At 4 pm:
"Jackie, I need an angel costume by tonight"
The 6 year old I watch needed an angel costume for his school play. No problem...except, I had to work with whatever we had on hand because there wasn't enough time to get anything else by that evening.
Halo: Silver pipe cleaners and sparkly string. Score.
Wings: Wire coat hangers and white stockings. You can also give a light coat of spray paint to make them whatever color you need.
Robe: White sheet. I only had a fitted sheet available so I cut off all the elastic and rounded the edges. I measured his head, cut a hole, then rolled up where his arms needed to go. I cut slits to make the arm holes and hot glued the edges together because my sewing machine was at home.
I'd say it's a pretty sweet costume for the hour I had to make it! I even found some silver garland for his sash and to cover the metal coat hanger.
