child in superhero costume with words Fun Bible-Themed Christian Halloween CostumesHalloween is an exciting time for kids and adults to dress up, be with friends, and eat waayyy too much candy!

But it can also be a very stressful time choosing a costume that is appropriate, affordable, and doesn’t take forever to assemble.

While some costumes are inexpensive, they can be so detailed and time-consuming to assemble, especially if you’re going to more than one Halloween event.

On the other hand, no one really wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a costume their kids will get super dirty and outgrow before the next year!

But most importantly, as Christians, we are called to shine God’s light and be an example of Him to others.

That means, if you choose to celebrate Halloween, it’s important that your costumes (and decorations) don’t hinder your reputation or witness to non-Christians.

The good news is that it’s 100% possible to create (or purchase) a costume that is God-honoring and inexpensive, even if you’re running short on time!

That’s why, in this post, we’re sharing over 20 fun (and easy) Christian Halloween costume ideas for you to choose from.

DIY Christian Halloween Costumes


Fruits of the Spirit T-Shirt Costumes


1. Fruits of the Spirit T-Shirts

This Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23 is the PERFECT quick Christian Halloween costume for friends or family. Can’t you just see all of these Fruits of the Spirit together at your church’s trunk-or-treat festival?

To make these costumes from Frugal Coupon Living, start by typing out and printing each of the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) in large uppercase letters.

Next, each person can choose a fruit they want to represent and wear a colored shirt that matches that fruit. (Think strawberries, grapes, bananas, kiwis, watermelons, oranges, peaches, cherries, or pineapples.)

You can either use a Sharpie and draw seeds, or use scissors and cut out the pattern of seeds (be sure to wear a white or black shirt underneath to highlight the seeds).

To finish these Christian Halloween costumes, grab a green headband, bow, or hat and you’re all set!


Materials You’ll Need:


Joseph Coat of Many Colors


2. Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors

This Christian Halloween costume idea from Susan’s Homeschool Blog is a great opportunity for your older kids to get involved and create their own!

To make this costume, use a roll of brown packing paper or teacher’s bulletin board paper – something durable enough to walk around in and not tear. You’ll also need scissors, a Sharpie black marker, a ruler, crayons, and safety pins.

Next, measure the height of the person who will be wearing the coat by holding the paper up to their body and cutting the length close to their ankles.

Then, to make the hole at the top for the head, fold the paper in half and cut a semi-circle where the head will go through.

Now it’s time to draw the stripes of the tunic. Measure 2-3 inches for each color strip, then color the stripes in a rainbow pattern, or however you want.

When you’re ready, have the child put the coat on over their head and safety pin the sides of the poncho together creating a tunic.

Finally, fold the shoulders of the poncho down over the child so they form a tunic (and not a scarecrow costume.) 😁


Materials You’ll Need:


Mary Costume


3.  Mary and Baby Jesus

If you celebrate All Saints’ Day you’ll want to keep this Christian Halloween costume idea in mind.

I especially love this idea for young girls who love playing with baby dolls. What little girl wouldn’t want to carry her doll around all night AND get candy for it?

Making this costume can be as simple as wrapping fabric together, or as elaborate as sewing – it’s up to you!

Start with a blue dress or wrap a section of blue fabric around the child and tie it at the waist with a gold rope belt.

Next, take taupe fabric and drape it over the child’s shoulders like a shawl. Finally, place a blue fabric head covering over the child’s head and pin it in place as a veil.

Adding gold fabric around the neck and sleeves of this Halloween Christian costume will really take it to the next level, but it’s not necessary! Don’t forget to wrap “baby Jesus” in a blue blanket!

Easy No Sew Bible Costume


4.   No Sew Bible Patriarch Costume

This Christian Halloween costume idea from TiciaMessing.com is really unique because it provides an example of a doll and child size! If you have a kiddo who loves dressing up dolls, be sure to save this costume idea.

These household materials are inexpensive and easy to find. As an added bonus, your child can customize this Christian Halloween costume to fit a specific patriarch such as Moses, Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob with simple props!

Fruits of the Spirit Costumes


5. Fruits of the Spirit Costume

How adorable is this “Fruits of the Spirit” Christian Halloween costume idea? With a little creativity and craft supplies, you can create the perfect fruit costume for any of your Halloween events.

This design focuses on two fruits in particular, strawberries and grapes. For the DIY route, grab a red shirt, self-adhesive yellow felt, and green felt.

Cut out a large section of red felt into a poncho shape and pin the sides together to make a “shirt.” Then apply yellow teardrop seeds onto the shirt (you might want to adhere them with a hot glue gun just to make sure they are secure.)

Finally, cut out triangles of green felt and pin them together to make the leaves of the strawberry around your neck. You can top off this design with any green hat, or cut out a hat shape from felt and bobby pin it to your hair.

The grape design is SO easy! Simply purchase a purple shirt and purple balloons. Next, blow up the balloons and safety pin them to your shirt. Finally, add a purple hat to complete your ensemble.

Shepherd Costume


6. Shepherd

If you’re pressed for time AND don’t want to spend a fortune, you’ve got to try this shepherd boy Christian Halloween costume idea from Vanillajoy.com!

Just like the picture says, 10 minutes and a little DIY will have your kid ready for trick-or-treating…it’s really that simple. All you need are a few towels of different sizes, a belt, and some brown elastic or a brown headband.

To start, take the brown towel and cut a semi-circle hole in the middle for the child’s head, creating a poncho.

Use the woven belt to cinch the towel across the child’s waist, then position the ivory hand towel as a head covering over the child and use the brown elastic or cotton ribbing to hold it in place. And that’s it!

TIP – Add a hockey stick as a staff or a stuffed animal lamb to your shepherd boy Christian Halloween costume for even more fun!

Wise Men Costumes


7.  Three Wise Men

Want a simple way to get dads involved in a Christian Halloween celebration? Look no further! The three Wise Men or Magi costume may look fancy, but it’s simple and easy.

The thing I love about this costume idea is that it’s so versatile. Whatever kind of fancy-looking fabric you have on hand (or can find at the last minute) is best.

Similar to a shepherd or Mary costume, drape the fabric around as a tunic and tie it with a gold belt or other fancy-looking cinches. Don’t forget a coat of purple or gold shiny fabric!

Finally, use a head covering with elastic, or check out this tutorial for creating the perfect Wise Man hat. You can also grab these gold, Frankincense, and myrrh boxes to complete the costume.

Just grab some paper and draw flames (or grab this flame backdrop), then attach the flames to your wreath. Adding a camouflage or black cardigan will help your burning bush Christian Halloween costume stand out!

Finally, finish with a leaf headpiece and you’re ready to party.
