We bought this "snow princess" costume last year on clearance at Target to save until Halloween this year. My daughter really liked it, and I felt so good knowing that I wouldn't have to worry about a costume for Halloween this year. (The boys are old enough to not need costumes or care.) Then, about a week ago, the announcement came...
"Mom, princesses are more for little girls~I don't want to tell my friends I'm a snow princess."
"Okay," I said in my most
"So...why don't we call you a snow Queen instead?"
Fortunately she was good with it~but I knew I had to switch things up a bit with the costume.
The next day I stopped in at the dollar store to find some inspiration. I decided she should look more wintery than princessy. So I found this glittered, potted, silver poinsettia which normally I would pass right on by. But it was sparkly, perfect I thought for a snow queen. I snipped off the poinsettia heads and saved the leaves.
I found this soft garland there that I thought I could cut and twist into a wreath for her head.
I hot glued the poinsettia and leaves onto the wreath, then added the other one to the belt. So for $2 extra dollars, the snow princess will now be the snow "queen".
Happy Halloween! The parties begin here today, are your costumes all ready?
