You would think, since our kids are getting older, we would be phasing out of Halloween.  But each year, we find more and more ways to have fun together as a family. This year, we made costumes out of boxes and supplies that we had sitting around the house and office. This is a good way to have a great costume that will not cost you a fortune. And anything we didn’t have around the house, we ordered using Amazon Prime.

4 Easy Steps to Create a Playing Card Halloween Costume Made with a Box

You can have so much fun with playing card costumes because there are 52 different cards to choose from.  You can create cards for the entire family, such as a straight flush.  Couples can create costumes out of the king and the queen.  And there are so many great things you can do with the Joker.

We created playing card halloween costumes for our girls using a box. It was fast and it was fun. And thanks to #AmazonPrime it was very affordable.

Step 1: Select the card(s) you will make.

You can print out symbols from the web or you can even purchase stencils to make the symbols.

Step 2: Collect Your Supplies

  • A box (big enough to use for the costume.)
  • White paper to the cover the box.
  • Printouts of your card symbols and numbers
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tape

We already had all of the supplies to create our #Boxtumes costume at home.

Step 3: Assemble your costume

Cut holes in the box for your head and arms. Using the white paper and tape, cover the box. Finally, cut out your printed symbols and paste them on the box so that look like the playing card that you have chosen. Be sure to decorate the front and the back of the box.

Step 4: Accessorize

The way to take your box costume up a notch is to accessorize and coordinate with the clothes that you wear under the box. You can also wear hats such as a King’s or Queen’s crown, a ski mask, or a Jester’s hat.  Since we selected spades, we will wear all black under our costumes.  It’s normally cool on Halloween, so I ordered these great cotton long sleeve shirts using Amazon Prime so that our girls will be cute and comfortable.  And of course they were affordable and they were delivered fast with Free Two-Day Shipping.

When you are making your #Boxtumes costume, anything you can't find around the house can be ordered using Amazon Prime.

My girls will look great in their playing card Halloween costumes that I made from a box and items from around the house. We also ordered a few items using #AmazonPrime.
