Halloween is only 4 days away, and you are out of ideas for a great, unique costume. Leave it to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to have your back!
We have created some fun, quick, and inexpensive DIY costumes made from moving boxes to dress you and the whole family for the festive evening.
Presidential Candidate Stand
Step 1: Use a dish box because it holds a more rectangular shape. Cut the top of in a slant toward the back of the box.
Step 4: Using either glue or tape attach a black pipe cleaner with a black craft pom pom attached to the end.
This is one of the most unique costumes, and any coin can be made with a little artistic flare.
Step 1: Flatten the box and cut out a circle and drew the letters to prepare for cutout
Step 2: Carefully cut out the letters
Step 3: Spray paint the large circle and letters seperately
Step 4: Glue letters on to the circle and cut area for the circle to fit snugly onto the shoulder
Step 5: Use fabric spray paint for the clothing and matching metallic makeup for your face.
Simple as that!
This couple did an amazing job with the classic Rubik’s cube costume! Follow the link here to find out how to make this the perfect costume!
Depending on the age of the person wearing the costume we recommend a using a small box for young children, a medium for females, and a large box for men.
This is one of our favorite duo costumes! It is bright, colorful, and incredibly easy to recreate! The Nerds box does take a little more time than some of the other costumes because there is a little more painting involved. We suggest using medium-size boxes for this costume.
Step 2: Spray paint one box purple and one pink.
Step 3: Put the boxes together to draw and paint the Nerds logo and design. You can get as creative as you would like with this. Just make it fun.
Step 4: Glue straps on for the boxes to sit one your shoulders.
Step 4: Add extra flare by wearing the same color as the boxes and funny glasses.
This is a great costume for couples or best friends!
You can’t get much cuter than a box of raisins! This is another very simple costume that will get a tremendous amount of attention while trick-or-treating! If you find yourself without a bonnet, you can simply use a red scarf!
Step 1: Find a small taller box and spray paint it red
Step 2: Cut out the front and arm holes on each side for your child
Step 3: search online for the “Sun-Maid” logo. Print it out, and cut it out (we recommend using a craft knife).
Step 4: Use spray adhesive
to attach the lettering to the bottom of the box
Step 5: Add the bonnet or scarf and have fun!
