If your baby loves cats, this is the obvious choice. And it never gets old. If you’re on a budget, forgo the tutu and attach strips from bin bags to baby gro or T-shirt. [Pinterest via Babble]
The Lego man
Undeniably cute and really simple to make (even for DIY amateurs), all you need to do is cut the arms off a plain long-sleeved top and stick circular discs painted the same shade onto the top and trousers. Easy! [Pinterest]
Spag bol baby
Perfect if you’re not that creatively-inclined, this is the outfit for you. Or your baby, should we say. Simply glue yellow wool all over a white hat and baby grow, paint some foam balls brown and tah dah – you’ll have served up one very cute baby. [Pinterest via brandyjblog.com]
This outfit ticks all the boxes. It’s cheap to make, doesn’t require any skill with a needle and looks fantastic. C’est manifique! [Pinterest via delightfulorder.blogspot.com]
Crazy cat lady
OK, so this outfit may cause some serious embarrassment later in life, but it will get some laughs. If you’re using your toddler’s toys, use safety pins to attach them to your little one’s dressing gown, so they stay put but don’t get ruined. [Pinterest via costume-works.com]

If your little one isn’t a fan of masks, a little face paint is a fun alternative. Team it with a messy hair ‘do (easy for toddlers to achieve) and a brown outfit and you’ll one sweet little werewolf. [Pinterest]
This is genius. And possibly the cheapest Halloween costume we’ve come across yet. Plus, your tot will love twirling the umbrella around while trick or treating. [Pinterest via Buzzfeed]
Bring this classic childhood character to life with this cleverly put-together outfit. You’ll probably find your tot already has stripy tights or leggings and a smock dress and, if on a budget, you can always cut the pinafore out of paper or lace. [Pinterest via alovelylark.com]
If you’ve got some time spare and don’t mind an ever so slightly grueling art project, this is the costume for you. And it’s definitely eye-catching! Cue yards of tissue paper… [Pinterest via housewifenotes.com]
Old lady baby
Cute AND funny this outfit is probably our favourite. The hardest part will probably be finding a wig small enough for your baby’s tiny head – as an alternative you could stick cotton wool balls to a baby hat. [Pinterest]
If you get to Halloween and realise you haven’t yet got an outfit for your baby sorted, then this is your best bet. Plus, it’s bound to get some laughs from the other parents on trick or treating duty. [Pinterest]
The Up! outfit
Fans of Up! will appreciate just how adorable this childish take on the film’s main character is. And it’s really easy for you to piece together, too. [Pinterest]
This outfit may require a little more sourcing than some of the others, but it’s definitely unique! [Pinterest via bloglovin.com]
