Last Minute Toddler Halloween Costumes

Alright we’re all busy moms, and I am not going to lie, even with how creative and into holidays as I am I have been stuck in a few pickles on Halloween trying to find last minute toddler Halloween costumes the day of or before we trick-or-treating.  I wanted to round up 10 costumes for everyone that I did with only a prop or two, and all outfits I had at home.  I am hoping to do a second round of these for 10 more in a couple of weeks so stay tuned.  But in the mean time check out these options and start getting excited for that spooky day!

#3 Cotton Candy

Ave´ did this a couple of years ago but with a bit more effort.  I actually saved the headband but to do an easier headband you could also just do noms and a paper cone (this is RIT dyed stuffing and a paper cone).

details: leo  // shoes // skirt

#4 Cinderella

This was Avé last year on Halloween.  It was a super easy DIY with things we had around the house. I wrapped white tulle around her shoulders, used black ribbon around her neck and a little gold crown headband we owned.  Add white tight and gloves and she was set.

details:  leo // shoes // gloves // crown  

#5 Gus Gus
