Quick And Easy Homemade Box Costume Ideas

A Playing Card

It doesn’t have to be the ace of spades necessarily, but to be any kind of playing card use large flats of straightened cardboard box. Use your computer and printer to create a pattern or image to paste on your flats. Punch holes at the top of each flat to feed twine or strong string through, and wear like a sandwich board.

A Robot

Using a larger box such as one that a vacuum would come in, paint it silver, cut a hole in the top for your head, and you’re a robot!

A Fridge - The Refrigerator Costume

Again, using a larger box with a hole cut in the bottom; paint it white with a black “handle” (or attach one) and you’re a fridge!

A Computer

Using a large and a small box, paint either tan or silver. Draw a keyboard on the larger bottom box or carry a keyboard or mouse around, and you’re a computer!

A Present

Wrap your box in decorative paper, put a bow on your head, and go as a present.

A Jack-in-the-Box

Paint your box bright colors, cut a hole in the bottom for your head, attach a crank or lever and go as a jack-in-the-box.

Dice or Make 2 Dice For A Fun Couples Costume Idea

Get a friend and go as a pair of dice. Paint your boxes white and paint or color in the black dots. Attach string connecting the two of you and cover your box with colored felt-you’re now a pair of fuzzy dice!

Cardboard boxes are easy to find, and you can make a great costume from them using simple things easily found around the house. Let your imagination roam freely, and your cardboard box costume will be a hit!
