Halloween is only a couple days away now and I still haven't decided what I am going to be. If you are a last minute planner-under-pressure kind of person too, I have compiled some ideas for us both that can be done in a short amount of time. They are also completely cool, will not need to be stored afterwards and won't create any unnecessary waste!
If you have makeup around, it can help make an easy disguise for Halloween without needing to purchase anything extra. I love these examples of Pop Art and cat makeup.
Using Recycled and Recyclable Materials
All of these costumes are made with cardboard or kraft paper that can be found in a residential or commercial recycling bin. What is even better, is that they can be put back in the recycling after Halloween and will not take up any space in your home!
This snail costume by Oh Happy Day is so cute! You can find the tutorial here and could use any other light, colorful spheres that you have for the antennae.
With a recycled box, this air mail costume would be really easy! It could also be turned into a present box or have some of the white outside paper peeled to reveal a peek of the contents inside.
Another simple and sustainable idea is to print out a mask template and construct it out of recycled card stock. Wintercroft designs these awesome animal templates that can be downloaded with clear instructions.
