COUPLES: Peanut Butter and Jelly costume

Now, here’s a clever DIY couple costume idea… dress up as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! The best part is that all you need to do is make 2 pieces of bread and strap it to your back! Then one person wears all brown and one person wears all purple or red.  Personally, I’d be raspberry jam! Yum and cute!

COUPLES: Saved by the bell costume

As a child of the 90’s, I loved the TV show, Saved by the Bell! This Saved by the Bell costume would be a simple couples costume would be pretty easy to throw together last minute. For the Kelly costume, if you have long brown hair, your one stop ahead of the gang! Then raid your closet  for a jean jacket and a tight floral skirt. As for Zach, a pair of acid washed jeans and a striped tee doest he trick! If nothing else, take a trip to a thrift store for some awesome 90s clothes. That giant portable phone is a must for the Zach Morris costume!

COUPLES: If you give a mouse a cookie costume

I love the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie… and what a fun costume idea to do with a friend, significant other or even a mom/baby costume! The DIY mouse costume is made mostly out of felt, and the DIY cookie costume is made out of a brown paper bag. So not only is the idea adorable, one of the costumes is even recycled!

COUPLES: DIY Popeye and Olive Oyl Costumes

Morena’s Corner used things from her closet to whip up DIY Popeye and Olive Oyl costumes for her and her husband. For Olive Oyl, she attached pieces of lace to the collar and sleeves of a red long sleeved t-shirt. Popeyes costume also started as a blue t-shirt with yellow felt buttons she sewed on. I love how she made the muscles out of panty hose and the pipe from a corn on the cob!

COUPLES: DIY grumpy old couple costume

You definitely need a little attitude to pull off Morena’s Corner’s grumpy old man and woman costume! Pick up most of the pieces you need at a local thrift store. For the man, all you need is a vintage button-down and trousers; to make the look more authentic, leave the fly down and pull a little bit of the shirt through. For the woman, an old house coat or dress works fine. She used bubble wrap to create curves in all the right places!
