My kids love dressing up! We normally shop a little resale shop in our town, not only for school clothes, but also for dress up accessories.
But this year, we decided to make our own costumes. My girls are going to be bopping to the 50′s in their matching poodle skirts, on the arm of their brother, also known as Elvis.
I found an easy, no-sew poodle skirt instructions here. (And I mean, easy!)
Basically, buy a couple of yards of felt (I found mine for 75% off!!).
I folded the felt into a square and made two basic cuts, per instructions.
We actually pinned the waist, but you could add a snap or velcro.
I got the little fabric poodle and embellishment for a couple of dollars at Wal Mart.
And then I hot glued them on!
My son made poodle skirts for the local spiders and ants.
For Elvis, we took a white t-shirt and glued some rhinestone bling that spells out ‘the king’.
We added a wig and some glasses and our icon is complete!
