Sometimes Halloween sneaks up on you and you need an easy last-minute Halloween costume for kids.
That’s why we are so excited to team up with Amazon Prime today to share this X-Ray Skeleton costume made from an Amazon smile box!
We use Amazon Prime for pretty much everything in our house — free two-day shipping is a lifesaver when you don’t want to have to drag kiddos to the store — so we had tons of Amazon smile boxes to choose from.
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.
Last year, we teamed up with Amazon to make a DIY Building Blocks costume, so we were thrilled when Amazon decided to team up with us for another boxtume!
Since our boxtume was for an older kid this year, we used a larger box.
DIY X-Ray Skeleton Costume
Here’s what you need for this project:
- Amazon Smile box
- Black paint
- White cardstock
- Box cutter
First, you’ll need to paint the outside of your Amazon Smile 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!
My son has had so much fun using the rest of our Amazon Smile boxes to make unique Halloween decorations for our home. You can show off your own creativity by sharing photos on social media using #boxtumes, #amazonprime and #morethanabox.
