Step 4: Finishing

I finished the costume by sewing on a string of beads and gluing on trim to add further decoration to the trees.  Then I stacked the inner and outer dresses with the wrong sides together and tacked them together at the open shoulder seams and necklines. 

I placed a wire around the hem of the tree to make it stand out in a circle.

I finished the shoulder seam with Velcro so it was easier for the girls to get over their heads and close up.

A quick vinyl star attached to a spring on a headband topped off the costumes. 

I hope you have fun designing and lighting up your own Christmas tree costumes - the possibilities are limitless.  And the costumes are great for after-dark trick-or-treating, as they provide their own light source!
Where did you find the lights?
