DIY Halloween Costumes (slideshow)

When Halloween rolls around, I tend to have a difficult time deciding on the perfect costume. What it often comes down to? Whatever clothes and props I have lying around the house the day before – or the day of – Halloween.

If you’re in a last-minute Halloween rush like me, or want to make your Halloween a little greener by creating your own costume, here are some suggestions that use many around-the-house items. Most of these costumes can be customized for children or adults. And be sure to click through to the last page to see my dog in a DIY pet costume.

Please feel free to add your own DIY costume suggestions in the comment field below. What kind of costume will you create this year? Or what is your favorite costume from a previous Halloween??

Next: Create a bat costume using an umbrella!
