sugar plum fairy

I had the glue gun going up til the time we had to leave the house, but her costume was done in time for trick-or-treating.

She even agreed that she looked more like a sugar plum fairy than an angel. And she was happy about it. (Letting her wear some silvery eye shadow, hair glitter and lipstick may have helped there.)


The yards and yards of lilac lace were out of my Grandma Bev's stash (thanks Bev!). The wings are an old pair that used to go with a Tinkerbell costume. I ripped off the already torn nylon and replaced it with the lilac lace. The silver leaves were in a bag of craft supplies I got at a thrift shop.


There were a lot of leaves...



See what I mean. The little rosebuds were in another bag of junk I thrifted.



Put together, I think it all turned out pretty spectacular. She definitely worked it.
About 30 seconds after eating the last piece of candy we allowed for the evening she asked how many days there were til Christmas.

What a good mom you are to put so much work into these costumes. She looks as sweet as can be!

The costume turned out great! It's amazing what a few embellishments and creativity can do.
