One year for Halloween, my mom dressed up as an angel. But instead of just wearing a white gown, she layered multiple white items of various lengths and textures. She wore this when she took my little sisters trick or treating, so she wore an additional white sweater underneath for warmth.
She layered a white sundress over a polka dot white slip, which she wore over a floor length satin nightgown. Over this she wore two vintage robes and a feather boa. To make her outfit angelic, she wore feather wings and a halo headband.
Layering the short sleeve robes added volume to her shoulders.
Above are all the articles she wore (minus the white sundress she was still wearing).
Just texting her boss.
Looking for more Halloween costumes ideas? Well, it’s your lucky day, because I have all my DIY costumes (and decor tutorials too!) listed here.
I have a confession. I love Christmas. I love the lights, decorating my tree, playing “Sleigh Ride” by the Spice Girls- pretty much everything involving Christmas. Maybe you can blame it on my past retail experience, but I am one of those crazy people that decorates for Christmas before Thanksgiving.
So with that, I have a very simple DIY project for you! Last weekend, my local Goodwill put out all of their Christmas decor, and I picked up some inexpensive glass ornaments. I already had feathers in my crafting stash, so this was a pretty inexpensive holiday project.
This project is great for creating ornaments to match your holiday decor palette, or could be great to give as a gift. Check out the instructions below:
1. Gather your supplies: glass ornaments, feathers, and scissors.
2. Remove the ornament topper.
3. Gently feed your feather into the glass ornament.
4. Trim feather if it is too long.
5. Replace the ornament topper and hang that baby up!
