Are you in the Halloween costume planning and prepping mode? I just love Halloween, and always get so excited about finding the perfect costume for my children!

This month, Michaels asked me to created a DIY Halloween costume. I took on the challenge and created a SHOOTING STAR COSTUME that I think any little girl would adore. After all, who wouldn’t want to dress up in glitter and gold from head to toe? Sophia (my adorable little model) looks like a bright shining fairy princess, don’t you think?!

Whether you’re into spooky sights, playful pumpkins, or giggling ghouls, the Michaels.com Halloween project page has tons of ideas for DIY Halloween costumes and décor.

The skirt was easily made with tulle and elastic. Simply fold the long tulle piece over the elastic and secure with hot glue. I tied the skirt on at the back. (I had her wear a gold leotard under the skirt.)
