Naturally I get on Pinterest and start scanning for ideas. Simple ideas. My daughter looking over my shoulder spots a Flash costume and gets ecstatic! They've been watching the Flash on TV and so she was sold. So with gathering things already around my house I threw together a costume that looked like I spent all week working on! Don't you love those kind of projects?!
Here is what I gathered:
1. Red teenage mutant ninja turtle mask from older brother.
2. The Flash headband that was a McDonald toy in a happy meal awhile back.
3. Printable Iron on transfer sheets
4. Yellow duck tape
5. Red ribbon and what little red tulle I had
6. White and gold sparkled tulle
I printed the Flash logo on the transfer paper and simply ironed it on a red shirt she had (that we actually turned inside out because the front had writing on it). Next I took yellow duck tape and just cut the ends at angles to make the belt look right. And finally I cut and cut and cut and cut and cut.... And CUT strips of tulle. Simply double knotted them on a ribbon and voila instant skirt to glam it up a bit!
This all came together in a couple hours and cost me nothing!! Sigh. Reveling in the mommy goodness of the sound of that!
And you know I have to show you how cute she looked right?!
Cutest Flash I know!!
