How is it that one moment you're having drinks poolside in the thick of summer, and the next you're carving pumpkins, watching spooky movies, and scrambling to figure out a last-minute Halloween costume for yourself or your little one? If you'd like to get ahead of the costume-choosing game for once, may we suggest throwing it back to the '70s and showing off your inner flower child in a DIY hippie costume? Not only is it a fun theme to rock, but it's also one you can pull off easily using items that are likely already in your closet. (Think: flared jeans, flowy tops, headbands, tinted sunglasses, tie-dye clothing, and boho-style dresses.) And if, despite the best of intentions, you do wait until the last minute? Well, that's okay too. Seriously! With minimal effort and materials, you can whip up a groovy DIY hippie costume for yourself (or your child!) in no time flat. Not so much a crafter? We threw in a few options you can buy and have delivered right to your door in just a few days. No matter which way you go, this is one of the most fun costumes you can choose, thanks to fun accessories and comfortable clothing. Happy crafting, and Hippie Halloween!
