This Eiffel Tower Costume is really simple and you probably have everything you need to make it at home right now. You could even add battery operated lights to make it sparkle if you wanted to get fancy. (This little costume makes me miss my old apartment.) You can see all of our Homemade Halloween series right here.

Materials Needed: Large Cardboard Box, Box Cutter, Tape, Tin Foil, Tacky Glue
Step 1: Find a picture of the Eiffel Tower that you like and draw it on the box. Make the bottom of the Eiffel Tower the same width as the shoulders of the person wearing it. It is important that the Eiffel Tower is symmetrical so that when you tape it together it isn’t crooked. Cut out four pieces.
Step 2: Tape the corners together by bending the pieces so they meet at the top.
Step 3: Cut out a square the same size as the base of the Eiffel Tower and cut out 4 strips to tape to each side. Cut out a hole for the head.
Step 4: Cover both pieces in foil and glue the Eiffel Tower to the base with tacky glue. Et voila! You’ve got yourself an Eiffel Tower Costume.
