Need an easy last minute Halloween costume that’s a floral phenomenon? This flower petal skirt is your jam.
You will need:
- paint in your choice of color (watercolor or acrylic)
- sharpie or pen to draw a petal shape
- cute string/twine
- 24×18″ poster board (the amount will vary on how large you make your petals
- hole puncher
Sketch out the shape of a petal on the poster board and cut it out! Repeat with as many petals as necessary (we made a few extra petals so they would overlap when the skirt was put on).
Paint your petals! We used a mix of pinks, coral, and yellow. Watercolor paints make for a light, delicate look, while acrylic paints are a little more bold. We mixed a little water with our acrylic paints for a look right in between.
Hole punch (or give them a little stab with the scissors, depending on how dangerously you live) two small holes on the top of each petal, one on each of the furthest top outer corners. String the petals together with string of your choice. It doesn’t show very much once the petals are strung together, but we chose to use a pretty, metallic ribbon. Because why not more shine??
