I love this costume because it’s probably something that most gals have ready to go in their closet. I actually got the idea from one of my office mates who went as Rosie last year. In addition to the three key elements, a vintage hair ‘do completes the look. For mine, I teased my grown out bangs forward and then swooped them back and secured with bobby pins and hair spray. I secured the rest of my hair into a low pony tail and pined it upwards to lay smooth under the bandana. Polka dots are great, but any red scarf will do the trick. Finally, red lips aren’t a must, but I felt like they pulled everything together. Get ready to flex those biceps!

1.On a small piece of scrapbook paper, copy the heart pattern above by drawing a heart that continues into an upside-down heart that becomes a right-side-up heart and so on {so much fun I could do it for hours!}. Do it diagonally from one end of the paper all the way across to the opposite side.
2.With a pair of small scissors, cut along the top side of the hearts to create the stencil.
3.Place the stencil along the upper lid, just above the lash line and fill in the spaces with the liquid liner, starting in the inside corner and going a few “scallops” out past the lash line. I placed the stencil straight for the lash line and at a slight diagonal for the “wing.”
4.Go back with the liner and sweep it along lash line to connect the semi-circles.
5.Smooth out any mishaps with a pointed q-tip. If the liquid has already dried, dip the q-tip into eye makeup remover first.

Put your hair in a bun, swipe a sparkly blush on your cheeks, and add a shiny pink lip gloss to complete this beauty look.

TULLE-SKIRT

Learn the art of the No-Sew Tulle Skirt from Living Well Spending Less… You can be a ballerina, a princess, or Glinda the Good Witch!

Step 1: Grab a length of tulle and fold it over, then measure it against your model to see how long the pieces will be that you have to cut. This is not an exact science, but better slightly too long than too short!.

Step 2: Cut your first piece based on your measurement, then cut remaining pieces until tulle is all cut.

Step 3: Lay pieces flat on top of each other, then cut in half, starting in the middle of the folded edge.

Step 4: Measure a piece of elastic around your model’s waist and tie in place. Don’t knot it too tightly, as you may have to adjust it after the skirt is finished.

Step 5: Take a piece of tulle and loop it around the elastic, pulling the two ends through the loop as shown.

Step 6: Pull to tighten loop, but do not tighten all the way until all the tulle is on the elastic so that you can adjust as necessary.

Step 7: Continue looping the tulle pieces onto the elastic until they are gone. Make sure tulle is evenly spaced on elastic.

Step 8: Place skirt on model. Trim bottom of skirt to make it floor length. Adjust elastic as necessary. Tighten tulle loops and you’re done!
