At Goodwill, we love a creative and hand-made costume! We scoured the internet and found these three no-sew DIY costumes that can be made easily with finds from Goodwill. Follow the directions step-by-step, or use them as a starting point for your own creative ideas.

Get Batty!

Bats and Halloween go together like peanut butter and jelly! Go with a simple version of a classic - all you need for this look is:

  • 1-1/2 yards black fabric  (cotton, jersey knit, lace or sequins work well; look for the color of the week to purchase your fabric source at half price at Goodwill)
  • A classic little black dress
  • 6 inches of 1/8-inch elastic (any color)
  • Headband
  • Thick black fabric (leather, felt or even a thick black cotton work)
  • Hot glue
