Take the shoelaces out before painting the shoes. Paint sections and sprinkle glitter on before it dries.
Cut fabric into circles approximately 4 inches in diameter. Hot glue cycles onto shirt, overlapping them. Hot glue sequins on the straps. *If your shirt is stretchy, make sure to put it over a chair or have someone hold their arms inside to stretch it, otherwise the fabric circles will pop off when you put it on. We learned this the hard way!
Tulle – we bought 8 rolls from the Michael’s wedding section and didn’t have any left over. Keep in mind that sparkly tulle has a lot less fabric than regular tulle.
Elastic – 1/4 inch will work great
To measure how long the tulle strips should be, fold a portion in half and place next to your waist. Make them double the length you want to stick out from the elastic. For a puffier tutu that sticks straight out, cute them shorter. Fit the elastic to your waist and tie in a circle. After tying on all of the tulle strips, you’ll probably need to re-tie and cut the elastic because it tends to stretch out.
Use eyelash glue to attach sequins to your arms, chest and face. And don’t forget bright colored lipstick!

Instead of spending $50-$60 on a baggy Santa outfit for Santacon, I got a little crafty. I cut the top of used x-mas sweater for an off-the-shoulder look and hot glued fur around the collar and cuffs.

All you need is 1/4 inch elastic and at least 4 spools of 50ft tulle, which you can get from Michaels or any craft store. Keep in mind that sparkly tulle has a lot less fabric than regular tulle.
1. Measure out the elastic to fit your waist and tie in a circle. After tying on all of the tulle strips, you’ll probably need to re-tie and cut the elastic because it tends to stretch out.
2. To measure how long the tulle strips should be, fold a portion in half and place next to your waist. Make them double the length you want to stick out from the elastic. For a puffier tutu that sticks straight out, cut them shorter. I would recommend longer to start and if you want to make it stick out more, just cut it once you put it on.
3. Fold the tulle strip in half and loop the open end over the elastic and through the folded end. Don’t pull too tight so you can move the tulle around and fluff it up.
