Halloween can be stressful. You want the best decorations for your house, candy for your trick-or-treaters, and costume for your kid. Well you don’t have to break the bank for the last one. There are so many things just lying around your house that you could use to dress them up. Or if anything, you can stop by Party City, the Dollar Store, or favorite craft store and pick up a couple of items to complete the outfits. Whatever you’re aiming to dress your little one as, you can find inspiration using easy materials.

Here are some ideas on how to DIY your own Halloween costume for your cutie.

1. Hula Girl

You can put your little one in their summer swimsuit, and add a $1 lei and $2 Hula skirt (Party City).

2. Army Guy/Girl

If they have cargo shorts and a t-shirt, they can totally be in the army. Add a dogtag from around the house and an Army hat for $2 (Party City).

3. Swan/Duck

4. Hippie

If you want to tackle a project, you can get a white dress or shirt (from a craft store) and tie-dye it (here is how). Add some flowers to hold or wear on their head, and you’re golden.

5. Ninja

Dress them in all black. Get some fabric and cut a hole and attach a piece of red fabric with a safety pin.

6. Crayon
