Being a momma who likes to be on a budget, I thought about how I wanted celebrate Halloween this year. With 19 month old twins who don’t know a thing about Halloween I figured that should be an easy decision to make. Why not take advantage of this moment when I am the sole decider.  Before you know it the twins will be telling me who they want to dress up as.

I started off by searching the web for inexpensive costumes that could work for doubles. I saw cute costumes for farm animals, sesame street characters, superheroes and tons of Disney characters.  As much as I enjoyed the packaged costumes I just couldn’t fathom paying the price for them. Plus to be quite honest I’ve always been a fan of DIY and decided to take that route. Hey, I like to get crafty from time to time and tap into my creative side. So I decided to go with Pebbles & Bam Bam from the Flintstones which was quick and easy. The best part is I spent less than $15 for all the materials.

To see how I made these costumes click here for Pebbles and here for Bam Bam.

Otherwise here is a list of boy/ girl ideas I considered (and may potentially use next year). So many ideas can be added to the list but I thought these were cool DIYs.
