Honest Halloween: DIY Popcorn Costume

Get poppin’ with our fourth and final cardboard box Halloween costume! Honest Chief Marketing Officer, Chris, and Teddy (his too-cute tot!) are showing us what can be made with a few Honest HQ staples: cardboard boxes and popcorn. Tune in below and get ready to get crafty.

Materials

  • Essentials Bundle box
  • Paper plate (to trace holes for head and arms)
  • Pencil
  • Box cutter
  • Ruler
  • Roll of white craft paper
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Red paint for stripes (Optional: duct tape, ribbon, or paper)
  • Paint brush
  • Popcorn (Optional: tissue paper)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Popcorn labels (2 - front and back of box)

Suggested Clothing

  • Red or white shirt
  • Red or white pants
  • Red or white hat

Instructions

  1. Today we’re using a large Essentials Bundle box. The first thing you’re going to do is cut off the bottom flaps.
  2. Though we don’t like to cover up our delightful Honest box, to make your box look more like a popcorn container, you’ll need to cover the top and sides with white craft paper. We’ll use double sided tape to make the paper stick.
  3. Next, use a small plate to cut holes on the top and sides of the box for your child’s head and arms.
  4. You can create guidelines for the red stripes using a ruler and pencil, then let your kiddo paint in the stripes with a water-based craft paint. We’ve already completed this step to allow time for the paint to dry.
  5. Section by section, put some hot glue on the top of the box and pile on the popcorn. This takes a bit of time, so you have the option to use yellow tissue paper instead.
  6. Lastly, we printed large “popcorn” labels to attach to the sides of the box with a few dots of hot glue.

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend, friends!
