Sometimes it’s a bit hard to go all out for Halloween – you don’t have enough money leftover for a fabulous costume, you aren’t really inspired by anything at the moment to break out a particular look, or you simply don’t have enough time to put an outfit together. If you’re struggling to find the perfect outfit for this year’s spooky festivities, than I am pleased to announce that the wonderful folks at Studio DIY have you covered!
Studio DIY is a great website run by Kelly Mindell that features a series of wonderful DIY projects, party inspiration and wacky ideas that generally centre around all things confetti, pineapple, and balloon related (no wonder I love the website so much!) and she and her team have put together a series of DIY tutorials that are super easy, yet super effective when it comes to dressing up – especially for Halloween! Here are two adorable ideas to get you into party mode as the spirits of Halloween rise that don’t require too much more than some particular clothes that are already hanging in your wardrobe!
