11 Easy DIY Toddler Halloween Costume Ideas

These easy DIY toddler Halloween costume ideas are TOO CUTE and look so easy to make!

Over the last week I’ve been in full Halloween costume searching mode. One week it was 95 degrees and the next it was a high of 68 — and in my books that calls for pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween costume prep. So here we are. Last year Clara went as supergirl and her baby friend also happened to be supergirl. They were just too cute!! It was a costume that someone randomly passed down to us before she was born so there wasn’t much planning involved though.

This year though — well that’s another story. I just have no idea what she should be. Do we go with the giraffe theme one more time knowing that she’ll definitely have an opinion about what she wants to be next year? Or do I go with something more simple that we can DIY?

So since I’ve been perusing and gathering ideas, I figured I might as well share with you some of my favorite easy, costume ideas for toddlers I’ve found!
