Happy Halloween, everyone! If you’re like me, you’ve put off on making a costume until today and now you’re scrambling to make something. If you’re even more like me, maybe you grabbed an old sheriff badge you found in your closet and slapped it on a plaid shirt and called yourself a cowboy. That’s one (uncreative) form of reuse.

2. Take an old hoodie, give it some eyes and teeth, and you can be your favorite animal or monster [via Blueberry Junkie]
3. Make a vest from fabric scraps, put on an old cowboy hat and then put that badge on. Now you’re Sheriff Kevin of the Dakota Territory.
And let’s go a step further and say you are having people over but haven’t thought about decorations. What do
