Depending on how much time you have, store-bought costumes can be worth the splurge; aisles are bound to be brimming with witch hats, brooms, capes, and more this time of year. But if you're feeling crafty, it's actually quite easy to concoct a magical homemade costume yourself.

Get as ambitious as you want when making a witch costume for toddlers or girls. Fashion a witch hat from felt and hot glue, and tie twigs and straw together with twine to craft a broomstick. Tailor the look to the type of witch you want: Now's the chance to show off your wicked personality.

Throwing together a last-minute look? Pull a black dress out of the closet, buy inexpensive accessories, and call it a day. She'll be bewitching either way!
