Oh how we love a good dress up fest, and so with Halloween around the corner we are simply brimming with excitement!  With a pinch of creativity  and some bargain buys (with a little help from us), you can create that Halloween costume that will put the ARE in SCARE – for less!

DIY Halloween

There are plenty of ways to save money and yet create outré, outrageous, original costumes. Fashion something out of stuff you have lying around the house, exchange outfits with a friend or with someone in the family or dig out something long forgotten from the attic. Those baggy trousers relegated to the back of your closet (the poor cousin in this skinny jean era) can work as clown trousers for instance! Use an old torn shirt for a scarecrow outfit, the stained one for a bloodthirsty zombie.
