Flower Costumes: Rose Garden
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.
- 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
Hot-glue flowers and leaves to neckline of leotard.
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.
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.
