable, and so simple to make. With a few pieces of cardboard, some ribbon and a black sweat suit, you can turn your grandson into an adorable traffic light. Just be sure that he isn’t holding up the cars as you trick or treat!

Flower Pot

If you can find a lightweight flower pot that your little granddaughter can stand in, then you can create this flowerpot costume quite easily. Have your spouse carve out the bottom and sand the edges so she can stand in it. Add a headband, some felt and some suspenders round out the costume. For just a little bit of money, she can have something adorable and unique to wear this Halloween.


Fairy/Princess Tutu

Tutus are one of the easiest, and most adorable, costumes to make for a little girl. A little bit of elastic and some colorful tulle can easily transform into a ballerina, fairy or princess. You don’t even have to know how to sew, because all you do is look strips of tulle around the elastic, tie them off and you have a tutu. Add a matching top or onsie and some tights and the costume is complete.

Cardboard Pony and Cowgirl

If your granddaughter is obsessed with horses — and what little girl isn’t — why not make her into one? This cute pony from Kid’s Stuff World is a great idea. You can make this a dual costume by dressing up like a cowgirl yourself and wrangling your little one!


Tug Boat and Captain

Does your grandson love boats and ships? Why not make him this little tugboat, and then complement the costume by dressing as a ship’s captain, complete with sailor hat and sash? Or, turn the ship into a pirate ship, and make your own captain hook!


This year, your grandchild can have a memorable costume if you are willing to put in a little time. so grab your glue gun, scissors and a cardboard box and get to work!
