Lots to do in planning a birthday party but first things first, the costumes. Since there will be a number of children invited to the party, I know the costumes will have to be made from something FREE, or almost free, and from something easy to come by. As it turns out, plastic milk jugs are perfect for this project.
My conservative price estimate is $8.00 per flower fairy. That price includes the cost of the tutu, which is optional.
Ribbon - $1.50 to $3.00
Silk Flowers - 50 cents
Glitter - 50 cents
Tulle - $4.00 (optional)
Step 1: SUPPLIES:
5 plastic milk jugs, gallon size
Ribbon 12 to 24 feet
I found a roll, 12 feet, about half an inch wide, for $1.50 at a super center.
Goodwill is a great place to find these. All the flowers I need for ten costumes for 50 cents.
Glitter - Optional
I used some leftover snow glitter from another project.
Hot glue and gun
Broken hanger or stick
