This homemade costume for adults entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Jen, the 'Spooky Trash' costume creator:

This was a fun costume, you can walk upto the door, sqwat down in the can tuck head so cover is on top and when the unsuspecting person came to the door you jump up and give um a treat!

We had a lot of fun trick or treating with this!!!
We added grouling limbs on ours, but you dont have to, my daugther used a grouly arm out her arm hole for collecting candy instead of her own!


  • Rubber Garbage Can with Lid
  • Hat with ties(which you staple to inside of lid)
  • Empty containers and wrappers
  • old black t-shirt to cut and staple to inside top of garbage can
  • 1 black garbage bag
  • Hot glue gun

Cut the bottom off the garbage can
Also need to make a hole in middle of black fabric for head, then hot glue garabge bag strips around edge of garbage can. Cut arm holes on sides of garbage can also.

Hot Glue on empty containers or packages on black fabric and around sides!
