On our recent Disney Cruise, our daughter wanted to dress up like Tinkerbell for Pirate Night. I didn’t want to spend a lot on a fancy costume so I got creative and put one together. It came out so cute and she loved her special Tinkerbell costume.
I toyed with making a costume dress myself using solid green fabric, but quickly opted to purchase one instead. I went with a simple sundress style for ease and comfort. I wanted something she would be able to wear all day on the cruise ship, if she wanted.

Since our cruise was in December and I realized it might be cool on deck for the Pirate Night show, we added a white long sleeve shirt and glittery leggings underneath for added warmth.
Floral Fairy Headband
Fairies need fancy headwear. Knowing my daughter is not a big fan of barrettes, I decided to make a floral headband for her. This was a simple and inexpensive DIY project. I purchased flowers and headbands from the Dollar Tree.
I plucked the flowers and some of the leaves off the stems.
Then went wild hot gluing them to the headband. In a matter of minutes I had a cute, floral headband perfect for my little fairy.
Finally, we completed our Tinkerbell costume with green fairy wings thanks to help from our neighbor. I had put off getting a new pair from the Dollar Tree and, unfortunately, learned the hard way these are a seasonal (think spring to Halloween) item. Thank goodness her neighborhood bestie had a pair and was willing to share.
