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 youre into spooky sights, playful pumpkins, or giggling ghouls, the Michaels.com Halloween project page has tons of ideas for DIY Halloween costumes and décor.
Easy DIY Halloween Costumes Tutorial: Little Girl Shooting Star Costume
Items needed (all available from Michaels):
Foam Star Pack (used for headband)
Christmas Tree Garnish (used for headpiece)
Ribbon, Ribbon & more Ribbon (in shiny colors)
Gold Glitter Tulle
White Glitter Tulle
Wire Star Tinsel
Using ribbon and wire star tinsel, I created a fun and sparkly boutonniere that I attached to the shirt with a safety pin.
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.)
I turned a bottle of shimmering glitter into a “stardust” necklace to accent the costume by simply hot gluing some ribbon onto the lid.
The shooting star wand was made with a christmas tree garnish ornament and ribbon. So easy!
The arm bands were made by cutting off the legs from a gold pair of leggings. Ribbon, in all shapes and sizes, was then hot glued onto the arm bands in a row.
She literally looked like a real shooting star!
