Inside: If you need ideas for great DIY family Halloween costumes this year, this post is a must-read! I’ve included over 100 cute and clever ideas your family will love!
When my son was little and I lots of time on my hands (read: no other kids) I made his Halloween costume each year.
He went as Robin Hood and Harry Potter and I loved putting a personal touch on his costume (you can see the pictures below)!
I’m not that ambitious anymore, but thankfully there are other mamas out there that are.
They shared their amazing pictures with me and I compiled it into one huge list of awesome ideas for DIY family Halloween costumes to try this year.
Some of these DIY’s are out-of-this-world awesome!
Others are easy enough that you may find the pieces online or at a costume store.
Either way, if you’re looking for DIY family Halloween costume ideas, you’ve come to the right place!

Background story to this costume:
My youngest brother fell down a mountain opening day of the deer hunt & had to be flown out of the mountain because he broke his femur & they thought he had fractured his skull.
He was in a wheelchair and really upset that he didn’t have a costume so we just threw together hunting clothes, my sister put on scrubs & my brother put on the gown & since my babe was a lion we made him look like he was attacked by a lion on a hunting trip.
So super creative, right??
I love how even though there were families who dressed up as the same thing, they all had a different take on the costumes.
