The basics for your little one’s Halloween costume are lurking in the back of your closet. All these elements need to come to life is your creative touch and maybe a little hot glue. Perhaps you’ll make a quick trip to the craft store for paper or ribbon or wrap tape, and you’re done. There’s still time to pull it together and send your kids out in the costumes they’ve been waiting to wear all year. Whether scary or cute, adventurous or sweet, these are easy and fun Halloween outfits you can throw together at the last minute.
For a last-minute costume as sweet as bubblegum, take 1.5″ pom poms and attach them to a plain white t-shirt with a hot glue gun. Create a 25-cent price tag and coin slot out of felt and then attach to belt with a safety pin! Cute Girls Hairstyles.
