Halloween is exactly one week away and if you're still trying to deiced on a costume idea don't worry, I got you covered. 

I always love coming up with Halloween costumes and making my own costumes. I just think they're so much more fun when you make them yourself and they're cheaper that way too! Today I'm bringing you 3 super easy and cute Halloween costumes that you can put together. So let's get started now, shall we?


We'll start off with something easy... a blueberry! You can be almost any fruit really, just change the color of the dress! 

For the blueberry costume you will need:
  • A headband
  • Piece of cardboard
  • Green Felt (or green paint)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Any blue dress
For the headband, all you need to do is cut a rectangle out to represent the stem and cut a piece out in the shape of a leaf. From there you just need to paint or cover the leaf cut out in green felt and glue everything together onto the headband! Super easy!

I guess I have a thing for berries, last year I was a strawberry (you can see my costume from last year HERE)! I guess it's a tradition to do at least one berry costume a year?


If you knew RJ then you know this costume is PERFECT for him. His shirt couldn't be more accurate! 

For the Ketchup costume, you will need...
  • A headband
  • Styrofoam disk
  • Styrofoam cone
  • Red paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Any red clothing
  • Optional: a print out of the Heinz logo
For the headband, I just glued both pieces of the styrofoam disk and cone together and painted them red. After the painted pieces were dried I glued them onto a headband and that was pretty much it! 

If you don't have a Heinz shirt, you can always print off the logo and tape it to your outfit. You can totally switch up the colors and make it yellow to be a mustard bottle (which I was last year!) or you could go as a couple costume and be ketchup and mustard!

McDonald's French Fries

Okay, last but not least my guilty pleasure... McDonald's french fries! I mean, you are what you eat, right?

For this costume, you will need...
  • Cardboard cut into skinny fry shapes
  • Headband
  • Yellow paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Oversized red shirt
  • Yellow felt
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pen
  • Scissors
For the headband, you will just need to cut out strips of fries and paint them all yellow. I think I used about 20 strips to get my desired "fry crown look." You will want to glue down the taller pieces first and build your crown from there trying to fill in any empty spaces.

For the shirt, all you need to do is trace out the "M" logo onto your yellow felt, cut it out, and hot glue it onto your shirt! I added some spanks underneath and some red shoes and I was good to go!

  1. How did you make sure the French fries were sticking straight up from the headband? Did they sag?
