Most little girls I know would love to dress up as a Fairy for Halloween. I used to pretend I was Tinkerbelle, you know the fairy from Peter Pan. It was a wonderful fantasy and I still love Tink and the memories I have of her. So for this fall's dress up season why not make your little girl's dream of actually becoming a fairy come true.

Fairy Costume Wings

The wings are an important part of this costume idea, after all, what kind of fairy can't fly? Your wings can be made of cloth, tissue, feathers, or tulle. They can be large or small...I think small is easier to walk around with and more true to our picture of fairy wings. I also like sparkly wings, so no matter what materials I use to create wings, I always sprinkle them with glitter. And of course, there are wings for sale all over the internet on the online costume stores, Amazon, Ebay, or you can find them locally in costume stores, Targets, Walmarts, and other retail outlets in your neighborhood. Check out the prices and hopefully your store bought wings will be a bargain.

How To Make A Fairy Costume Skirt

Your fairy dress or skirt is easy to make out of tulle. It is so simple to craft a skirt with this versatile material and you don't even know how to sew to make this costume skirt. You can make the skirt as long, or as short as you like. For the waistband try to find a crocheted elastic headband...of course, the waistband can also be a belt, a piece of ribbon or a piece of elastic. Measure the waist and find something that fits...or cut ribbon to that size. Cut strips of tulle twice as long as you want your fairy skirt. If you want a skirt to come to the ankles, cut the strips twice as long as the measurement from your child's waist to her ankle. The amount of strips that you cut will depend on how full you want your skirt to be. The fuller the skirt, the more tulle strips you will need.

Loop the tulle strip around the elastic or belt. Pull it down, let the two ends match up, and tie it in a the knot is up at the top of the belt. The two tulle strips hanging down are the beginning of your skirt. Keep this up until your belt/elastic is full of tulle strips and you have a tutu style skirt. Keep going until your skirt is a full as you wanted it to be. You can use one color shade of tulle to be a fairy of a certain color. For example, pink tulle will create a pink fairy skirt. Or you can mix complementary colors and create a rainbow fairy skirt.

The Fairy Costume Shirt

Pair the skirt with a leotard in the same shade or use a turtleneck long sleeve t shirt as a top. (I said turtleneck because it's October and you want your little girl to be warm. I am always cold, so I tend to add warmer clothing to my costume instructions. Now if you want to be a twinkling, sparkling fairy, spread some glue on the shirt and sprinkle glitter all over it. Take the shirt over some paper or a sink and shake the excess glitter off. Now the costume shirt (or leotard) will be very sparkly.

Finishing Touches For Your Homemade Fairy Costume

Add some tights in a matching or complementary color, some shoes or ballet slippers and you've pretty much made your own fairy costume for your child to wear on Halloween.

Other optional accessories include:

A Magic Wand - that's a dowel with a star glued onto it. Make the star out of cardboard, paint it silver or gold with craft paint, and add some glue...before the glue dries sprinkle some glitter on the star so it sparkles.

You can make a wreath for your fairy's hair using a headband. Decorate the top of the headband by hot gluing some silk flowers to it. You only need to do the top, you can also tie some ribbons from it and let them drape down over your daughter's hair. You can also twist her hair in the ribbons - take two small bunches of hair and 1 piece of ribbon and braid them. Your daughter will have colorful ribbon braids that match her costume colors.

You can also use feathers instead of flowers to make the headband and you can tie some feathers onto the ribbons that hang from the headband. You can also add some feathers to the magic wand if you like.
