Become a popcorn box this Halloween with this easy to make costume idea shared by Bekah in Tennessee.


  • Cardboard box
  • Paint, red and white
  • Balloons, yellow and white
  • White tee shirt
  • White sweatpants
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Take the cardboard box and cut off the top were you want your head to be; on the bottom, cut holes for your legs but not to big because we are goin to put the balloons in the box. Cut holes for you arms too ( on the side). After you have got the box ready for you to get in, paint the box red and white stripes. Then make a sign that says popcorn, and glue the sign to the box. Blow up the balloons and set them aside.

Put on your white tee shirt, and your white sweatpants, and step into your popcorn box, have someone fill the box with the balloons so they look like popcorn, and go trick-or-treating. This is a great idea that can be from the ages 10-12.

Suggestions by Michelle Scott: Make stripes on the box using red and white duck tape. Use a piece of blue poster board tp make a Popcorn sign. Glue piece of popcorn to a white hat and also around the top of the box.
