Halloween is just days away. If you’re last minute like me, like to be creative, or just don’t feel like forking over big bucks on a costume everyone else will be wearing then try a home-made costume. Why buy when you can DIY? That’s what a number of celebs have been doing.

Vanessa Hudgens recently rocked a short, dark wig and white collared shirt and went as Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction.

Hilary Duff is a mom that’s keeping it classic when crafting a costume for her kid and opted to make a ghost costume for her son Luca, sharing this snap to Instagram.

Leave it to Lauren Conrad to come up with the a super-chic and adorable DIY halloween costume that’s fit for a group — party animals. Wear party attire, like a satin dress, and add some animal accessories, like a an antler headband or cat ears.

I personally love to do the DIY Halloween costume route.  It’s inexpensive, creative, and totally customizable. I may steal Lauren Conrad’s idea — so eat to throw together and so adorable. I’m also considering wearing all black and making a fake sack of money to be a bank robber, or pencil in my eyebrows to look like Frida Kahlo. Another easy one, a lumberjack. Boots, jeans, a flannel shirt, suspenders and possibly a fake beard (or scruff drawn on with eyeliner) are the ingredients to this easy DIY Halloween costume.

In the past I’ve created a lot of my own costumes (80’s prom queen, witch, scarecrow, cowgirl, 80’s groupie, waitress, flapper, hippie, Tom Cruise in “Risky Business”, boy scout) and have shopped for lots of the items via my own closet, borrowing friends and family, consignment shops and stores like Wal-Mart and CVS.   Do you like to DIY your costume?
