Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to pause our box reuse program earlier this year in an effort to keep our employees and customers safe and healthy. But that doesn’t mean your Imperfect packaging has to go to waste! With a little inspiration and a crafty spirit you can transform it into a creative Halloween costume. As the saying goes, “one person’s recyclables are another person’s zebra costume.” Or something like that.
From masks to pet costumes, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite DIY ideas to reuse packaging.
It’s not just cats who like to hang out inside our boxes. Small to medium-sized humans do as well. Think inside the box with this unique zebra costume made from your Imperfect box. You can also keep your treats close throughout the night because it doubles as a secret snack carrier.
We’ll never know what our dogs want to be when they grow up. Even if you don’t think your dog aspires to be an astronaut, why hold them back? With some strategic snips, you can turn the box insulation into an out-of-this-world costume for your pup.
This costume is perfect for unapologetic gardening nerds who want to fly their veggie flag high. You can grow whatever you like for your raised bed costume, but we recommend staying away from anything too prickly.
Not in the mood to dress up as a terrifying ghoul or a character from your favorite Black Mirror episode this Halloween? Keep it light with these easy and fun-to-make masks. Cut out felt shapes to add color, stems, and details to the masks and transform your face into a pumpkin, a lemon, or a strawberry.
Do you have a nap-loving dog who’s pretty much rooted to their bed? This costume is perfect for the lazy lounge dog who occasionally greets the trick-or-treaters but mostly concentrates on the “treat” part.
