DIY Punny Halloween Costumes

I searched the internet for something fun and easy to be for Halloween since we are having a Halloween party at my work. I know I wanted to stick out and be different, so I looked at everything and anything I could find. That’s where I decided to be “HOLY COW”!

How To Be Holy Cow


  • White shirt
  • Black fabric paint
  • Cow ears/halo headband
  • Angel wings

Now, I am not a very good at taking pictures so, I am going to do my best to explain what I did.

Step 1 – Lay out your white shirt and put some cardboard on the inside so that the paint doesn’t bleed

Step 2 – Sketch out where you want your spots to be

Step 3 – Start filling in your spots with the black fabric paint. (I don’t recommend the black spray paint, it gets everyone – I know this from experience!)

Step 4 – Let it dry!

On most of the tutorials, I found that people were making their own halo. Well, I was not that talented and was lucky enough to find angel wings with a halo headband in the package. But, I didn’t want just a halo, I want the cow ears also. So, I went to my local Wal-mart and found cow ears with a tail and bow-tie in the children’s section.

Viola, a Holy Cow Costume!

How To Be SUPER Glue

I did not find this costume idea anywhere! It popped into my head one day when I was looking for super glue, and I thought why not make it into a superhero costume. Get it, SUPER Glue, like Superman?

No, ok let me explain what you need!


  • White shirt, or any color it really doesn’t matter
  • Fabric paint, pick a color that will work with the shirt color you pick
  • glue
  • glitter and glitter glue
  • a pillowcase, or something that will work as a cape

Nope, I don’t have pictures of the process so, here are my steps!

Step 1 – Lay out your shirt with cardboard inside

Step 2 – Sketch out the words Super Glue

Step 3 – Paint over the letters (I used a sponge)

Step 4 – Lightly cover the S & G in glue and sprinkle the glitter (it’s messy so take caution)

Step 5 – When I learned the glitter got everywhere, I took glitter glue and spread it over the rest of the letters (it was way less messy!)

Step 6 – Let it dry, shake off excess glitter!

Kabaam, Super Glue!
