How To Make This Homemade X-Ray Skeleton Costume
My son is all about skeletons this year, so making this costume was an exciting time for him.
- Medium to large to cardboard box
- Black paint
- White cardstock
- Box cutter
- Skeleton Printable
Directions To Make This Kids Skeleton Costume
- First, you’ll need to paint the outside of your box black. This is what gives your boxtume the x-ray effect.
- Then, print our X-Ray Skeleton Costume printable on the white cardstock. Cut out each piece, then use the decoupage to adhere the skeleton to the front of the box. Coat in a thin layer of decoupage to protect the design.
- Once the decoupage has dried, use the box cutter to cut holes in the top and bottom of the box, leave a two-inch border around each hole. Finally, add holes to the sides of the box for your child to place their arms through.
Now your X-Ray Skeleton is ready for action!
Finished Skeleton Halloween Costume
Yay! You’ve finished your skeleton x-ray costume for Halloween! How cute and creative!
Our Experience Making Our Skeleton Halloween Costume
I will admit, I do a lot of online shopping. So that means we have a lot of boxes to recycle, so I was like…. why no use these boxes for Halloween!?
With just a few other simple craft supplies, we had simple, creative costume that my son was excited to show off to his friends.
The best part about this X-Ray Skeleton costume is that you probably already have everything you need to make it at home.
Since our boxtume was for an older kid this year, we used a larger box.
My son has had so much fun using the rest of our boxes to make unique Halloween decorations for our home.
