Punny Halloween CostumesHaving trouble deciding what you want to be for Halloween this year? Why not be a pun? It sure would be punny! I’ve thought of three different costume ideas that are clever, super simple to make, and are easy on your bank account. They are perfect if you need to throw something together last-minute or if you’re looking to be something unique. Plus, I was able to find most of what I needed at my local Dollar Tree.

Queen Bee

Buzz into a store near you and grab the items below. Spray paint the crown black and wear the antenna headband with it. Don’t forget to top off the look with bee wings and a bee skirt. There you have it… you are now a “Queen Bee!”

  • Black Spray Paint (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)
  • Antenna Headband
  • Bee Wings

Smarty Pants

This is a great idea for a little boy or girl. Grab a pair of pants you have laying around the house and tape a few Smarties® candy packets on the pant legs. Add some accessories like fake glasses and a bow tie (for this example, I used a red bow tie that comes with the devil costume pack. I also took the lenses out of the reader glasses). Voila… you’re a “Smarty Pants.”

Copy Cat:

The “Copy Cat” is probably the easiest of all! Grab a solid-colored t-shirt (black or white) and either write or stick letters to it that read “Copy.” Finish off the look with cat ears and a tail.

  • Marker or Sticker Letters
