As Halloween is quickly approaching, everybody is beginning to think about what to wear as a costume. But if you can’t find a lot of money or ideas, don’t worry! I’m here to bring you 30 easy DIY Halloween costumes you can make yourself while staying under budget.
DIY Halloween Costumes with a partner or alone:
2. Mimes At The Circus
Every Halloween when I’m out with my boyfriend trick or treating I feel that cool northern nip in the air. The reasons I love this costume idea for taking my honey around on Halloween is that it keeps you fully covered and warm plus you’ve got your flats on for trekking through the neighborhood. The makeup is easy and minimal and you will both have the same red lips, so its ok to smooch a little. Most of all you and your beau will find you have acting skills you never knew about as everyone will be demanding nonstop entertainment from you guys.
DIY Couples Costumes
3. Popeye And Olive Oyl
I love Popeye and Olive Oyl so much, my boyfriend and I could not wait to get our old school cartoon character Halloween costumes together. The most important part was the spinach of course and my baby already had a captain’s hat, that I love on him. I just modified existing clothes we had by gluing on cut felt pieces and I tied a red scarf around that cutie’s neck, he made the best Popeye, I find myself wanting to get him to dress up like that for me throughout the year, he says no, but I’m going to keep asking. I love me some Popeye!
4. DIY Fro-Yo Costume
The cutest couples costume ever is the frozen yogurt and spoon. Frozen yogurt is everyone’s favorite so what could be more darling than a cup of frozen yogurt and a spoon? I made my props with a few items I picked up at Hobby Lobby, like the dacron batting that was the ice cream. The rest is a personal choice depending on how you like your yogurt. But everyone will know one thing and that is, your Halloween mate likes his yogurt with a spoon.

You guys get your black jeans and some quiet creeper sneakers stencil dollar signs on a couple of plain tot bags, two striped shirts, and don’t forget your masks. The loot sacks make excellent trick or treat bags for the young and young at heart. This awesome costume is for all ages.

6. Bob Ross And Happy Little Tree
Bob Ross is so hilarious, I have watched him for years but I never thought of him as a costume idea, much less a couples costume idea, but when I saw this I felt like a bolt from the blue came to me. I could be his landscape, he could be my painter, how totally romantic. I bought very few materials to make this, fake leaves and felt for me and a wig for my man. I have to say, he looked so stylish and super foxy, I’m going to make him get a perm. He’s just going to have to perm himself, he looks too darn good with one!
Easy Homemade Costumes For Couples
7. Buddy The ELF And Jovie Movie Character Couples Costume DIY
What happens when you love Christmas so much you have to bring it into Halloween? You and your man need to dress up like elves that’s what. I call these my transitional costumes because we will have them on in December as well. They are both no-sew costumes that I made from felt held together with fabric glue, so easy and so cute. If we don’t wear them again at Christmas, I will put them on my mannequins and stand them in the yard to bring my neighbors Christmas love.
8. Back To The Future Costume
Back To The Future is one of the most loved, iconic movies of all time and makes one of the best couples costumes. Who could forget Doc Brown with his crazy hair, and innocent Michael J. Fox? Just be prepared to know a few lines from the script, because I guarantee you will be asked to put on a little show for your fellow party goers.
9. Forrest Gump And Jenny
And just like that, it was Halloween! Forest Gump buffs out there are really going to love this Halloween couples costume. This is a really simple costume idea using your own clothing. Jenny can be the freewheeling cosmopolitan hippy chick and Forest is everything your man is, a big sweetie with a heart of gold. You will have so much fun together dressed as these star-crossed lovers.
10. Magic School Bus Halloween Costumes
For Halloween this year, I had a grand plan for our little family to go as characters from the Magic School Bus – I would be Mrs. Frizzle, Eddie could be the school bus, but Eddie was not willing to wear a big cardboard school bus, so I only really went all out on my costume. But I love it, and since I ended up making the bigger stars/planets/suns removable, I think I will get some extra use out of it. Perfect couples costume or great to wear around town, you will love the versatility of this costume.
11. Safari Couple’s Costume
12. DIY French Chef
13. American Gothic
14. Peter Pan And Tinkerbell
15. Princess Bride
1. Ron Burgundy
Of course, a classic for all the guys out there. All you need is a burgundy (or any colour on the red spectrum) suit, and a fake moustache and you’re all set. And if you have a special lady, you can have your very own Veronica Corningstone! Stay classy, Halloween.
2. Damian from Mean Girls
Easy, comfy, and funny – what more could you want in a costume?
3. Sugar Skull
This idea is perfect for those who want to focus more on the makeup and less on the costume. Some beautiful skull makeup and a flower crown or clip are all you need for this look.
4. Football Player
Heels aren’t necessary for this costume, but a jersey definitely is. Grab your favourite team’s jersey and some black paint for your cheeks and you’re instantly a football player.
5. God’s Gift to Women
Whether you wear this costume as a joke or in all seriousness, this is definitely a confidence booster among all the guys out there – even though some may not need one.
6. Gumball Machine
Grab a hot glue gun and a giant collection of pompoms – or actual gumballs, if you’re feeling adventurous – and go to town on this costume.
If you think your Instagram selfies are always on point, why not be a walking, talking selfie this Halloween?
8. Bag of Jelly Beans
This is perhaps one of the cheapest costumes to do yourself. All you need are small balloons, a clear trash bag, and a red ribbon to complete this look.
9. Stick Figure
A paper plate and some electrical tape is all you need to become a stick figure.
10. Minnie Mouse
You don’t need to go to Disneyland to know how to complete this iconic costume. Pair a red tutu with some Minnie Mouse ears and you’re all set.
11. Red Coat from Pretty Little Liars
This PLL classic is by far one of the simplest DIY costumes because there’s only one requirement – a red trench coat.
This Halloween classic can be reinvented with a pair of blue jeans, a beige hat, some makeup, and that one flannel shirt that I’m pretty sure almost everybody owns.
13. TY Beanie Baby
Just throw on that animal onesie that you’ve been dying to go out in, make yourself a TY tag, and you are now a Beanie Baby.
14. Wednesday from The Addams Family
This costume can be recreated with generally any black clothing with a white collared shirt underneath. But don’t forget the braids and straight face, the most important costume requirements.
15. Where’s Waldo
This costume can be done individually or as a group. Just grab a red striped shirt and a red hat and you are now the new Waldo.
DIY Halloween costumes for couples and groups:
16. Danny and Sandy from Grease
This old school Grease classic is a great couple’s costume. Get out those tight black clothes and your dancing feet and you’ll be the hottest couple at Rydell High.
17. Mario and Luigi
This is another iconic couple DIY that can’t go wrong. You and your partner will have everyone wondering where the rest of the Mario group is.
18. Netflix and Chill
This play on such a common phrase is very refreshing and fun. This DIY is so easy you could probably watch Netflix while putting your costume together. And it’s so comfy, too!
19. Salt and Pepper
What goes together better than salt and pepper? Probably nothing, which is why this is the perfect couple’s DIY.
20. 3 Blind Mice
This lovely trio can be recreated with many different variations of clothing, however, the three main accessories are: the mouse ears, the dark sunglasses, and the sticks.
21. Alvin and the Chipmunks
Whether this is recreated with males or females, this trio is always fun to DIY with your friends.
22. Candy Hearts
This DIY can be done with as little or as many friends as you’d like. The variations for the Candy Heart costume are endless.
This is your chance to be recognized as members of one of the most legendary rock bands. All it takes is some intense makeup and leather!
24. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Round up your favourite group of four, pick your turtle, and transform into a ninja. The DIY hack for the turtle shell is to use an aluminum baking tray and string it with shoelaces.
25. Social Media
If you are running out of time and ideas, this is a great go-to DIY costume. Round up a few friends, pick your favourite social media, and you have an instant costume.
Whether you are Batman, Superman, or Spiderman, any superhero will do just fine. Grab your superhero coloured tutu and a shirt with their logo on it and you can feel just like them for the day.
Grab your favourite group of gals, some white tank tops, some markers, and you all can turn into a sexy deck of cards.
This is another great group costume, as long as everybody wears a different coloured shirt. After all, you can’t just have one kind of m&m.
This is a fun DIY if coordinated with a large group. All you need are black clothes and white fabric to put this one together.
This final costume can be done as an individual or as a group. Pick your favourite emoji (which is going to be hard, I know) and showcase it with a group of friends. This costume will keep you and your friends laughing all day.
