With Halloween two weeks away – we’ve rounded up our favorite plant-themed and budget-friendly costumes from around the web.
1. DIY Cactus Costume – via Studio DIY!
All you need is a green dress, some yarn, and a glue gun. And if it’s a bit chilly on Halloween day – simply add green leggings, or swap the dress for a hoodie and sweatpants! We’re also a fan of Studio DIY’s Pineapple Costume.
2. Houseplant Halloween Costume – via Oh Happy Day
We can’t promise you’ll look as cute as this kid, but we still think it’s a killer costume. Bonus points that it won’t show how much Halloween candy you’ve ate. Visit Oh Happy Day here for step-by-step instructions.
3. Cacti Couple Costume – via Brit + Co
Another take on the cactus costume (optional title II: “a couple of pricks”). If you don’t have green bottoms laying around, opt for brown khakis instead and be a cactus potted in a terra cotta!
4. Flower Pot Costume – via Buzzfeed
Although we couldn’t find the original tutorial for this costume, it’s definitely DIY-able with a quick trip to Home Depot and your local craft store. You could even skip the silk flowers altogether and go just as a pot. We recommend going with a plastic planter – much easier to cut the bottom out of and walk around all day in…
