Halloween is right around the corner, but you might be scrambling for a last-minute costume. Good news: the key to a cheap, last-minute Halloween costume could already be laying around your home.

While a run-in with a jellyfish may sound scary, but dressing up like one won't sting you or your budget. All you need is a clear umbrella and some crepe paper. Simply tape or glue eyes in the front and the tentacles along the sides. Voila! You're a jellyfish.

If that doesn't suit your fancy, you can stay festive on the sweet holiday with a candy costume. Just blow up a bunch of colorful balloons and put them in a big plastic garbage bag.

Next, rip a whole in the bottom and slide yourself through it. Then, use a bright ribbon to tie the bag around you. Jellybeans, anyone?

With these last minute costumes, you'll never be underprepared again. Have a happy Halloween!
