Halloween is this weekend! If you don’t have a costume yet and are still looking for an idea, we’ve got another good “boxtume” for you to make: a dinosaur!

Who doesn’t love a dinosaur for Halloween? This boxtume can be made from two moving boxes and a few easy supplies to create a fun, easy costume for the weekend. If you’re looking for other ideas, you can find more options, here.

Follow along to get crafting your dinosaur boxtume!

Step 1: Cut holes for the arms and head into a medium-sized moving box and a hole for a head and mouth in a small moving box.


Step 2: Glue the two boxes together where the head holes meet, with the small box on top. Then paint a base color over the black wording on the boxes.

Step 3: Paint the boxes any dino color of your choice and let them dry.

Step 4: Spray paint textured paint onto your boxes for a scaly, striped look.

Step 5: Cut out small triangles for teeth and circles for eyes then paint pupils on the eyes and glue all of them to the dyno using leftover triangles to stand the eyes up.

Step 6: Enjoy and capture plenty of pictures to document this unique, handmade boxtume!
