5 Easy DIY Halloween Costumes Using Regular Clothes

    Every year, I get more and more flustered about dressing up for Halloween. Particularly this year, I don’t have a lot of money to spend on an elaborate costume due to wedding costs. I’ve been determined to put together easy DIY halloween costumes from pieces I already have in my wardrobe. If I need to spend any money, I want it to be toward clothing that I can use in real life after Halloween is over.

    Check out these 5 easy DIY Halloween Costumes that are mostly made up of normal clothing. You can ease your mind knowing you’ll get repeated use out of the different elements of the outfit. Keep scrolling to find each item online, or just use the photo for inspiration and raid your own closet to put together your custom look.
