Halloween is around the corner and our family is brainstorming what costumes to wear for this fun holiday. First, I looked through Pinterest and found some great ideas for DIY costumes. Second, I went down to my local Dollar Tree store and 99 Cents Only Stores to see what costume selections they had. Third, I went through our toy bins and found some dress up items that would double as the perfect halloween costume!
Here are some fun, inexpensive and super simple costumes I put together for my 2-year-old daughter.
I bought small pieces of black, purple, pink and yellow felt from Joann’s Fabrics to a make this feminine super hero cape. I made a simple design of a C and flower, but you can literally make any picture/logo/sign you want! A little hot glue on the felt and you’re all done. We paired the cape with a pair of Charlotte’s favorite sunglasses and voila ~~ Super Hero C is born!
How adorable is this costume below? I found these wings, crown, jewelry and pink tutu from the dollar tree store, all for $6! (Tip: I bought two tutu skirts and layered them because each one was thin.)
I found these adorable wings at the 99 Cents Only Stores and paired it with black pants and shirt that we already had. These $1 wings brought so much joy and imagination to Charlotte this afternoon, it was completely worth it and totally on the list for Halloween this year!
I found this jean vest in Charlotte’s closet, this guitar she had in her toy bin, and these sunglasses were from Valentine’s Day treat bags that I had made.
This adorable hat and apron set was $1 each from the Dollar Tree store. These tiny cooking utensil were from Charlotte’s kitchen set at home. Charlotte loved the idea that she was a real chef.
We have this Doctor set from Melissa & Doug at home and it’s one of Charlotte’s favorite dress-up toys. I thought it would be the perfect Halloween costume since she can be like “Doc McStuffins”.
What costume is more adorable than a black cat for toddlers? These ears (along with a tail and collar) and black tutu were each $1 at dollar tree! SO CHEAP! We already had a black long sleeved shirt and these black pants, so all I needed to add was a little black eyeliner for her nose and whiskers.
I hope these pictures give you great ideas for Halloween this year!
