Almost every little girl would love to dress up as a princess for Halloween, but ready-made costumes are often overpriced. Standard off-the-rack Halloween costumes sold in discount stores are incredibly cheap in quality, and they are likely to fall apart after just one night. Instead of buying an expensive princess costume for Halloween, try this easy option. Any little girl can look like a real princess in this easy no-sew dress, especially with a few Halloween princess accessories.
Make this Easy Netted Costume
It is not necessary to pay upwards of $12 for a princess costume that is cheaply made and not likely to last another Halloween. Instead of visiting the costume department of a local discount store, visit the fabric department and make one. Buy the most inexpensive pink, purple, or white netting available, and be sure it is enough to go around the child’s waist with plenty to spare. It should be folded over to create at least two layers of netting. In addition, buy a length of coordinating satin ribbon one-half inch in width to make a belt to help hold the Halloween princess skirt in place. It will also help give the Halloween princess skirt a finished look.
After folding the material to make a netted skirt that will reach the knee area or below, make small cuts between the openings of the netting about every three or four inches around the area of the waist. Thread the ribbon over and under until the ribbon goes completely around the top of the Halloween princess skirt. The costume can be tied in the front or the back.
Make this easy princess Halloween costume even fancier with a little spray-on glitter. Buy spray glitter in iridescent colors, silver, or gold, and lightly spray the skirt. It will sparkle in the light and look absolutely beautiful.
A Skirt for a Princess
To complete the skirt of this impressive Halloween costume, have the child wear a short matching skirt beneath the netting. A matching top such as a body suit or a snug fitting lacy top can also be used to finish the costume. These are clothing items that can be used after the costume is no longer needed, and long after Halloween has ended. Unlike a store-bought costume, these items are not a waste of money since they can be worn again and again.
Buy a Fairy Wand, Jeweled Tattoos, and a Princess Crown
Lastly, visit a local Dollar General store, and buy a feathered fairy wand, jeweled temporary tattoos for a cheek or an arm, and complete the Halloween costume with a beautiful faux princess crown. These items are very reasonably priced at Dollar General, and they can also be used for play after Halloween is over.
Give your little princess a very special hairdo to go with this beautiful costume, and consider letting her wear a little lipstick and blush. Any little girl will feel like a real princess in this simple yet impressive Halloween costume that absolutely anyone can make.
