Want a super easy last minute Halloween costume idea? These PANTONE color chips can be made in less than 30 minutes’ time. Plus they’re super affordable. All you really need is a piece of color posterboard and some simple office materials. Read more below on how to create this cute and colorful costume in no time!

Pantone Color DIY Costume – Materials:

– Colored posterboard (we got ours at here, but you can usually find them at any art or craft stores)

– Duct tape, regular tape

– String

– Printer/paper

– Xacto knife or cutter, pencil


Step 1. Cut out a portion of your posterboard on one end (ours measured 30″ long and we cut out 8″).

Step 2. Flip the portion you cut out so the back side (white part) is showing against the colored portion. Duct tape securely at the cut seams.

Step 3. Print out PANTONE and the corresponding color number from your printer. Tape to the white part of your posterboard.

Step 4. Punch two holes at the top and thread yarn or string through. You’re done!

Aren’t these fun? They’d make such cute family or group Halloween costumes!

Pair these with your favorite matching colored pajamas if you have them. We used ours from Primary.
