If you think making Halloween costumes for your kids requires too much time and effort, think again. While it's always going to be easier to shop on Amazon or go to your local party store, there are also some surprisingly easy ideas that require minimal effort and look extra adorable.
These DIY food costume ideas on Primary make it easy to shop the basic look and add some extra embellishments. You can purchase the shirts and pants on their site and then DIY the rest. For the most part these are affordable options as well — most costumes, the site indicates, are under $25 for the complete look. If you consider how much you'd spend on something from Amazon (plus that extra shipping if you don't have Prime), then it's a steal. Here are some of my top picks for this year!
1. Cotton Candy Costume by The Playhouse
I'm starting this list with the hardest costume, but honestly, it's not even that complicated. I swear! You can purchase the pink shirt and pants through Primary, and you use adhesive spray to attach the pink polyester fiber fil to create the cotton candy look. No sewing required!

2. Carrot Costume by The Playhouse
All you need for this costume is the orange shirt and pants — which you can buy through Primary — and then a green hat you make out of green paper and ribbon.

3. Ice Cream Sundae Costume by Primary
You can buy the pants and the onesie on Primary, and then you just need different-colored felt to create the sprinkles and cherry hat.

For this costume you need purple pants and shirt (which you can find on Primary) and then a bunch of purple balloons. So easy!
