Our family loves doing a themed Halloween costume. Dressing up in Where’s Waldo costumes was the easiest family Halloween costume ideas we did.

I’thrifted and DIYed our family costumes (which I break down at the end of this post), but I’ve rounded up the most inexpensive options in case you don’t have the time or energy to put together your own.

WHERE’S WALDO DIY COSTUME : SHIRTS
You can find a Waldo costume easily at a thrift store. You may be lucky and score an official Where’s Wally costume, but any red and white striped shirt will do.
My husband’s was an official Waldo shirt, but it’s really easy to find red and white rugby striped shirts that will work just as well.
Total for shirts= $10

The Where’s Waldo glasses are from Dollar Tree. For just $1 each, you can punch out the paper inserts for thick rimmed glasses.
