Inside: If you need ideas for great DIY family Halloween costumes this year, this post is a must-read! I’ve included over 160 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)!

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.
