Have you heard the buzz surrounding fox costumes this Halloween? We think it must be in part due to the viral video "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say)" by Ylvis. Whatever the case, we're certainly in favor of the trend! Before your child decides to make a last-minute switch to fox ears, check out these three variations we love. These DIY fox costumes for kids range from easy to advanced. We've even spotted a great DIY fox costume for adults if you'd like to accompany your child in style while Trick-or-Treating.

Easy Does It

DIY mom Ella made this fox costume for her daughter from an orange-colored long-sleeve T-shirt, white felt, construction paper, black gloves and black pants. Trusty black eyeliner works out great for the face paint.

For Fashionistas

If your child already has an adorable wardrobe, use these pieces to your advantage as you plan your fox costume. For this look, you can dress your child in an old jacket that still fits and refashion a hooded sweater into one with felt fox ears. Add a few hand-sewn details and some cute boots, and your little fox is ready to go trick-or-treating.
