10 Adorable Toddler Costume DIY Projects

Land Of Nod: Design for Kids and People That Used to be Kids

I have to admit, the posting schedule here has been a little wacky and I am sorry about that. Hopefully you haven’t noticed it too much! As many of you know, my husband just began the final stage of the credits he needs for a Fire Fighting career. So — long story short — his schedule changed which meant mine had to change. Apparently when you get married you have to be flexible. Who knew.

Anyways, because of this reason our schedule has changed. For the moment we will be moving away from posting on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. In exchange we will be posting on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

I know what you’re thinking, “but Tenesha, DIY Wednesday is my favorite post day!” Luckily for you, DIY Wednesday is now DIY Thursday! It doesn’t have as nice of a ring to it but hey, it’s only temporary.

My daughter and I have been sick for over a week with a strange, life draining cold. So, unfortunately I did not get around to making something uberly amazing for today’s tutorial. However — thankfully — the internet is chalk FULL of amazing DIY’s who are generous in sharing content.

With Halloween coming up I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to share a small compilation of DIY costumes for children. Yes, I know that Halloween is still over a month away but if you sew like me, it could take a month to make a costume! I’m trying to give us all a head start here even though I know there are a *couple* (myself included) procrastinators visiting this post.

I am struggling with costume ideas for my little girl because A) we live in Montana B) this means she will need to wear a snow suit underneath. Sorry Yvette! 

I have to laugh because I grew up in Montana and every Halloween I would pray for no snow. But alas, two weeks before it would ALWAYS snow. Why did I pray for no snow? Well, because my mother always humiliated me by making me wear a snowsuit underneath my princess costume. I mean, no princess is a Michelin tire MARSHMALLOW man in disguise.

I finally narrowed my costume list down to 10 adorable toddler costume DIY choices; 5 girls and 5 boys. I tried to find costume ideas where it would be doable to wear a snowsuit underneath.

Adorable owls and toddlers mix like PB&J! There’s just something about seeing owls on our children that’s just too cute. I believe this costume will be a little harder to craft but it’s definitely worth the time!
