Looking for the perfect Halloween costume for your little boy or girl? I have rounded-up 10 adorable DIY Halloween costumes for toddlers that you can easily make and your little one won’t mind wearing!

Halloween is just around the corner and I am sure there are loads of you out there who are still trying to decide what to dress your precious toddler up as for Halloween.  Am I right?  Well, I am here to help!  I have rounded up 10 of the most adorable DIY Halloween costumes for toddlers that I could find.  I can’t get over how cute and clever some of them are.  So, without further adieu, here are my top 10 picks, in no particular order!

10 Adorable DIY Halloween Costumes for Toddlers

DIY Baby Chicken Halloween Costume

Up first is this super cute no-sew chicken costume from Fun at Home With the Kids!  I love everything about this costume, especially the fact that it is no-sew AND that you really could make it with any colors you want.

DIY Thomas the Train costume

Next up is this amazing Thomas the Train costume that I imagine any little boy would love.  It’s made with various cardboard boxes and tubes.  It’s creative and relatively easy!  Check out the full tutorial at Am I a Funny Girl.

DIY toddler cat costume

Ummmmmm….  How CUTE is this DIY cat costume by Do It Yourself Divas?  I can barely handle how adorable this is.  Go check out the full tutorial!  It looks quick and easy.

DIY toddler superman costume

I nearly passed out when I saw this Superman/Clark Kent costume on Geek Tyrant–cuteness overload!  And talk about easy–there’s not even a tutorial for this one because none is needed!  All you have to do is purchase a Superman t-shirt and pair it with clothes that your little guy probably already has!

DIY toddler owl costume

Next up is this insanely cute DIY owl costume by The Martin Family Times.  Again, this one looks fairly easy and requires minimal sewing.  Love it!

DIY toddler UP costume

Next UP {pun intended} is this to die for DIY Up costume shared by Auburn Soul Photography.  Again, this one seems to mostly depend on items in your little guy’s wardrobe, with the addition of a DIY “walker” made with PVC pipe.  Take this photo to your local home improvement store and anyone should be able to tell you the pieces you need and how to go about putting it together.  Beyond adorable!

DIY toddler peacock costume

Ummm, yeah.  How CUTE is this DIY peacock costume?!  And the tutorial by Andrea’s Notebook makes it look really easy!

DIY toddler fireman costume

You know my husband is a firefighter, right? Needless to say, I have a soft spot for firefighter costumes and I adore this one by Crayon Box Chronicles.  Once again, your little guy can wear his own clothes, but will look like a professional firefighter when you make the DIY air tank {the full tutorial by Crayon Box Chronicles is awesome}!DIY toddler wind up doll

This DIY wind-up doll costume falls into the category of GENIUS in my book!  It’s beyond cute and is so creative.  The full tutorial is available on the DIY Network.

DIY toddler gnome costume

Last, but certainly not least, is this VERY easy and precious garden gnome costume by Adventure-in-a-Box.  It’s perfect for a boy or a girl and could not be cuter!

What do you think?  What is your favorite DIY Halloween costume for kids that you have seen?  Want to pin it to save these awesome ideas for later?
