At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we love box costumes, or “boxtumes” as we call them. With Halloween quickly approaching, you might be looking for a quick and easy DIY costume for your kids – we’ve got you covered! Follow along these steps to create an iPod boxtume.
What you’ll need:
- One TWO MEN AND A TRUCK medium-size box
- Red and grey paint
- White poster or white construction paper
- Duct tape
Step 1: Grab your TWO MEN AND A TRUCK box and cut the bottom and top pieces off to help close the box.
Step 2: Paint the box red (or any color you want your iPod to be!).
Step 3: Cut out a square from the white poster to create the screen. Then, cut out a circle to create the menu/volume options on your iPod.
Step 4: Draw an apple on the square (or print one you find online) with the grey paint and then draw the pause, volume, and menu buttons on the circle with the grey paint as well. Once all the paint is dry, glue the square above the circle on the red box.
Step 5: To make easy straps for the costume, fold the duct tape in half long ways (so there is no sticky side) and make the tape as long as you want your desired straps to be.
Step 6: Paint the straps red (or whatever color you chose for your box) and once they’re dry, glue them at the front and back of the box.
Complete this costume by wearing a red long sleeve shirt that matches the iPod. Once all the paint and glue is dry, you’ll have a fun and creative costume ready for trick-or-treating and Halloween festivities!
