DIY Halloween Costume Awards

Halloween is only about two weeks away, so it’s time to start planning those spooky Halloween parties if you haven’t done so already! And what’s a Halloween party without a costume contest, right?!

I came up with a couple of easy, DIY Halloween costume awards. I promise these handmade badges are way cooler than the ones you can buy at the party supply store. Plus, they don’t take much time to make, and you probably even have all the supplies just lying around your house.

DIY Halloween Costume Awards


card stock
crepe paper
washi tape
a glue gun
2″-2.5″ circle punches,
glue dots

I made three different versions of the award.

Wondering what to do with some of that washi tape you’ve collected? Make some cute washi tape Halloween ribbons with it…

There’s a great tutorial for DIY washi tape ribbon awards¬†over on Oh My Handmade.

You can also make some simple Halloween costume awards using paper medallions…

There’s a great tutorial for making paper medallions on The Shabby Nest. Once the medallions are made, simply cut some circles out of card stock, add the printable award circle and attach your ribbons using glue dots.

These Halloween costume awards are made out of crepe paper, cardstock circles and ribbon…

Once Wed has a great tutorial for making the crepe paper medallions.

If you’d like the ready-made printable Halloween costume award circles, head on over to my blog for the download!

Obviously my awards are pretty simple, but you can easily add more layers of cardstock circles, crepe paper and washi tape to make your awards even more fancy!

So I’m curious…how many of you enjoy dressing up for the Halloween parties? To be honest, dressing up isn’t my favorite thing because I can never think of something cute and creative to be.
