This is another idea that may seem silly at first, but this ketchup and mustard pairing is the perfect costume for best friends, couples, or even siblings! The easy-to-follow DIY instructions note red or yellow dresses in its list of supplies, but one of the biggest perks of this costume is that it can work with even just a red or yellow t-shirt!

Scrabble tiles are easy to make since you only need a square piece of cardboard, a permanent marker, a hole puncher, and some string. While the idea may seem boring at first, it’s actually a great group costume idea, since you can spell out something funny or spooky with your entourage. The biggest plus: this might just be the most budget-friendly costume you can find!

Next on the list is dominos–and no, we don’t mean pizza! We’re talking about the tile-based game that we all played when we were kids! This is a fun costume idea and it’s easy to make as well! All you need is white felt, but if you’re really in a pinch for time, you can use an old white t-shirt or fabric and cut out the circles that will be used as the pips. After that, you can either use double-tape to stick the pips to a black ensemble or if you’re handy with a needle and thread you can sew them on as well.
