As we all know, October is the month when life gets hectic. Between school and work, it is easy to forget about the light at the end of the tunnel: Halloween. So if putting together a costume has slipped your mind, no fear. Here are some easy and creative DIY costumes to get you ready for the most fun holiday of the year.



  •  1 ½ yards of any black fabric
  • 6 inches of 1/8-inch elastic
  • 1 headband
  • Any thick black fabric
  • Hot glue and gun

Bat Wings
1. Fold the 1 1⁄2 yards of fabric in half and cut inverted scallops off the diagonal fold.
2. Cut two 3 inch sections of elastic and loop them, securing with hot glue.
3. Sew each loop onto the ends of the bat wings using a straight stitch, and go back and forth a few times to secure it.

Bat Ears-

1. Cut 4 identical triangles of your thick black fabric.
2. With right sides of the fabric together, sew up the sides of the triangle, leaving the bottom open.
3. Repeat for the second ear.
4. Turn the bat ears inside out.
5. Hot glue onto the headband, let dry.

  • Faux Fur (one light and one dark)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Plastic Headband
  • Needle and Thread
  • Wire

Bunny Ears:
1. Cut out two bunny shapes from the faux fur, making the darker one bigger for the outer ear and the lighter one smaller for the inner ear.
2. Cut out strips of wire and bend them into the shape of the bunny ears. Secure each piece of wire with hot glue.
3. With the excess wire, secure the ears to the headband. Cut out strips of dark fur and glue to cover the headband.

Bunny Tail:
1. Cut out two circles of light faux fur into a bow tie shape.
2. With the needle and thread, sew the two circles together, leaving a little opening to stuff the ball with any excess faux fur.
3. Sew the rest of the tail and secure onto your costume using a safety pin.
