My Little Christmas Tree Angel Costume



Here’s how I made my Christmas Tree Angel costume:

I started with an old flower girl dress that was floor length.  I turned up the bottom so the skirt was half the length and hand stitched a few spots.  I then took some thin rope light and hand sewed it to the bottom and added bows and red jewels,  I used fabric glitter glue to give the top a Christmasy feel and added some feathers to the shoulders.  I hand sewed (see a theme here – I can’t sew at all on a sewing machine) a pocket on the underskirt and slipped the battery pack to the rope light in there.   On the back off the dress I added two snaps to attach her wings and complete the angel costume.

I purchased some pine tree garland on Amazon and then went to Goodwill and found a skirt to attach it to.  I hand stitched three rows of garland to the dress.  I then cut two strips out of another scrap of fabric left over from recovering some barstools and made straps that go over my daughter’s shoulders.

Next I decorated the “tree” with battery operated christmas lights, red bows and silver and gold jingle bells.

I purchased a light up halo on amazon and added more feathers and some pretty silver and white tube ribbon.  I also purchased white feather wings and added feathers and snaps.

For the final step, the trunk, I simply purchased brown knee high boots for $10.
