Squirrel Baby Halloween Costume
Just one look at the tail on this baby squirrel costume, crafted by Mary Kate Moon’s mother, and it’s clear why it has a spot on our list of the best baby Halloween costumes. (You can watch it in action here.) To tackle this costume, find a big piece of furry fabric, fold it in half and cut it into an S-shape. Then fill it with cotton and sew it closed. Do the same thing with two little triangular pieces for ears, then sew them onto a gray onesie (with a hood, for easy ear-adding).

If you’re going for a farm theme, like Molly Hunt of Little Iris Clothing, and want to dress baby like a chicken, you really only need two things: a brown hooded onesie (to attach the beak and comb) and lots of feathers.

'Tis the season for pumpkin spice lattes! That’s exactly what Jules of Dear June thought when she made this adorable costume for her daughter. What you need: Some beige fabric to sew the body of the cup, green fabric markers for decorating (or a thick printout you can pin for the Starbucks sign) and enough white fabric to create that ruffle. The finishing touch? A headband decorated with a whipped cream-filled lid, a couple cinnamon sticks and a few of the company’s signature green straws.
