I came up with this last minute Halloween costume idea last week when I was thinking about the quote "we are all made of stars" that I posted about. I thought it would be so cool to come full circle and make a costume based on it. So I imagined draping myself with gilded stars and thought it would take at the most 20 minutes to complete.
It didn't take too long, but it wasn't the breezy 20 minutes I expected either. I think part of the problem was I didn't want to ruin my black shirt and wanted to make something to just hang over my clothes. Just gluing all the stars to my shirt would have been easier.
I was going to label this a DIY fail, but I figured
--2 black pipe cleaners
--1 roll of black ribbon
--Hot glue gun
Then glue varying lengths of black ribbon onto the front of the shape and hot glue all your stars onto the ribbon strands in a mismatched pattern.
Now for the headband. Take an extra star and glue a pipe cleaner to the back of it.
And you're done!
Have you ever had a project that didn't turn out the way you expected/wasn't as easy as you thought? Happy (almost) Halloween everyone!
