Halloween Costumes with Bandanas
let's get into the DIY Halloween costumes built around bandanas.
Whether you're short on money, short on time, or just like the
satisfaction of making things yourself, you can't go wrong building
costumes around the accessory you probably already have – the
bandana. The reason? "With a simple bandana, you can create a

"Wear your hair down and add curls if you can." Wrap a bandana around your head, and tie it at the side, with "the knot on the side of your head. Wear a long skirt and a flowing shirt if you have them. Loosen up your belt and let it hang around your waist over your skirt to give it more of a Bohemian look. If you have gold jewelry or hoop earrings, wear them. You don’t need the marker on this one, unless you’re super creative and want to draw on some gypsy jewelry."
