How to Make a Fairy Costume
Do you want to create a magical fairy costume that will enchant you little one? Well, it is not as hard as it seems to make your own fairy costume. In fact, you don’t even need to know how to sew. With a little fabric and a few crafty tricks you can have everyone oohing and ahhing over you supposed crafting skills. Better yet, your little one will be as pleased as punch.
Things you’ll Need:
Purple Satin Fabric
Purple Satin Tulle
Fabric Glue/Liquid Seam
Putting your Fairy Costume Together:
Step 1: Take your purple satin and wrap it around your little ones chest so you know how big to make the top. Use fabric glue to make a seam in the back when you have the top appropriately sized. Make strap out of the pieces of satin and glue them on too.
Step 2: Make a skirt using the purple tulle. Fold the tulle in half make a waistband using the fabric glue. Feed the elastic through the waist band and secure it with a safety pin.
Step 3: Make the head band out of craft wire. Cut an appropriately sized piece of craft wire. Wrap it with alternating pieces of bunched tulle. The tulle can be glued and folded in half. Wrap the craft wire together at the back of the headband to form the circle.
Step 4: No fairy is complete without her wand. Make the wand out of cardboard. Use the metallic paint to make the star top of the wand shiny silver and the handle shiny gold. Put on your wings and your good to go.
Tip: Sewing can replace any of the gluing or pining if you know how.
