No magic spells required.
We know, we know–summer's just barely getting started, and you're too busy serving up the best grilling recipes and soaking up the sun to even think about Halloween. But time goes so quickly that before you know it, it'll be October, so why not get a jump on thinking about Halloween costumes for kids? When it comes to last-minute costume ideas, witches usually reign supreme—and with good reason. You can make a DIY witch costume as scary, silly, or glamorous as you want, and can be as budget-friendly or as lavish as you desire. (After all, just donning a witch hat says it all!)
But just because a witch is a classic costume, that doesn't have to mean boring or basic. In fact, your kiddo likely already has something hanging in her closet or dress-up box that you could use as a jumping-off point to DIY a wickedly good witch costume she'll love (and no one else at her school will have). But before you break out your sewing machine or rush off to the craft store, take a look at this roundup of DIY witch costume ideas, which range in price and crafting ability. No magic spells required! Also, most of the examples you'll see here are for the young crowd, but they could just as easily translate to DIY Halloween costumes for women if you're looking to hop on a broomstick of your own.
