Pixie Costume

Follow these simple directions to create a Pixie costume.

Time: 2-3 hours

Effort: Fairly easy - no sewing required


  • Dance skirt (from a dance supply store)
  • Leotard
  • White leggings
  • Spray-on glitter for clothing (from a craft store)
  • Wire
  • Floral tape
  • Fake flowers
  • Ribbon
  • Ballet slippers
  • Body glitter
  • Wings (from your local department store)

Instructions: Spray white leggings with the glitter to make pants. To make floral crown, take a semi-thick wire and estimate the length to fit around the child's head, allowing an inch extra. Then make a hoop and twist the ends together. Take the floral tape and wrap the wire. As you do this, tape in flowers. Then take ribbon and make a bow in the back and let the ribbons hang down. When finished, put on, add wings to the back of the leotard and - voila - cute pixie!

Tips: If you have a little bag or pouch, you can place craft glitter inside for pixie dust. Make sure to put a lot of glitter on to make it last and for effect.
