1. Farmer

A farmer is a very easy sustainable Halloween costume to make. Wear some overalls, or even just jeans, a plaid woven top, and some boots. If you have a dog, throw a bandana on them and they are your farm dog! I think I’m going to be a farmer this year.

2. Candy Corn

This sustainable Halloween costume was one that I wore one year when I worked at Roxy and I had no costume planned. I had these awesome orange Roxy jeans, and I wore a yellow tee shirt, and a white hat. It was perfect and easy! Plus, I love candy corn so it was an amazing costume to go as a candy corn!

3. Mushroom

This sustainable Halloween costume hails from my mom as she made this costume one Halloween when I was upset she didn’t have a costume! This homemade Halloween costume is very easy to make, I and I bet you already have these things at home. Make this easy sustainable Halloween costume by first finding an umbrella. Wear pants and a top that matches the color of the umbrella, my mom wore white as we had a white umbrella. Use construction paper of any color and cut out circles. Use double stick tape to tape the circles onto the umbrella. You are now a mushroom.

4. Baker

A baker is a very easy sustainable Halloween costume! You can literally wear anything, so long as you throw an apron on! When I'm baking, I'm usually in jeans a tee shirt. Carry a whisk or a spatula with you and stick it in the pocket of your apron. Extra props if you carry around some freshly baked cookies and hand them out. Shop my Butter College Organic T Shirt to complete your look!

5. Green Bean

Be a green bean by wearing all green! This is a very easy sustainable Halloween costume, plus it’s food – which is why I love this idea. This would be great for kids, as if they have a matching green pajama set, then it would work perfectly. Throw on a green hat, and you’re good to go.

6. Milk Man (or woman)

Wear white pants (shorts or skirt) along with a white button down shirt. If you have a black or blue bow tie, then add that too! Add a white hat, and carry around a glass jug of milk. Not sure where to find one? Make sure to pick up a milk jug from Straus Family Creamery – the milk will be totally worth it too!

7. Florist

If you have an apron, throw it on over any clothing you want. Add some flowers from your garden into your pockets, and you are a florist!

8. 80s Personal Trainer

I used this easy sustainable Halloween costume idea one year when we lived down at the beach. I had no costume, and we were invited to a Halloween party last minute, so I threw this one together at the last minute and it was epic!

To make an 80s Personal Trainer Halloween costume, I wore workout leggings, a one-piece bathing suit over them, some tall white socks scrunched up, running shoes, my hair in a ponytail, and a headband. Wear your most loud leggings and bathing suit as neon was big in the 80s!

9. Hippie

If you have a crop top, a tie-dyed shirt, or an allover floral print or rainbow top, then pair it with some jeans and sunglasses and you have a homemade hippie Halloween costume. Add some colorful jewelry, a flower in your hair and a headband. You can even paint or draw a flower or peace sign on your cheek for extra points.

10. Dog Walker

If you have more than one dog, then you can easily be a dog walker. Throw on some sneakers and activewear. If you have a fanny pack, make sure to put some pop bags in it. Bring your doggos and you have an easy sustainable Halloween costume that includes your dogs!
