Hey girl, feeling a little lazy this Halloween? Yeah, us too. Lucky for all of us, we have the perfect costume idea on deck: Halloween crowns! We’re obsessed with them because they’re so pretty, and with just a few articles of clothing you already own, they make an amazing costume.
What makes Halloween crowns so great is that they’re easy to make (or just buy, if we’re being honest), so you won’t drive yourself crazy trying to sew your own Wonder Woman outfit for the fourth year in a row. Plus, everyone from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Emily VanCamp has sported the “crown + regular clothes = costume” combo in recent years — so you know you’re in good company.
