My Thrifted #Halloween {DIY costumes & crafts}

by This is Carrie on October 5, 2012

Costuming a family of 6 for Halloween can cost a pretty penny. When I try to save money with homemade costumes, it costs me a ton of time.  These last few years I’ve found a happy combination of homemade, reused and thrifted costumes for the whole family, costing me not too much time or money.  That’s why I always begin my Halloween shopping season with a trip to my favorite thrift store, Savers. During the Halloween season, Savers has the largest selection of new and used costumes, accessories, home décor, and makeup of any other store.

I’ve been hoping to pull off an Olympic family themed Halloween since we decided on the girls Olympic Gymnast costumes.  Finding these pieced together warm up suits at Savers sealed the deal (especially the break away pants with star and stripe trim). Embellished with USA flags and “official” Olympic patches, Todd and I will make perfect gymnastic coaches.

Even though the boys already have their costumes ready (one hand-me down Mighty Mouse and one homemade Hulk), I was excited to pick up all the green Hulk makeup I needed. And I just couldn’t resist this little monster hat in the Savers “new costume”section. I know it’s quickly going to become a costume box favorite. FYI: they have adult sizes too.

Savers is also my favorite supply store for Halloween DIY decorations.  Boring knick knacks and discarded Barbies become….

Dolls of the Living Dead and Sinister Ceramics greeting trick or treaters at your door.

Money Saving Shopping Tip: Bring in a bag of donations to your local Savers store and you’ll get a 20% off coupon you can use on your in-store purchases.
