Halloween Craft Time with Holly Dolly

I may not have been able to make up Holly's costume this year as I wanted to, but I'm still going to pat myself on the back for making her a tail to go with her little peacock leotard (at 4 days overdue); here's how I created her half-home-made costume this year:
 A few supplies from Michaels ...
 Cut out with a paper template I created myself
 This is what I used for the base of the tail, it is sparkley "stiffened" felt...I then proceeded to glue the pieces together (I also tacked them with thread because Holly is a little wild when she dances). I used two simple elastic loops for her arms...




Not bad for a little make-do tail to go with her leotard, don't you think? Of course, having a model that cute always helps. Happy Halloween!
