Things you’ll Need:
Purple Satin Fabric

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.

Things you’ll Need:
Blue Plastic Wrap
Blue or White Clothes
Old Baseball Cap
Putting your Blue Q-Tip Costume Together:
Step 1: To make the hat you will take and old baseball cap and wrap white felt around it. Make a cylinder shaped puff with the felt, so it looks like the head of the Q-Tip. Use the fabric glue to keep it in the desired shape.
Step 2: Wrap your torso with blue plastic wrap after you put on blue or white clothes. Wrap each arm, each leg and your waist with the blue plastic wrap as well. If necessary use tape to make sure that you don’t unravel.
Step 4: Put on your white shoes. Wrap each leg from ankle to just below the knee with white felt. Make sure the felt layer is thick. When you stand with your legs together the width of the felt should look even to the puff of your hat. Tape the felt on your legs rather than gluing it so it is easier to take the costume off.
