The Best 3-Person Family Halloween Costume

By far my favorite Halloween costume we have done to this point has been our 3 Amigos Costumes. With just a little planning ahead, we were able to find all of our costume pieces at thrift stores and spent only $20 total for all 3 of us!

DIY 3 Amigos Costume for Halloween

^This little amigo was the star of the show. Seriously. How cute is he? I’m so glad we found a miniature sombrero that fit him perfectly.

How To Make 3 Amigos Costumes

  1. Spray paint the sombreros black, if they aren’t already.
  2. Using glitter glue, create patterns on the black pants and jacket.
  3. Cut a cumberbund for the waist and necktie to fit each person.
  4. Cut or alter the jackets slightly so that they are short. Apply a glitter glue pattern to the jacket as well.


Just Remember:

Wherever there is injustice, you will find us.
Wherever there is suffering, we’ll be there.
Wherever liberty is threatened, you will find…

The 3 Amigos!

You'll love...

My husband and I were watching “The Three Amigos” tonight and he said that’s what we should be for Halloween next year (we have a 3 year old son). Where did you get your costumes?????
