Quick, Easy & Cheap Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Great fun and easy costumes for everyone that don't look like they were thought of at the last minute.

It's the day of Halloween and you still don't have a costume yet? Don't worry, before going out tonight there are still some creative options without resorting to throwing on a white bed sheet, or wearing lingerie and some bunny ears. 

While you could go to the pop-up Halloween store in the mall and rummage through whatever is left, we found some great costumes for all ages that will ensure a spooktacular Halloween.

A Little Bearded Garden Gnome - Your kids may already have the clothes. You'll just need to make a simple hat and beard.

Bag of Jelly Beans - You'll need a clear trash bag and set of strong lungs to make this sweet costume

Baby Snail - Find a bunch of brown craft paper and get rolling!

Catch of the Day - This is a "reel" easy costume to put together.

Quarterback - This punny costume is quick and easy to make.

Spaghetti and Meatballs - Use a red and white tablecloth and a pot to make this saucy costume.

Lego - This costume is easy to build using a cardboard box, paper bowls and spray paint.

Baby Octopus - A great way to use those mismatched socks left in the dryer.
