Take a look at these homemade Dental Floss costume ideas submitted to our annual Halloween Costume Contest. You’ll also find loads of homemade costume ideas and DIY Halloween costume inspiration.
This dental floss costume is a real cheap costume to make. I luckily found a cardboard box which was in a rectangular shape that could fit my daughter inside. I then cut off the ends and placed my daughter inside with her head sticking out of the top. Then I estimated where her arms were and cut out armholes on the sides (after she was out of it of course!). Then I added scraps of other cardboard to make the top with just a circle for her face to peek out of. I wanted it to resemble the dental floss box as much as possible.
I glued everything with a glue gun for ease and speed. Then I covered it all up with white satiny material which I bought at Wal-Mart. Then I copied a recognizable dental floss logo onto the front. For the top blade I made the shape out of cardboard and then covered it with aluminum foil to make it look like the metal blade. Then I even cut off a bit of some rope and glued it to underneath the blade and leading to a small hole coming out of the top of the lid just like a real floss box.
