Halloween is a great way to kickoff the holiday season. We love the way leaves crunch under our feet as our kids rush from house to house, collecting all the candy their tiny hands can hold. However, the most crucial part to having a successful Halloween is, of course, the costumes.

It can be hard enough getting your tyke to agree on a costume they want to wear, let alone finding that perfect one. Which is why we’re all about these homemade Halloween costume hacks that will make even last-minute outfits seem like they were slaved over for hours.
