Like everything this year, Halloween will look a little different, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be spooktacular! Amazon Prime in Australia is celebrating Boxtumes—one of a kind Halloween costumes you can make at home by upcycling some of those delivery boxes you may have lying around, or if you are planning to do a shop on Amazon.com.au on Prime Day!
We worked with a few experts to create mind-blowing Boxtumes that can help inspire your own creations for a memorable Halloween. Whether you’re looking for ways to recreate a haunted house experience in your own home, wanting to get your furry friends in on the Halloween fun or hoping to pay homage to 2020’s heroes rather than traditional super heroes, these Boxtumes will create fun for the whole family—and certainly give ‘em pumpkin to talk about!
Prime members can also make their at-home Halloween celebrations and Boxtumes-making sessions even better with the Prime benefits they already enjoy. Turn trick-or-treating into a sweet and spooky movie night with family-friendly Halloween favorites like Just Add Magic, The Dog Who Saved Halloween, Halloween Island, and Boom Buddies - Halloween Songs for Kids, on Prime Video; BOO-gie to playlists like Halloween Party, Kids’ Halloween and Haunted House Sounds on Amazon Music; and cozy up with fang-tastical stories for little ones like Goodnight Little Monster, Phineas and Ferb: Haunted Hayride and Sofia the First: The Halloween Ball on Prime Reading.
Check out some of our favourite Boxtumes ideas below for inspiration. If you make Boxtumes this year, make sure to show off your crafting skills on social media with the hashtag #BoxtumesAU for a chance to be featured on our social channels.
Haunt your own house with a haunted Box-Room
Instead of heading to a haunted house this year, turn a spare room or corner of your home into your very own haunted Box-Room. Use Amazon boxes to recreate classic haunted house features, from a crackling fireplace and cobblestone floor to a casket and witch’s broom.

Honour 2020’s heroes with a firetruck Boxtume
To celebrate the amazing firefighters who protect our communities, especially those who have helped with wildfires, create a firetruck Boxtume. Want to make it a group Boxtume? Add a fire hydrant Boxtume to continue the theme!

More than out-of-the-box, think out-of-this-WORLD with this pet Boxtume
Don’t leave your fur baby out of the Halloween fun! You can create a spaceship Boxtume for both you and your dog that is sure to be a hit. All you need is an umbrella, boxes and tape (plus, add streamers and LED lights as finishing touches).
