Happy Halloween! I’ve never been one to enjoy Halloween, I don’t care for costumes or trick or treating. But, now being a mama I must admit experiencing it with her is a lot of fun!
Last year her first costume was Snow White, and this year I went with a Snowflake because I #hadto. I know next year she will probably be able to tell us what she wants to be so I wanted to play off her middle name atleast one more time!
When Kason thought of “Snowflake” as her nickname he didn’t want anyone else to know he called her that simply because he wanted that to be special between them. I don’t even call her that except every once in a while. So if you ever call her that, then I will probably find some way to politely tell you that it’s daddy’s special name for her! 🙂
Here’s what you need:
- 6″ wide tulle, I bought white, and an icy blue
- 1/4″ elastic
- Onesie (or a tshirt)
- White leggings
- Fabric glue
- Foam snowflakes (found these in the Christmas craft section at Hobby Lobby)
- Fabric snowflakes (Christmas crafts)
- Wire coathanger
- Fur (Christmas crafts)
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Hot glue gone
Here are your steps:
- Measure waste, and sewing together elastic for tutu skirt
- Cut strips of tulle and tie them in knots to the elastic to create a tutu
- Take two fabric snowflakes and “sandwhich” a piece of tulle from your skirt with fabric glue (I did this because there wasn’t much for the glue to grab onto, so I used one snowflake on the top that you would see, and used a second as a “backing”.
- Then I fabric glued additional snowflakes on the front of the onesie
- For the wings, I stretched out a wire hanger and cut it down to the size I wanted. I laid a foam snowflake down and positioned the wire hanger where I wanted it and put hot glue over it, then grabbed a second snowflake and aligned it right on top, so again the wire would be “sandwiched” between two foam snowflakes so you wouldn’t be able to see it. I did the same with the other side. Then I held it up to Kerrington, and measured where the elastic arm bands would go. I then just hot glued loops of elastic. (Y’all I can’t tell you how much she loved these wings!) She strutted all of the house with them!)
- Lastly for the headband, I had several nylon headbands without any bows in her drawer so I grabbed one and used the same fabric snowflakes and glued those together!
That’s it! I only took a few hours to complete total even that couple hours was stretched over the day. It was super simple and any mama (or daddy) could pull it off!
Halloween is usually a wear one time event, so fabric glue and hot glue can usually do the trick to pull off costumes!
Hope y’all have a blessed day, and a enjoy making memories with your littles!
