Our family never bought costumes for halloween. And one of the costumes we made was the box costume. We made different kinds of box costumes like junior mints and whoppers. So here is my instructable for the simple box costume!
A box that fits
Colored Construction paper
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut Out Arms and Head
First things first, measure the head of the child.
Then draw a circle and cut the circle out! 😁
I cut the arm holes very big so that it is easy to get in and out of the box.
Step 2: The Bottom and Extreme Use of Tape!
Now it’s time to tape the lid of the box shut. I used a large strong tape to close the box.
Then I also taped all the cracks together.
Next I cut out the bottom of the box.
I checked to make sure everything fits well on my brother!
(I did cut the bottom larger afterwards because it was too small)
Step 3: Paper, Glue, and Tape!
I decided that my brother should be a cute little butter! 😍
Of course you can decorate the box to be anything you want :)
I wanted to write on the front without any interference from the smooth surface of tape, so I glued all the yellow construction paper on the front.
On the back, however, I taped the yellow construction paper because the tape was stronger.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
This was my favorite part! I sketched the word “butter “ and “it’s delicious!” Onto the front and then rewrote it in marker.
So NOW my brother is a delicious looking butter all ready and set for Halloween!
