Dressing up is one of the best things about Halloween. However, it can be expensive and wasteful, as millions of people buy ready-made costumes, wear them once, and then get rid of them. Instead of spending lots of money and filling up landfills, get crafty and come up with your own creative costume with inexpensive and recycled supplies. You’ll save money and the planet.
A few weeks ago, my son announced that he wanted to be a hamburger for Halloween. I was able to put the costume together in just two hours and was quite pleased with the finished product. I spent about $5 on fabric and felt. The fabric ($1.99) is from Goodwill, and the felt is from Michael’s ($2). Instead of Fiberfill stuffing, I used plastic grocery store bags.
