Fairy Princess Costume
I am sure this one is easy to figure out where the idea came from....what 3 year old girl DOESN'T want to be a fairy princess?
This costume was fairly easy to come by because she had most of it as dress up clothes or dance clothes from her sister. We like easy when it comes to costumes. Her leotard was from her big sister during her dancing days. The super cute skirt was a birthday gift from her Cousins McK and B-Man.
I made her fairy crown with silk flowers and pipe cleaners.
Ross whittled down a branch into a wand and I needle felted the star for the top of the wand.
And the necklaces were more Dollar Store jewelry that we always seem to have lying around the house. Grandma W had a spare set of purple wings in her costume bag and the tights and sparkly shoes were Peelu's own. (Okay, we did buy the shoes for her costume because they were so stinking cute. But they have since become a wardrobe staple.)
She was even cute when she fell and was a sad, fairy princess for a few moments.
But she truly loved her costume and these cute photos of her running around in the backyard, looking like a real fairy princess, make all the costume gathering worth it!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
