Tinkerbell Peeking through Porthole on Disney Magic

DIY Tinkerbell Costume

January 21, 2020 Sarah Coggins

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.

Tinkerbell Dress

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.

Fairy Wings

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.
