Handmade costumes are fun. They can dress like a hobo with a stick and bandana item. Carry a pillowcase for treats. Did this one year for fun at Halloween.

A hobo costume is very easy and inexpensive to make. Wear old jeans that can be cut up and smeared with dirt. Sew patches of old fabric to random spots on the jeans. Also apply the fabric to a shirt. Cut it up a bit and smear it with dirt too. Mess up your hair by teasing it ( using a comb and brushing backwards toward your scalp ) or just messing it up with your hands. Use hair spray if necessary to keep it looking horrible.

If desired, put some dirt in your hair too. Either wear miss-matched shoes with holes or an old pair of miss-matched socks on your feet. Put a tiny bit of dirt on yourself. For a treat bag on Halloween, find a long, sturdy stick and tie a piece of cloth onto it using its four corners. I hope this helped!
