DIY Hallowen Costume – Tinkerbell Shoes

diy-tinkerbell-shoes-2

Halloween costumes are brought up months in advance in our house and so much thought is given by a certain little pre schooler as to what she will be (as with most kids her age. Or any age, really). So when it was finally decided (and confirmed about 100 times) that she would be Tinkerbell this year, I hunted around and found a great costume on Amazon for her. The costume is adorable, fits her great, and has green wings but we both felt like something was missing…and since I guess I have thing with making the shoes of Halloween costumes (ahem, ruby slippers) we decided she needed a pair of Tinkerbell booties for her costume. Thankfully they were so easy to make with just a few supplies. Here’s how I did it:

You will need: green slipper socks (not pictured, I bought these), scissors, and white yarn.

First, make 2 pompoms. Loop the white yarn around your 4 fingers, then tie about a 3-inch piece of yarn around the middle of your loops. I used 18 feet of yarn, I wanted a very full and fluffy pompom!

Carefully cut the loops at the center on both sides of the middle tie.

Fluff to make a full pompom and trim so all yarn pieces are (roughly) the same length.

To secure he pompom to the green slipper socks I just cut 2 small holes into the sock and tied to pieces are yarn through the holes.

Ps. Final costume reveal on Halloween, sorry!.
