Quick and Easy DIY Cookie Halloween Costume

We have been battling preschool plagues on and off since the beginning of September. I honestly wasn’t sure we were going to do any kind of dress up for Halloween this year as we are just barely over the last bout of sickness. But we are mostly better (save for some itchy eyes and noses.) And I decided to make a quick DIY Cookie Halloween Costume for my sweet little dude.

This is a great quick and easy costume to make for anyone, especially great for kiddos who can’t choose what they want to be yet. Another big perk: it is SUPER cheap! It only cost me $5 in supplies. Yes, only $5. I was able to get all these things at Wal-Mart. And I have some leftover pieces to make other stuff with now too.

We’re not going trick or treating, but I was at least able to continue the fun tradition of putting together a costume for my child to enjoy for Halloween. Plus I get cute pictures for my own memories!
