Simple Halloween Costumes for the Family
Creative last-minute disguises that you can pull together with everyday household items. By Krissy Tiglias
Horrified at the idea of throwing a Halloween bash? Don’t be afraid—we’ve made a list of everything you’ll need for a frightfully fabulous event.
Little Bearded Gnome and Mushroom
A truly enchanted ensemble. This roaming garden gnome is sporting an all blue outfit with high-top sneakers (boots will also work). The vest and beard are made from a paper grocery bag and cotton balls (get the how-tos). For this mushroom's conceptual disguise, dress your little girl all in white and let a rainy day accessory make a colorful splash. All you need is an old umbrella and a hot glue gun to attach the pipe cleaners (get the how-tos). Mom joins the fun by dressing in her Saturday afternoon gardening attire.
