DIY Halloween Costume: Pirate

Halloween is only a few weeks away and I know that kids (and adults) are trying to figure out what to be this year.  There is such a wide variety Halloween costumes making it difficult to choose.  Have you thought about making your Halloween costume this year?

I didn't want to spend the money on a traditional pirate costume, so I used my creativity and came up with a very frugal pirate costume!

I found a long sleeve button up shirt at Target on clearance that actually had skulls and swords on it that was absolutely perfect! It was 75% off and I got it for $2.49!

I bought an eye patch that came with an earring for $1.25.

I also got a hat for $2.50 and a hook for $1.

He already had a pair of pants with holes in both knees - Free!

I cut the bottom of the shirt off as well as the sleeves, making it actually fit him as it was a size 16. I cut jagged edges along the bottom. I also cut the jeans off right above the knee and did jagged edges on those as well!

Total price of the outfit and accessories: $7.24

His Pirate Cuteness: Priceless!
