Over the last few days I shared some pictures of the angel costumes I made for Lile and Sábha's first ever nativity show and of Lile and Sábha wearing said costumes. The pictures got lots of lovely 'likes' and, although no one asked for a tutorial, and all of the nativity shows are probably done and dusted at this stage, I'm going to stick one up anyway for future reference. So there.
You will need:
A white pillow-case
An old net curtain (or some white tulle)
Some gold 'rope' tinsel (or ordinary tinsel)
A length of elastic that will go around your child's waist
A hot glue gun (or some all purpose adhesive)
Fold the pillowcase in half, length-ways and cut along the lines demonstrated to create a neck hole and arm holes.
Glue the tinsel around the openings, working slowly to make sure it's even and that the two sides don't accidentally stick together (that didn't happen to me, I swear...) While you've got the glue gun going, you can also stick down the 'flappy' bit inside the pillowcase to stop it hanging down.
Tie the elastic around the waist of your child. Make sure it can still stretch enough to be pulled on/off.
Fold the net curtain in half and cut in strips about 2-inches wide. Or thereabouts, they don't need to be perfect.
(Next, put on the TV to help keep the child standing in one position while you -) Thread each strip under the elastic and tie a knot in the middle. Aim for the strips to meet the hem of the pillowcase 'dress' but accuracy is not essential. If they're too long, they can be trimmed later. If they're too short... they're too short... it'll still look cute. Keep going until the skirt is full.
Use some leftover tinsel to tie into a halo.
