Last year, I posted a wrap-up of my Halloween that included some fun photos of my costume (along with those of my friends). I got asked a lot of questions about my costume, so I figured I’d write a quick post about it. Last year, James and I went as the tooth fairy and a tooth (cute, right?). If you’re looking for a cheap and easy idea for the holiday, I highly suggest trying to make a tooth fairy Halloween costume.
Tooth Fairy Halloween Costume DIY
- a tutu (I chose white, since it goes with everything and teeth are white!)
- a tiara
- a solid-colored tank top, T-shirt or sweater (I chose a pink tank)
- a pair of fairy wings
- wooden dowel
- a foot or so of plain white fabric
- sewing needle & thread
It doesn’t take much to make this costume. For the top, I just drew an outline of a tooth on the white fabric, cut it out and then sewed it onto my tank top. For the wand, I did the same, but stuffed the tooth a little with polyfill before attaching it to the top of the dowel and sewing it shut. You can also buy a wand and tooth shirt yourself, but I liked making my own and being able to customize it.
Tooth Halloween Costume DIY
- black top and pants
- a few feet of white fabric
- sewing needle and thread
- two 8-inch straps of sturdy black fabric/ribbon
To sew the tooth, trace the outline four time on your white fabric. You can make this any size you like, but I suggest making it a little smaller than your stomach/chest area, since that’s where it will hang.
Cut the shapes out and line 2 of them up and pin prior to sewing. Sew the 2 pieces of fabric together, leaving a small hole for the stuffing. Stuff the tooth with polyfill and sew up the hole. Repeat with the other 2 pieces (one tooth is for the front of your body, one is for the back).
Connect the two with sturdy pieces of fabric or ribbon (make sure you sew these tight so they don’t fall off in the middle of the night!) This way, you can put the “tooth” on and off by simply slipping it over your head.
The end result
