Halloween Costume Ideas for a Group

When creating handmade Halloween costumes for more than one child, choosing a cohesive theme is the best way to multitask. When you create a variety of unrelated costumes, you may not be able to purchase all of the various fabrics and accessories in individual amounts. Instead of buying a bunch of buttons for just one costume or a spool of ribbon for a few inches, make full use of purchases by repeating the same costume for every child. Or, pick a theme in a similar color scheme so the same materials can be used. See our ideas for group Halloween costume patterns.
