5 Easy DIY Baby Halloween Costumes

Okay so I know that it’s only September, but inevitably every year October rolls around faster than I would like. So this year I decided to try and get the ball rolling. I love seeing cute costumes on babies, but I also have a limited amount of energy to spend on them.  So with that in mind, I’ve put together a list of five easy costumes for babies (with a few family costumes thrown in!).

Charlie Brown

I have seriously contemplated this costume for my son just because is still bald as a bowling ball. Well that and it’s just adorable. All you need is the onsie, and a toy Snoopy. A cheaper DIY option for the Charlie Brown onsie is to buy a yellow onesie and use a sharpie to draw the pattern yourself. If you’ve never shopped at they are usually doing a promotion for first time buyers.

Baseball Team

This is a really easy way to do a DIY costume for the whole family. Get a few plain baseball T’s for the family, and baby can be the baseball. If you don’t want to buy baby a costume just use a red sharpie and a white onesie to make your own!

A Great Last Minute Costume: Baby Chef

Speaking of easy DIY costumes. This little Chef’s outfit is great if you need something last minute. Just a white onesie, a red bandana/scarf, some red leggings if you want to complete the outfit, and a sharpie. Check out Rookie Moms for more info on this adorable DIY plus more costume ideas.

Burglar & Money Bag

This is my cute husband and I the year before we had our son. But it would be so adorable with a little “money bag” baby. You could use either a white or green onesie with either an iron-on dollar sign or just draw it with a sharpie as I did with the original bags. This one is great if you want to involve the whole family.


DIY: What You Need

  • For Baby
    • White or Green Onesie
    • Sharpie
  • Mom and Dad
    • Black Bottoms
    • Black and White Striped Shirt
    • Black Beanie
    • Black Felt for Burglar Mask

** If you want to do the bags I just used old pillow cases and stuffed them with leaves. I did a hand stitch around the corners to round them out, and used a sharpie for the dollar signs.

Cinderelly and Gus Gus

I put this one in as a bonus because it’s my favorite, and it’s my son and I so I’m a little bias. A friend of the family gave us the Gus Gus outfit, however it would be super easy to make yourself. I pieced my costume together from cheap items I found at a consignment store, but really any dress would be fine.

DIY: What You Need

  • For Baby:
    • Green Hat
    • Yellow Shirt
    • Gray/Pink Felt for Mouse Ears


Unisex Cotton Hat:

Assorted Felt:


  • For Mom:
    • Dress or Skirt
    • Apron
    • Handkerchief
    • Broom (If you want a prop)

If you don’t want to order mouse ears you can print some or cut them out of felt and sew them to the hat. If you don’t already have a yellow shirt for baby, you can usually find one for pretty inexpensive somewhere like Old Navy, Walmart, or your favorite consignment store.

Thanks for reading lovelies!
