The Homemade Clown in the Box Halloween Costume I made is my own version of a Jack-In-The-Box. My name is Gabby, so I renamed it Gab-In-The-Box. I used a giant cardboard box as the “box” part of the costume. I then used an old striped bed sheet for the shirt and hat. I used another old green bed sheet for the collar and tassles of the hat.
I stapled the sheet to the box to keep it up. I cut out a piece of tagboard and rolled it into a cone shape for the hat, then put the material over it. I used my dad’s suspenders to keep the box from falling down and old red gloves for my hands.
