How to Make a No Sew Fairy Costume

When making a plan for a Halloween party, picking the right costume is of pivotal importance. If you are not very handy with a needle and thread but want to make a costume for your child, consider making a no-sew fairy Halloween costume. If made properly, a no-sew fairy costume will look as beautiful as a sewn one that are often bought at a store by most people. Fortunately, making a no-sew fairy costume is easy and does not require that many items to complete.

Things Required:

– Tulle (3 to 4 yards)
– Blouse or top
– Magic wand
– Wings
– Scissors
– Elastic band
– Shoes

    To start making your no-sew fairy costume, purchase about three to four yards of tulle. Consider using multiple colours that compliment the costume. Vibrant colours such as peach and teal give a more natural fairy look to the costume. For this reason, it will be a good idea to use these colours. Moreover, some of the tulle you buy should have sparkles or shimmers on it.

    Visit a local dollar or craft store and buy a magic wand as it will make the perfect accessory when the costume is ready.

    For making the no-sew fairy skirt’s waistband, you will need to purchase a skinny, elastic headband. Using an already made headband is much more convenient than measuring out loose elastic pieces and then securing them to each other.

    You will now have to cut the tulle you bought earlier into 3 or 4 inches thick strips. Use a sharp pair of scissors for this purpose. Moreover, you will need to keep in mind that ideal length of tulle strips for making a no-sew fairy costume is about 3 feet.

    Knot each strip you cut tightly around the elastic headband. Cut a 2-foot length strip and place it around the elastic headband in such a way that the string is halved. Start tying the tulle strips in place such that the two floating pieces of the no sew tutu are created out of the knots that you make.
