Looking for quick, inexpensive DIY couples costume ideas?  I’m sharing some of my favorite past costumes here.  Read on to learn how easy it is to put together a costume for yourself and your sweetheart!

My husband and I love to dress up for Halloween, but we usually don’t start planning until the last minute.  Here are some of our favorite past costumes that we threw together quickly for little to no cost!

 The Addams Family
We pulled clothes from our closets and painted our faces white.  The only purchase I had to make was the black wig.  I enjoyed being called “Cara Mia” all night!


People of Walmart
This costume literally was put together at the last minute.  Like one hour before trick or treaters showed up.  Those are my pajamas and robe.  I blacked out my tooth and drew on some zits.  My husband is wearing a Jack Sparrow bandana/wig from the kid’s costume box.  I had fun opening the door and startling trick or treaters by yelling “Whadya want??”  My husband ran around like a 90s hair band wanna be.  Yes, we crack ourselves up.

Medusa and Statue
The link will show you how I made this costume with dollar items.  You could make this a couples costume by turning your partner into a statue!

And this year?
Well, I’m still working on our Halloween costumes, but I’ll give you a hint.
Our dog is named “Nacho” after a very funny Jack Black character.
That movie is our inspiration this Halloween.  🙂
