Looking for some no sew ideas that will take hardly any time and are budget-friendly too? Here are a few Halloween costume ideas that will take little more than a few costume props, pins, cardboard, etc. that look very creative for Halloween this year:
Bunch of Grapes
Wear purple and green sweats or tights, etc. Blow up purple and green balloons and attach all over your body with safety pins. Wear matching makeup on hands and face to blend in.
Take a white laundry basket and cut out the bottom. (Try to find one that does not have holes in it, otherwise tape a white cardboard piece to the inside of the laundry basket so as to show no holes.) Attach two strips of material to each side of the laundry basket, connecting front and back for shoulder straps. Blow up white, lavender, pink, and pearl colored balloons and safety pin them to the basket for your bubbles. Wear all white underneath, and add a shower cap, slippers, and a washcloth or poof brush for added effect.
Wrap white bandage gauze all around your kid, and add some moldy green paint splotches on to various areas of the gauze for the effect. Wrap tightly for a stiff gait!
Take a large cardboard box and attach long flat boxes to the front and back and hot glue small balls on the front for pulls. Cut out holes for arms on the sides and hole on top for head. Use a hot glue gun to attach foam to the inside of the box where your shoulders will rest to hold it up. Paint the dresser and write on each drawer: sweaters, socks, underwear, shirts, etc. Use your hot glue gun to place dresser accessories on top, a hairbrush, baubles, hair clips, etc. Complete the costume by hanging (again use the hot glue gun and use old stuff) socks, shirt, and sweaters out of the drawers. Place a small lampshade on your head so your neck and face appear as the base of a lamp.
Wear all white or all black. Using safety pins and pin anything to yourself, i.e. socks, underwear, bounce sheets, T-shirt, etc. Make sure to spray your hair straight up in the air too.
Take a plastic window box and cut out the bottom. Place rope suspenders on each side of the window box to wear over your shoulders. Use plastic flowers placed in Styrofoam and Spanish moss attached to the inside (with a glue gun) of the window box for the flowers. Make a flower head piece. Cut out large petals from bright construction paper, and attach the pieces to a headband.
