Halloween Costumes to Make out of Moving Boxes

Halloween Costumes to Make out of Moving Boxes

We have given you so many self-storage tips or tips for you move. We have helped you with choosing a local moving company, tips for storing fragile items, and how to get organized.

What we haven’t done is give you ideas for what to do with your moving boxes after you move.  One of the best ways to utilize old moving boxes is to create Halloween Costumes. We have put together a list of some of our favorite Halloween Costumes that you can make with boxes.

These are just a few Halloween costume ideas you can make with moving boxes.  We did have a little help from Pinterest. There are so many other cardboard box-based costume ideas. Your only limit is your imagination and how many cardboard boxes you have.

We hope you have a happy and safe Halloween from the storage unit experts at Garden of the Gods Self Storage.
