Family Halloween Costume Idea #1: Harry Potter










If you’re looking for Halloween costume ideas for the entire family (or just a really big group of people), here are some of my favorite costume ideas.

Most of the costumes are from Etsy (only because I love the idea of handmade costumes), which you can either order, recreate with your own DIY skills, or find cheaper in the stores:
