When it comes to Halloween costumes I love easy, inexpensive homemade costumes. And this year my daughter is going to rock Trick-or-Treating in her DIY Rock Star Halloween Costume.
If your kids haven’t decided what they want to be yet for Halloween then you are in luck. This months Michaels Makers challenge is all about DIY Halloween costumes with lots of inspiration on Michaels.com. Including this super easy and inexpensive idea for your music loving divas. Doesn’t every little girl have an inner rock star diva that’s just dying to get out? I remember one Halloween my sister and I dressed up as rock stars, we thought we were so cool!
This costume really is super easy to throw together and anything that can be re-purposed and worn again is a home run in my book! Just like the tights my girls can re-wear from the DIY Octopus Costume and the umbrella from our Jellyfish costume comes in handy during rainstorms, elements from this rock star costume will see life after Halloween.
My daughter and I went to Michaels and picked up a bunch of supplies that would help bring our rock star costume to life. Here is what you’ll need to create your own rock star costume:
- Pink Wig
- Lace Gloves
- Chevron Knee Socks
- Black T-shirt
- Metal Spike Jewelry Accessories
- Silver Plated Jewelry Clasp
- Black Trick-or-Treat Canvas Bag
I used my Cricut Explore and pink iron-on glitter vinyl to create make the rock star shirt.
I took the metal spike jewelry and sewed on a jewelry clasp, which I also picked up in jewelry section at Michaels. I wanted to wrap it around like a bracelet, but my daughter insisted on wearing it as a necklace, either way it works with the outfit.
Now, the only thing left to do is get dressed. Pair the rock star t-shirt with a sparkly tutu, the chevron knee socks, Converse tennis shoes, the lace gloves and of course the punk rock pink wig and your all set for trick-or-treating.
Of course, we couldn’t go trick-or-treating without a bag to put all the goodies in. I used the same rock star font and my Cricut Explore to put my daughters name on the black canvas bag to complete the outfit.
I think my little diva is ready to party like a rock star this Halloween! If you’re looking for a quick and easy homemade costume that rocks, you’ll love this DIY Rock Star Halloween costume!
