Do you have leftover boxes from your last move? Ohave you collected a few boxes from the online shopping you’ve been doing while staying safely at home? Before throwing them in the recycling bin, give them new life with these awesome, budget friendly Halloween Costumes. 

These are great for kids, adults, families, and group costumes! 

Washing Machine:  

You’ve probably been visiting your laundry machine more often these days, so why not honour it properly? You can go as extravagant or as simple as you like. Grab a box, a round, plastic lid, tape them together with duct tape or tin foil, and you’ll have a laundry machine. You can stop there or add extra details such as a few old clothes, an empty laundry soap container, or a fabric softener box.
