Woodland Fairy Costume

So what do you do when your daughter announces that she wants to be a "woodland fairy" the day before her big Halloween party?



Raid your thrift store sweater stash of course!  I just cut the arms off and made a new neckline and jagged waistline.




I saved the arms and cut them into tapered strips.




A pick of silk fall leaves and a glue gun and we are ready to go!




Just tie strips of tulle around an elastic waistband for the skirt. (Go here for a tutorial.) Then start gluing on the green tapered strips and some more fall leaves.





Here was my inspiration.







A few more scattered leaves......




And we are DONE!!!




2 dollar-store fairy wings in coordinating colors rounded out the costume for a very happy teenager!  Happy Halloween Birthday Dear Daughter!
