I love Halloween. I used to love going to the store and picking out my costume every year. As the years pass things just seem to get more expensive. Not only that, but Halloween costumes are getting more cheaply made, and almost none of them fit well. I decided that making DIY Halloween Costumes are worth it. Today I want to show you how we made an adorable kids DIY Skeleton Costume With The Cricut. The whole thing cost less than $20 to make and it will last lifetimes longer than anything you’d buy in a store. I hope you enjoy learning how to make your own for your kiddos!

I love how this DIY Kids Costume turned out. It’s a great DIY Halloween craft to make with your little ones. I know It’s hard to save money sometimes, but you can definitely save a ton making your own kids’ costumes. It’s so easy and kids always love to know their costume in one-of-a-kind. Another issue I see in store-bought costumes is how thin they are! I always have to get the kids to wear warm clothes under and over their costumes. When you make them yourself, you can make them as warm as you’d like. Enjoy your own affordable DIY Halloween Costume with your Cricut Maker!
