Halloween is coming! Our family has really grown to LOVE Halloween over the years. Even our oldest, Kye, is STILL all about some family Halloween costume ideas.
The past few years we’ve really gone all out with our diy family costumes and the kids like to keep them a surprise until Halloween 😉
It is something we enjoy planning together as a family and I enjoy the “hunt” to make the costumes come to life. Sometimes I buy pre-made stuff, but usually, I like a solid DIY look!
I thought it’d be fun to do a round-up of all of our diy family Halloween costumes over the years to help inspire anyone who may be brainstorming some family Halloween costume ideas… I’ve even included some of our family and friends who have also joined the creative costume club!
If you need family Halloween theme ideas, I’ve got you covered for that perfect costume this year! 🙂

DIY Family Halloween Costumes Ideas: Disney and Pixar!
A LOT of our inspiration comes from Disney. We love the theme parks, we love the movies, we are a proud Disney family 😉
So of course many of our family costumes would revolve around Disney and/or Pixar movies! We love getting the entire family involved for our diy Halloween costumes. Usually we plan them pretty well in advance but sometimes the last-minute Halloween costume can be the most fun!
If you’re looking for DIY Disney costume ideas only, I have a costume round-up exclusively for fellow Disney fans!
Toy Story Family Halloween Costumes
Monsters Inc Family Themed Halloween Costumes
(Sully, Mike, Boo, Roz and Celia)
Peter Pan Family Costumes
We even had Smee and the crocodile!
Disney’s the Fab Five Costumes
Tess was my littlest baby at Halloween so I don’t have a ton of experience with baby halloween costumes! Bless her heart her first Halloween she was dressed like Donald Duck 😉
The Incredibles Family Costumes
The Incredibles is an excellent choice for families of all sizes!
Moana Family Halloween Costume Ideas
Disney’s Moana-themed costumes with lots of DIY made a great family Halloween costume idea!
Brave Family Halloween Costumes
Costumes inspired by Disney’s Brave, featuring Princess Merida, the triplets, and more!
Wreck-It Ralph Family Halloween Costume Ideas
Wreck-It Ralph/Ralph Breaks the Internet costumes for the whole family!
Ducktales Halloween Costumes
Scrooge McDuck, Della Duck, Webby Vanderquack, and of course, Dewey, Huey, and Louie! This might be my favorite cohesive group costume yet! I loved it because ALL of the kids knew their characters and owned their looks and were so hands-on in choosing each element of the diy costumes.
We have a large family and love when the whole gang gets to participate in a fun theme!
Cruella – 101 Dalmatians Family Costumes
We had so much fun putting together our version of the classic 1010 Dalmatians movie with a Cruella twist!
My girls and I were each dressed up as a different version of Cruella De Vil and of course we had Horace and Jasper in the crew – and you can’t forget the little cutie Dalmatian!
This was among our personal best family Halloween costume ideas! Every member of the family got involved and played their part so well.
Family Aladdin Costume Ideas
Our magic carpet blanket really came in handy for this themed costume – we all enjoyed playing our different roles from Aladdin. Including Aladdin, Genie, Jafar, Rajah, Jasmine and Abu!
This was a fun family costume you won’t see in costume stores as it gave us a chance to put together a blend of diy family Halloween costumes with some store-bought items as well.
Mary Poppins was a themed birthday party we did for my daughter and it’d also make for an adorable Halloween costume with many of the pieces easily found at a local thrift store!
Finding Nemo Family Costumes
Nemo, Darla and the Scuba Diver (Finding Nemo) Such a cute family costume idea!
The Little Mermaid Family Costumes
Snow White and Dwarfs
My youngest daughter dressed up as Snow White complete with red bow while my older daughter dressed up as the evil stepmother “witch” and I tossed on this cute Happy shirt with some leggings and a beanie to be a comfortable dwarf!
The great thing about a Snow White theme is that you can add in as many dwarfs as you’d like – who needs complicated costumes?
More Easy Halloween Costume Ideas
Of course not every costume is always Disney-themed and often we can count on a fun last minute costume creation from the extended member of the family – the grandparents!
Jack and Jill
Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner
Our family has even had a pregnancy announcement incorporated into a costume! How cute is this from when Casey was pregnant with Carter? The best part of this costume was getting to learn the exciting baby news!
Gotta love Flo – an excellent last-minute Halloween costume idea.
My little lion! I loved this adorable costume on him.
An easy, simple but still fun go-to costume is pirates!
And used the theme again for his pirate themed party – the only thing missing was some treasure!
When I was pregnant with Britt I was SO PUMPED to have a BELLY at Halloween and incorporated it into my costume! An easy costume that was also very comfortable for my pregnant belly.
Family Halloween Costumes Ideas: Final Thoughts
We have SO much fun planning our family costumes every year and I KNOW what yall are thinking. Where is the Harry Potter theme? How have y’all NOT done Star Wars yet? BOTH are coming… eventually… I keep putting them off because I feel like they are themes that EVERYONE in our family will ALWAYS enjoy getting to dress up as and I want to wait until Spear is fully old enough to be excited and into it like the older ones will be 🙂
