Coolest Homemade Costumes and Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids

My 4-year-old daughter’s 10-year-old friend was brainstorming Halloween costume ideas for kids with her in the back seat on a long drive. They were drinking from water bottles, so they idea came up.

I thought it through and realized that with some string, plastic tubing, plastic sheeting, and tape, I could make something that looked like a water bottle. A bit of graphic design created a label for her, and some cardboard with stripes on it made a bottle-cap hat.

It rained that year, and the best part was that she kept pretty dry inside the plastic. And, of course, she got a lot of attention!

Total Spent: $20
