Creative DIY Appliance Costume Ideas

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite appliance-themed Halloween costumes that are easy to make yourself, or with your children. Most of these costumes require just a few supplies, but a whole lot of creativity and imagination. Enjoy!

Refrigerator Running Costume

A play on the old joke, “Is your refrigerator running?”: Consider a refrigerator running costume. This appliance costume idea is easy to make at home with a large cardboard box and your favorite running shoes. Customize your “refrigerator” to fit your style with creative mock-magnets, decorations, and more.

Perhaps your little refrigerator doesn’t like to run but still prefers a creative Halloween costume DIY. This kids refrigerator costume is chock full of details, down to favorite foods being kept inside the costume’s faux doors. Empty refrigerated product boxes and bags are easy to glue inside, adding even more dimension and detail.

Laundry Room Group Costume

Looking for a great group Halloween costume? Consider a laundry room group costume theme! This Halloween costume DIY is a great activity for the whole family to work on together. Similar to the refrigerator running costume, you’ll need to gather large boxes to create the main body of each costume. Allow the kids to customize their appliance costume idea with as many details as they’d like to add, from empty detergent bottles to a small pile of folded clothes.

Cut the bottom out of an inexpensive plastic laundry basket to create the body of this Halloween costume DIY.

Bun in the Oven Costume

Another appliance costume idea for an expectant mother plays on the old phrase “a bun in the oven”. Like many of our other appliance costume ideas, this creative Halloween costume DIY is easily achieved with a cardboard box and bit of creativity. The bun in the oven costume can easily incorporate the expectant father as the “chef” of the exciting treat, donning a chef’s hat and a mixing bowl and spoon.

Dust Bunny Costume

For a creative kids costume idea, consider your little one dressing up in a DIY dust bunny costume. Kids will love the silliness that this costume invites on Halloween night. A grungy white oversized t-shirt, some cotton pillow filling, a bunny mask, and a creative kid will make this costume a hit. Making this Halloween costume DIY with your children is a great activity leading up to Halloween, as well.
