DIY Halloween Costumes with Cricut
Well if you own a Cricut machine, there is no better time than Halloween to use it. You can create fabulous DIY Halloween costumes with Cricut. The best part is that you can get Free SVG Bundles for creating your own halloween shirts. Here are some of my favorite ideas for DIY Halloween costumes for kids as well as adults using a Cricut machine:
1. The Skeleton
You can easily create a skeleton costume for yourself or your kids at home by just bringing your Cricut machine to use. To pull this one off, all you need is to print and cut some svg bones (stickers) and apply them to your black jumpsuit. If you don’t have a black jumpsuit, you can simply put them on a pair of black pants and a plain black t-shirt!
2. Elsa from Frozen
Make this costume for your little princess and she will be over the moon! For this one, you just have to use your Cricut machine to cut a variety of snowflakes and apply them to her ice-blue dress. You can finish the look by braiding her hair similar to Elsa’s iconic braid, you will find hundreds of tutorials on YouTube that will teach you how to do that!
3. Snow White
Dressing up as snow white is a great idea for DIY Halloween costumes for kids. Simply pair up a blue shirt with a yellow skirt. Give the hair some tight curls and apply ruby red lipstick. To really get into the character, give your kid a fresh apple to carry around during the party!

Just take a black marker and draw a moustache and beard on your face if you’re a girl and whiskers on your face if you’re a guy. You can Google their photos for more accurate reference and that’s it! It will take hardly 5 minutes to finish this look and everyone who has seen friends will immediately recognize what you guys are the minute you enter the party!

DIY Halloween Costumes at Home
The older you grow, the less sense it starts to make in investing a sum of money to buy a ridiculous costume that you are never going to wear again! So, the rational thing to do would be to create a Halloween costume for yourself at home while also spending the least amount of money.
Refer to these ideas below to get some inspiration:
6. The Happy Clown
I know this is among one of the most common costumes but hey if we are talking about easy DIY Halloween costumes, this is something you can pull off with the least hassle!
Own a pair of red chinos? Great! Pair it up with a bright-colored shirt and get yourself a clown wig and some face paints. You know how this goes, put on the wig, give yourself a clown makeover, and Ta-da! It would take like 15 minutes for you to get ready!
7. Bloody Mary
Ah- it doesn’t matter how old I am, bloody Mary still scares the soul out of me! You can easily do a bloody Mary makeover at home and get ready for Halloween. All you need is a white dress and some face paints.
Wear the dress and paint your face and neck white. Now add effects using either red lipstick or red paint. Again, google the pictures for a better reference. You will be amazed at how effortless it is to create this look and yet it looks so spooky!
8. Strawberry Costume
This is a perfect idea for DIY Halloween costumes for kids if you are a mom to a little girl. All you need is to buy felt paper in the colors yellow and green. Cut out seed-like shapes from the yellow felt paper and leaves from the green one and paste these on her plain red dress using a glue gun or double-sided tape (if you don’t want the dress to be ruined). Scatter around the yellow seeds on the dress and paste the leaves along the neckline of the dress. She can pair it up with a basket in her hand containing strawberries!
You can also use my Cute Creepy Kids SVG Bundle to make your child rock the party.
So, which one of these was your favorite? For me, it has to be the one with Ross and Rachel in Vegas! It is so creative and yet so easy. If you want to dress up unique, I suggest you try this one. I’m really looking forward to Halloween this year, let’s wait and find out which costume was the most common and trending this year!
