DIY Halloween costumes for food lovers

If you’re late getting your Halloween costume put together, then this blog post is for you. If the reason you’re late is because you’ve been too busy savoring delicious fall foods, then this blog post is definitely for you. And if recently moved and have cardboard boxes scattered about your new home, then well … you get the picture by now.

Sure, you could run to your local costume shop to pick up a food-inspired costume, but where’s the fun in that? You have the whole weekend to get arts-and-craftsy, and most of these DIY Halloween costumes will take you less than 30 minutes.

If you prefer a sweet pie, it’s the perfect time of year for pumpkin. Of course, pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple, but pumpkin spice everything is on the market as early as September 1 nowadays.

Maybe your favorite thing about fall isn’t pumpkin pie. Maybe it’s watching scary movies, visiting haunted houses, or the ghosts, ghouls, and monsters. And who doesn’t love Cookie Monster? Oh, and chocolate chip cookies, too!
