Introduction

Looking for a flower costume? Consider transforming your daughter into an entire rose garden this Halloween. 

To encourage hair-loom roses to bloom, Bryana, 7, sprinkled her head with hair glitter. Her updo, wrapped in a potted-plant fence, is ideal for tucking in silk roses. Wire keeps silk butterflies from flying away. More silk flowers grow on her shirt with the help of some hot glue.

materials

  • Green leotard

  • Assorted silk flowers with leaves

  • Hot-glue gun

  • Miniature picket fence

  • Hair glitter spray

  • 12 artificial butterflies

  • Wire cutters

  • Black 24-gauge wire

steps

  1. Hot-glue flowers and leaves to neckline of leotard.

  2. Pull hair into a high bun; arrange picket fence (cut off excess) and bobby-pin in place. Spray glitter onto hair, and use bobby pins to secure additional flowers and leaves.

  3. Remove original wires from butterflies. Cut lengths of wire from 8 to 12 inches; hot-glue to butterflies. Wrap wires around bobby pins, and affix to hair.
