Your little one will feel ready for spring in this whimsical twist on potted flowers. All you need is a large plastic tub, duct tape, artificial flowers, and a headband to throw it all together. Simply cut out the bottom of the plastic tub, then attach duct tape across the top like suspenders. Hot glue the flowers on the inside of the tub and across the headband, and you have yourself a ready-to-go Halloween costume.

Last-minute costumes don't need to look haphazardly thrown together. This snail costume certainly makes the cut with a cute shell constructed out of brown craft paper. All you need to do is crumple and roll a large sheet of craft paper into a spiral, tape it in place, and tape it to a square of cardboard. Attach duct tape to the cardboard like suspenders. Crumple more craft paper and attach it to a headband to finish the trick-or-treat-ready creature.

If you have a giant cardboard box hanging around, you can throw together a last-minute Halloween costume that could win any contest, like an outhouse. Simply cut out the bottom of the box, as well as a door with an iconic moon symbol cut out of the front. Insert a smaller box inside with the top and bottom cut out. Attach a toilet seat on top with hot glue. Cut out a couple of arm holes, add a roll of TP and this outhouse is ready for the streets.
