For Halloween 2011, my 9 year old wanted to be an angel since she had been a darling devil the year before. I knew I could come up with a way to work a tutu into the costume so we set to work!
At first I was thinking a white tutu but she had the idea of going with gold to sort of be different, I LOVE how it turned out! I found some shimmery gold tulle rolls at JoAnns and whipped it up in an afternoon! You can see how I do it HERE.
I found a white shirt at the dollar store, used my cricut to cut out the words and freezer paper stencilled with to say "Angel with Attitude"! I found the wings and halo on sale at JoAnns while I was there to pick up the tulle :)
To complete the costume she just needed a long sleeve white shirt and leggings (it was chilly!) and a pair of white ballet flats, all of which she already had.
I am ALL ABOUT making super sweet but super SIMPLE costumes and using things you already have! I think I probably spent a total of $15 on her costume!
I think she pulls off the "Angel with Attitude" ... don't you? ;)
