Mark this day in your calendars, friends. Cement today in your memory. Today is the day you’ve been waiting for…the day Damask Love shares a DIY costume project just in time for Halloween. For years, I’ve avoided Halloween costumes – mostly because they seemed too difficult and too involved. My goal is to keep things easy for you, not confuse you with a bunch of paper mache paste and sewing.

Thankfully, today’s costume is easy, it’s doable and its all in the power of your Cricut Maker. This Halloween, I’m partnering with my peeps at Cricut to create a costume perfect for your family – and to prove the 100% cuteness of this costume trio, I’ve enlisted the help of my very own. You’ll have to insert your own next of kin.

Keep reading to learn all the tips and tricks for creating these costumes. It’s easy. Trust me.  Super heroes don’t lie.

To create your costume, you’ll need to start with the basics…thermal pajamas for men, women and kids.  You’re welcome. I’ve figured out how you can wear pajamas all day!

To create the superhero “shoes” – I grabbed coordinating pairs of soccer socks, and added a strip of white duct tape! How easy! Pull the socks over your shoes for a coordinated head to toe look – but you’ll definitely want to trash them at the end of the night after walking around.

For the Super Busy Mom costume, I added a simple white apron since I’m the chef in the family!

With the basics covered, it’s time to pull out your Cricut Maker to create all the decorations and accessories for your family of superheroes. For each element of the costumes, I shopped JOANN since I can grab a ton of different Cricut supplies, fabric and crafting must-haves in one place!


Super Mom Tiara

  • Gold Glitter Craft Foam
  • White Cardstock
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hole Punch/Crop-a-Dile
  1. Open the Cricut Project HERE
  2. Cut tiara shape from craft foam using the Rotary Blade
  3. Cut the “M” letter from white cardstock and adhere with hot glue
  4. Punch holes on either end of the tiara and thread ribbon through so you can tie it on like a headband.

Super Mom Accessories

  • Colored cardstock
  • Tape runner or other adhesive
  1. Open the Cricut Project HERE
  2. Cut the accessory shapes from cardstock and adhere with tape runner


Super Dad Accessories

  1. Open the Cricut Project HERE
  2. Cut the accessory shapes from cardstock and printable sticker paper and adhere with tape runner

Super Dad Briefcase

I love this briefcase! I used an old box to create the briefcase by covering it with kraft butcher paper. To finish it off with a clever, punny image, you’ll need:

  1. Open the Cricut Project HERE
  2. Print then cut the detergent bottle label from sticker paper
  3. Cut the bottle from cardstock
  4. Adhere bottle with tape runner, then top off with the printed sticker paper label


Family Super Hero Shields

No superhero costume is complete without a shield emblazoned on the shirt and cape! To create the capes, I simply cut some felt that I grabbed from JOANN. The capes were attached to the shoulders of each shirt using a bit of Sticky Velcro. To make the capes and shirt shields, you’ll need:

  1. Open the shirt shields HERE and open the cape shields HERE
  2. Use your Cricut EasyPress to adhere the images onto the shirts and capes

Family Felt Eyemasks and Cuffs

  1. Use the rotary blade to cut all the shapes from felt.
  2. For the cuffs, use felt glue to adhere the stars, then use Sticky Back Velcro to secure them around your wrists
  3. For the eye masks, use the Crop-a-dile with Eyelet Kit to punch holes and set eyelets at each end. Tie on ribbon or elastic to make the masks easy and comfortable to wear.
