Now, not only is this fairy costume magical, but it also makes a great last minute idea.
You'll need a pink outfit, a tiara, star stickers and/or body glitter, glitter, and string. For the wings you'll need nine gauge aluminum wire, duct tape, pantyhose, pipe cleaners, and ribbon. Begin by creating the wire wings. Start with a coiled roll of nine gauge aluminum wire, available at hardware stores. Cut a 13 foot length and tape the ends of the wire as they can be sharp. Bend the wire in half creating a small loop at the end, use pliers if necessary. About eight inches up from the loop form a large wing shape with one half of the wire, repeat on the other side. Close the wings with a twist and reinforce them with duct tape. Form a triangle about five by eight by eight inches above the loop from step one. Twist and trim the ends so they don't protrude from the triangle, and then duct tape them. Cut the legs off a pair of queen size pantyhose. Then stretch one leg over one wing, secure the pipe cleaner and stretch the excess over the triangle. Then, repeat on the other side. So that the wings can be worn like a backpack, tie the middle of a seven foot piece of ribbon to the bottom of the triangle. Next, have your fairy put on a tiara and her pink outfit. Add some star stickers and/or body glitter to her arms and cheeks, hand her a vile of fairy dust glitter tied to a necklace with string. And finally, help your fairy princess put on her wire wings. You look great. Once you know how to make the wings, get creative with your costume. Make a beautiful butterfly, a flying pig, or even a lucky ladybug."
