We spotted this sweet DIY Field of Flowers costume on Oh Happy Day. The affordable costume was crafted using a shirt and leggings as the base and hot gluing fabric flowers onto them (a LOT of fabric flowers).

Photographer Ashley Ann made a collection of DIY Star Wars costumes for her family, including this sweet little Yoda costume. She made the look out of an old T-shirt, beanie and felt material. Pretty cool for a costume made from scraps, huh?

If you're scrambling around looking for a last-minute costume idea, we've spotted the perfect DIY owl kid's costume. The costume body is made from a T-shirt and the "feathers" are cut from fabric scraps. You can sew the fabric together or just use fabric glue if you're in a pinch.

You'll never guess what unconventional material is used for this Viking costume — toilet seat covers! Wardrobe basics like a long-sleeve white T-shirt and brown sweat pants keep this costume's cost low, while brown toilet seat covers are hacked to create the Viking "fur" accents.

Your little monkey will look adorable in this cozy sock monkey costume (buycostumes.com, $22). The bodysuit and monkey cap will help keep him warm if it's cold out during trick or treating. And if your little one goes bananas for this outfit, get some extra use out of the hat by using it as a beanie on brisk fall days.
