Tooth Fairy

If you're wanting a little bit a challenge, but without the stress, try this DIY tooth fairy costume from Today's Parent. Here's how to make it:

  1. For the skirt, you can either use a tutu or long strips of tulle tied around elastic.
  2. For the toothbrush, cut a long narrow strip out of one end of a pool noodle, large enough to slip a dustpan brush into. For added stability, slide a broomstick into the center hole, and then slide the brush in.
  3. To make the tiara, hot glue toothbrushes upright onto a hair band; reinforce by gluing a piece of stiffened felt to the back.
  4. Add wings, and your fairy is ready to shine!

Olaf from "Frozen"

Is your child a fan of Frozen...who isn't?? Well now they can be their favorite character using only a sweatshirt and some felt! Check out Desert Chica's tutorial for instructions!

This costume is perfect for those of you that have some spare ribbon laying around (or need an excuse to buy more😉). Simply use tape or hot glue to attach different lengths of silver and white ribbon to a clear umbrella! Our wired and sheer ribbon would work perfectly for this project!
