DIY Addams Family Costumes

It’s been 28 years since The Addams Family has been theaters and just in time for Halloween, The Addams Family and Addams Family Values is available on Blu-ray in a 2-movie collection. And on top of that the new Meet The Addams movie is now playing in theaters. To celebrate all of this, I’m sharing these Addams Family DIY Halloween costumes that makes a great group costume idea for Halloween.

how to make a cousin it candy bucket


Take out the current handle on the pumpkin bucket.

Apply hot glue around the edge of the pumpkin bucket and apply the mop head to make it look like a wig draping over it.

Cut a circle in the top of the hat and glue the hat on top of the bucket and mop head.

Poke a hole on each side of the top hat and feed a string through the bucket holes and the top hat and leave it long enough to carry around.

Poke 2 holes where the eyes are on the bucket big enough to fit the sunglasses in. You may need to hot glue them to keep them in.

Your Cousin It bucket is ready to take around trick or treating or can even be used to pass out candy.

DIY Addams Family Costumes


When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead.  But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester’s uncommonly “normal” behavior. Could this Fester be a fake, part of an evil scheme to raid the Addams fortune?


It’s love at first fright when Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new addition to the Addams household — Pubert, their soft, cuddly, mustachioed baby boy. As Fester (Christopher Lloyd) falls hard for voluptuous nanny Debbie Jilinksy (Joan Cusack), Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) discover she’s a black-widow murderess who plans to add Fester to her collection of dead husbands.  ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES is debuting on Blu-ray for the first time.
