Don’t you just love sweet homemade Halloween costumes? I was perusing Pinterest, as I have been known to do a time or two (hundred), and kept finding these adorable DIY costumes that I thought were perfect for this nature-loving Mama and her little free spirits.
Since I know so many of you also fall into that same category, I thought I would share my finds right here.
I also thought I would share one of my newest resources with you—Nature School—perfect for a little wild child!
Nature School is your outdoor learning companion. It provides activities centered around nature items to deepen your child’s experience. It gives you simple ways to incorporate literacy, numeracy, fine motor development, sensory play, and crafting to your time outdoors.

Garden Gnome by Costume-Works – This sweet costume is homemade with pipe cleaners for the beard and felt for the hat. It is such a sweet little Halloween costume for a garden-loving babe.
Mermaid by Mama Papa Bubba – Did your little one spend all summer in the water? What better costume than a mermaid for Halloween?
Potted Flowers by Costume-Works – It would be hard to find a sweeter costume for a little one who loves flower-power! And it seems super nice and simple to create, too.
Rain Cloud by Make-it Love-it – A little rain won’t stand in the way of this adorable Halloween costume shining bright. Such a cute homemade costume, especially for a little one who might have a bit of the grouch on her side.
Weather Person by by Make It & Love It – And to go along with that rain cloud? How about this hilarious weather person costume! So easy to put together, and besides crafting a little microphone, you likely already have everything you need.
Snail Costume by Oh Happy Day – Who knew Craft Paper worn as a backpack would be this cute? I do believe this little snail homemade Halloween costume might just be my very favorite.
A Little Pinecone by Nuggetland – This homemade costume is a little bit of work, but OH MY GOODNESS. Is this not the m0st adorable? The tutorial is fabulous, too. You can do it! And I really want to see a picture when you do!
Lumberjack by Costume-Works – It all starts with a simple flannel shirt… and a beard… after that, the cuteness is imminent! This Lumberjack costume is sure to be a hit.
Jellyfish Costume by Almost the Real Thing (link no longer available) – This is such a creative idea and perfect for the little one who might not really want to wear a costume. She can just hold an umbrella! This jellyfish really lights up, too, making it perfect for Trick-or-Treating.
Leaf Witch or Wizard Hat by Little Pine Learners – This stunning DIY hat would be the perfect addition to a witch or wizard costume!
String of Pearls Succulent Plant by @daniellerbevens – There aren’t step-by-step instructions for this one, but it was just too epic not to include! I imagine some string threaded through styrofoam balls painted green would do the job. Amazing!
New Sew Toadstool by Woodlark Blog – Can you believe this toadstool hat is a NO-SEW project!? The blog post has wonderfully details instructions on how to make this sweet costume.
Dandelion by April on Costume Works – This brilliant costume uses the foam inside of a bicycle helmet, wood skewers, and feater trim—genius!
