Halloween is just around the corner (18 days to be exact…) and if you just moved in or still have a few moving boxes to unpack, this post is for you! Instead of throwing away those last few boxes, we want to challenge you to up-cycle them into the most amazing Halloween costume that your new, impressionable neighborhood has ever seen!
Yep, forget spending big bucks online or at a costume shop. With a little creativity and some leftover boxes, we are confident you can fashion one of these looks. Check out the tutorials below each image! (Except for Beyonce. There’s only one Beyonce.)

Instead of pitching those moving boxes right away, create the coolest Halloween costume on the block like these people did…so start unpacking those boxes as soon as possible. Quite honestly, we can’t think of better motivation to get unpacked and settled in than Halloween!
