There's nothing more adorable than a baby on Halloween! Chances are you can't wait to deck out your bundle of joy in a spooky (read: adorable) costume, but instead of hitting up Party City for a mass-produced outfit that every other kiddo in town will be wearing, trick-or-treat your little one with one of these DIY costumes!
We've rounded up the best of the best to get you inspired, and warning: You might pass out from cuteness overload.
1. Sock Monkey
Hear that? It's the sound of thousands of people going "awwwww!" The sock monkey costume from Grosgrain (similar to the one pictured) is absolutely to die for. It's made from a few simple thrift shop sweaters that are sewn together using a baby pajama pattern, and would be simple enough to recreate if you have a sewing machine handy. If not, a needle and thread works wonders on the fly!
2. Baby Owl
This costume is an absolute hoot! (Sorry, we had to.) If you're looking for a quick costume to make out of simple materials, this costume from Teal & Lime is your best bet. You just need to sew some feather-shaped fabric onto your baby's coziest onesie, and make an owl mask out of felt! Your little one will get plenty of candy thanks to this number.
3. Baby Harry Potter
It's Halloween night and you have literally no ideas. Well, fear not — you can piece together a quick Harry Potter costume by sticking your baby in a preppy English-style outfit, throwing on "wizarding robes" by fashioning a cape out of a pillow-case, sticking on some fake plastic glasses, and drawing a lighting bolt on his head. Check out Spearmint Baby for inspiration!
4. Baby Aerobics Instructor
The time has come to pump up the volume, pull on a pair of leg warmers, and start flash dancing with your baby! We're in love with this adorable aerobics instructor costume from Homemade By Jill — and get a load of that felt boom box! No pain, no gain, guys. Now excuse us while we go hit the gym for some mommy-baby yoga.
5. Baby Mushroom
Told you each of these costumes was cuter than the next! This mushroom outfit from Wispy House might just be our favorite on the list — it's simple, sweet, and features a caterpillar. What's not to love? Of course the best part is how easy it is to put together thanks to a great tutorial!
6. Baby Chick
Don't be fooled by the professional look of this cheerful chicken costume from Living the Swell Life. It's 100 percent homemade! Just buy an oversized onesie (so you can stuff it and make the chick extra-plump), sew on some feather boas, attach rubber gloves to some yellow leggings and fashion a simple felt hat. The results? Nothing short of fabulous. Get the how-to here.
