Want to win “best costume” at your Halloween get-together? This DIY avocado costume is a shoo-in. Think about it: Avocados are scary good, right? And they’re the life of the party! From guacamole geeks to avocado addicts, everybody knows avocados equal good times.
You don’t need much to look frighteningly clever for trick or treat. An avocado Halloween costume only takes a few household materials to create. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making your own DIY avocado Halloween costume, no sewing or super glue required. It’s easy enough for (supervised) kids to create, and you can probably get it done within one hour. So, what’re you waiting for? Let’s go!
It’s that easy!
If you’re feeling extra creative, here are a few more spooktacular ways to wear your avocado.
Satisfy your monster appetite and that of those judging the costume contest (nudge, nudge) by bribing — er, bringing — Halloween-themed guacamole, like single-serving Witch Hat Guac and Guac-o’-Lanterns or a boo-tiful big batch of Spiderweb Guacamole Dip!
Sweeten the holiday by whipping together some Avocado Halloween Pumpkin Balls made with avocado, rolled oats, and peanut butter. They’re easy enough to make with the kids before party time. Add a little sugar on top with Halloween Blondies designed to look like Frankenstein’s monster. His signature green hue is thanks to … the avocado inside!
A DIY Halloween is the best kind — because making your costume, treats, and décor is half the fun! If you’re having a gaggle of little ghouls come to your home for Halloween, DIY crafts are good activities for pre-trick or treating entertainment. Plus, kiddos get to come home with a little memento of their celebration.
These avocado peel sailboats will liven up any old apple bobbing contest. And keep your carving tools handy after making your jack-o’-lanterns. You can use them again to carve avocado pits into one-of-a-kind creations that will last for years to come. Paint or stain them how you please for use as décor, jewelry, keychains, and more.
While this DIY guide for making an avocado costume is great for Halloween, remember that Avocados From Mexico are always in season. So while you’re waiting for Halloween to roll around, these avocado recipes will still be available year-round. Happy Halloween!
