My son loves apple juice and I take joy in making his costumes but I don't want to pick out his costumes because I like them. I want him to like what he's wearing, so I made him his favorite drink! He got so excited when I told him he was gonna be a Mott's Juice Box Costume for Halloween.
I got a cardboard box from my job, went to Craft Store and bought all the colored foam paper I needed, went to a hardware store and bought a plumbing tube for the straw. I cut out a whole for his head and his arms before I began wrapping the box with yellow paper, I taped his arm wholes and head whole so they wouldn't tear, then I went online to see how the layout would be on the front of box.
I printed out a template as big as I could for the logo, apple and graphics. I cut out the letters and apple and front graphics out of the right color foam and glued them onto box. I cut a hole out for the straw and a base made out of aluminum foil just like the juice box has. Put some cushion inside of box so his shoulders wouldn't hurt. Got him some red high top sneakers and here is Mr. Motts!
When we asked our 3 year old son Brody what he wanted to be for Halloween he said..."A Juice Box". So our creative minds went to work and with the help of a friend in the cardboard box industry and the artistic talent of my wife, we had a very successful Juice Box Costume.
Basically we found a cardboard box that was the right size to fit Brody's frame and cut out the holes for his arms and completely cut out the bottom of the box. For the opening on top we cut out a hole much larger then the diameter of this head and cut out the top part of one of Brody's t-shirts. We duct taped the t-shirt to the under side of the hole we cut out for his head and therefore he would slip his head into the T-shirt and not rub the cardboard box on his neck.
I used plenty of duct tape and it held up just fine. The straw was just the core of a roll of wrapping paper and the rest was the artist talent of my wife who just copied a Juice box we had. She changed some of the words to make them funny and used waterbased paints we had at the house.
My daughter and her bff made these out of regular packing boxes. Wrapped in white paper, and painted to look like Sun Rype juice boxes. They used a die cut machine to cut out the letters. We covered the outside in clear packing tape to protect the paper. They used irrigation pipes, wrapped in white duct tape for the straws. The other side was in french to make them realistic. It was a huge hit with everyone at the school, and all the houses they went to!
