This Halloween costume for couples is divided into to parts, one person is the Macaroni part and the other is the Cheese part. I will go into details on how to put together each part below.

Macaroni Halloween Costume: Take your refrigerator box, if one end is still sealed, leave it this way. One end will need to be cut completely off, while the other end can stay sealed. You will need to put the refrigerator box over your head, so you need to take your scissors or box cutter and cut a hole into the sealed end of the box to make room for your head. It is best if you try to keep the hole as close to the middle of the end of the box as possible. The box should always maintain a “box” shape, never flatten it.

After you cut the hole for your head take the box off and make sure to take the duct tape and seal the rest of the top where you just cut the hole into for extra strength and holding power.

This step you will need to get your partner to help you with. Put the box back on, with your head sticking out of the hole. Have your partner draw a dot or a circle with a pencil on each of the two sides of the box where you will need to cut holes so that you can stick your arms out of the sides of the box. After this is done take the box off and cut the holes. The arm holes should be as even as possible with each other.

Now you are ready to paint your Macaroni box. Paint the all sides of the box blue, EXCEPT the front. It is best to paint one side at a time so remember to allow time for the sides to dry. Once all of the required sides have been painted and are dry. You will need to sketch and outline for the word Macaroni on the front of the box, you can do this with pencil first. While you are outlining, draw a rectangle above the word Macaroni. This is going to be your “window” that will display your macaroni, just like regular boxes of macaroni do. After outlining with pencil you can go back and trace the outline with black paint. Wait to dry. Then fill in the word Macaroni with white paint. Let dry. Then go to your rectangle window. You will need to sketch macaroni noodle shapes into this box with a pencil. Then go back and outline the shapes with black paint. You can either choose to paint the macaroni noodles with tan paint or you can just leave them the way they are. After it dries you will need to fill in the other spots of the front of the box blue. Let dry and you are done with your Macaroni Box. You can put on your blue hat and use blue face paint to complete your costume. Don’t forget to wear a blue long sleeve top and blue pants for a total overall look of a blue Macaroni box.

Cheese Halloween Costume: To make this part of the Halloween costume you will need to take the last refrigerator box and turn it a slice of cheese. The steps in this are exactly like the beginning steps of creating the Macaroni box. Take your refrigerator box, if one end is still sealed, leave it this way. One end will need to be cut completely off, while the other end can stay sealed. You will need to put the refrigerator box over your head, so you need to take your scissors or box cutter and cut a hole into the sealed end of the box to make room for your head. It is best if you try to keep the hole as close to the middle of the end of the box as possible.

After you cut the hole for your head take the box off and make sure to take the duct tape and seal the rest of the top where you just cut the hole into for extra strength and holding power.

This step you will need to get your partner to help you with. Put the box back on, with your head sticking out of the hole. Have your partner draw a dot or a circle with a pencil on each of the two sides of the box where you will need to cut holes so that you can stick your arms out of the sides of the box. After this is done take the box off and cut the holes. The arm holes should be as even as possible with each other.

Now you are ready to paint your Cheese slice. You can use yellow, orange or a mixture or yellowish-orange to paint your cheese slice. Paint one side at a time, so remember to allow time for the sides to dry. After all sides are dry take your pencil and sketch an outline of a Cheese slice wrapper. Don’t forget to put the line across the front of the Cheese Slice. Then follow up with white paint, let dry. You can use face paint to match the color of your cheese slice. Put on your stocking hat, yellowish-orange long sleeve shirt and pants and your complete Halloween costume of Macaroni and Cheese is ready to go.
