Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

costume roundup
I’ve had a few e-mails recently from readers looking for my Bat Wing Tutorial, it’s very popular at this time of year. So I thought I’d post a little Halloween Costume roundup from the archives of My Poppet.

All of these costumes can be put together with clothing and accessories that you may already have at home, and only require you to make one inexpensive accessory which takes less than a hour, making them ideal for last minute late night costume emergencies.
