Of all the Halloween costume ideas to choose from every year, a few reign as all-time classics. You'll have your various incarnations of ghosts, vampires, and zombies, of course. But if you really want to cast a spell over the neighborhood this Halloween, try one of these super cute DIY witch costumes. The best part of witch costumes is the many different routes you can take them! You can go the pop-culture route with TV and movie witches (you'll find familiar witch names like Hermione and Elphaba among the options!), or opt for a more conceptual version that's easy to put together—all a witch needs is a pointed black hat and broom!

If you love Disney costumes, there's an idea for fabulous homemade options including a devilish Ursula outfit or inspiration for a Scarlet Witch ensemble. For anyone looking for a more modern witch costume, you'll want to see the DIYs inspired by Fiona Goode from American Horror Story or Sabrina from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. These witch costumes for kids and adults also make for fantastic last-minute costumes because most of them only require a few items you can order online or find at your local Halloween store. If you still need help deciding, you should watch these witch movies or read these magical witch quotes to find which witch is right for you. 😉
