I made this homemade Barbie in a Box girl costume out of my new television box. I cut open a frame so I could be seen and made the words 'BARBIE' by cutting and gluing them on. I also created handles on the side so it would be easy for me to walk around school.

The box is originally brown, but I went to the dollar store and bought pink table cloth and taped all over, to cover the brown, making it look like a legit barbie box.

It took quite some time because I had to measure the box so it was approximately my height and adding STRONG handles is important so you can walk around in the costume all day, without it breaking. It might be best to make separate handles, instead of cutting them inside the box so they won't break off.

Try it out! You'll have so much fun ( :

Other than making the box, you can use your own clothes to be creative and either curl your own hair, or use a wig, just like I did! You may also doll your self up with make up, to make you look like the perfect barbie in a box!

This is a very cute idea! Think I may try to make it for my tween daughter who, last minute, decided she DOES want to go trick-or-treating with her friends!

Well my 8yr. old daughter loves Barbie and we were down to 3 days before Halloween so I looked and looked and suddenly had a Barbie in a Box DIY Halloween Costume Idea. So we looked for the right size box and found the spray paint and got to work. Keep in mind that we got the idea from this web site.

So we found a box that was light enough for her to carry and we found some logos online and after we sprayed the box and cut it out we used adhesive spray for the logos and the plastic shower curtain. I must have looked up over a 1000 different Barbie boxes and Barbie faces. Oh I also used 2 bungie cords and rope to make it like a back pack on the inside and we taped a shoe box to the inside so it would fit just right up against her back.

-2pink spray cans
-1 baby blue spray can
-1 adhesive spray
- white rope
-barbie logos
- a purse or a mic inside for effects. We used rope to make it look like it came that way in the box.

My daughter is into Barbies, so I thought that we could make her a Barbie for a day. Her older sister is supposedly the Barbie's owner. They are both 50's girls. This homemade Barbie doll in a box Halloween costume was easy to make, two large boxes cut and overlapped. 1 can of pink spraypaint. I attached 78s records to the inside of the box. My daughter's costume was also easy to make by looking at pictures of 50's girls.
