As we get closer and closer to Halloween, we’ve been sharing our best “boxtume” ideas to help get you ready for the big event.
We’re bringing back another classic today with an old school idea: Frankenstein! That’s right – you can be one of the original stars of Halloween with this simple, easy costume idea. This boxtume can be made from just an old recycled box and some materials you may already have around your home.
What you’ll need:
- TWO MEN AND A TRUCK small box
- Green, black, and silver paint
- Paper towel tube
- Box cutter
- Hot glue
Step 1: Assemble the box, taping the top and bottom shut. Paint the outside with green paint.
Step 2: Once the paint has dried, use a box cutter to cut a rectangle out of the front of the box for the face. Then, cut another rectangle out of the bottom that’s large enough to fit your child’s head.
Step 3: Add black, pointed hair around the top of the head.
Step 4: Cut paper towel tube in half and paint silver. Once dry, hot glue to each side of the box.
Complete the look with a purple shirt and black jacket, and maybe even green face paint if you’re feeling extra spooky!
