Family Halloween Costumes: Awesome DIY Ideas!

Family Halloween costumes are so much fun!

I get such a kick out of seeing what people come up with to get the whole family into the Halloween spirit.

Last year my favorite family Halloween costumes were tied between a toddler boy who was dressed as a tomato plant while his mother was dressed as a gardener and another family who went all out dressed as Legend of Zelda characters.


Our most recent Halloween we had strict instructions from our then 3 year old daughter about what each of us would wear. The baby and I were black cats, Daddy was a pirate, and said 3 year old was a “candy witch”.

We’ve just begun discussing this year’s Halloween plans so I decided to start doing a little research.

I can’t lie, I am *really* digging the fairy dust mama and fairy girls costume idea (inside the link with the mom of dragons!). Maybe I can whisper this idea in my girls’ ears as they sleep. Ha!

Addams Family

What does your family do to make Halloween special?

Do you dress up together? How do you decide what everyone will be? Is it always a big theme?
