Now that Halloween is around the corner, it’s time to brainstorm affordable ways to dress up. After all, like most holidays, joining the festivities can cost a pretty penny. But thanks to Halloween costumes from Target that you can get for under $10, it’s possible to pull it off on a budget — I promise. It’s all about getting creative with what you already have. And with the right accessories, you can have an instant costume.
Besides, many easy Halloween costumes can be created with clothes from your own closet. Often, accessories and masks will do all the work for you, like the classic black cat or witch costume. Don’t forget to have fun with your hair and makeup, too. Little details like whiskers or red lips can go a long way.
This list of ideas is perfect if you want to save money for pumpkin carving parties or traditional fall activities. Personally, I prefer simple and inexpensive Halloween costumes so I can save for spooky décor items like pumpkins, candles, and decorative skulls. And as you can imagine, Target doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the Halloween steals and deals. There are so many affordable costumes and accessories to choose from.
