Last Minute Halloween Ideas

In case you couldn’t tell from all the pumpkins, skeletons, and bloody, rubber everything, Halloween is coming up. I thought I’d squeeze in one last post with some past ideas I’ve shared to help get you ready. (What that really means is I didn’t get around to doing any Halloween projects this year so I’m recycling to make up for it. So, sorry for the repeats you’ve already seen!)

I will always love this one though because those plastic tiaras are the worst. Here is an easy way to make them more comfortable and actually stay on your little princess this year. Hashtag Elsa ­čÖé

Make a pain-free costume tiara

For all of the Halloween princesses out there, I am reblogging a post I did a few months ago. Here is a really easy way to make a costume tiara stay on and feel comfortable. ???????????????????????????????

I’m not sure whose head they had in mind when they made these plastic tiaras, but they seem to draw blood from all of the heads in our house. I mean for fifty cents I don’t expect a custom fit, but it should at least not require a trip to the emergency room.

Since this was a gift, I hated to just throw it away. I thought I would experiment to see if I could find a way for my daughter to wear this thing comfortably.

Not too comfortably, though. I really don’t want to encourage the everyday use of a tiara.

Believe it or not, this thing actually had little tiny, plastic screws that held it together. Once I got those two screws out, the fancy part just came right off!

???????????????????????????????

I just used two plain hair clips and hot glued the tiara to the pincher part of the clip. Be sure not to glue the tiara over the entire opening of the pincher, because then it won’t open and close.

???????????????????????????????

Now it just clips right into her hair like barrettes and the little royal princess can play pain free!
