Amazing DIY Kids Costumes

Okay so Halloween is still 6 months away, but you can never be too prepared. I change my mind so often about my boys’ costumes every year, it always seems to come down to the last minute and leaves me feeling unsatisfied with the outcome. I surfed around and found some of what I think are the most original, but still totally awesome, diy kids costumes.
