DIY Tooth Fairy Costume

Do you ever have a weird accident that turns into something pretty awesome? Well, I did. I was writing out my schedule for the day, and I wrote how long each task would take. For one task, I wrote 2 plus hours- "2+H". When I read the list back over, I thought I wrote 2th. And that's when I realized 2th=tooth!! This really silly idea came after, and I kinda love how cheesy it is. You can be either a tooth with a crown, or a tooth fairy. The choice is yours!

This costume is the second one in my easy t-shirt costume series. For this one, I went with a tried and trusted t-shirt made for customizing- Gildan! They're the ones you find at craft stores in pretty much any color you want. They're 100% cotton and really comfy. No, this post wasn't sponsored by them. I genuinely think they're awesome! Plus this t-shirt cost like $4. Can't beat that! It's a great last-minute costume for that Halloween party you've got coming up!

  1. Print out 2th as a template. I used the font Abadi MT condensed super bold, size 200.
  2. Place your template printed side down on your gold paper and tape it in place. You'll want to use a few small pieces of tape in different places so it doesn't fly off while you're cutting. 
  3. Cut out your 2th, being careful to stay within the lines. You can also use an x-acto knife if that's easier, but I found the scissors worked just fine. 
  4. Try on your shirt and mark lightly with a pencil where you want the letters to go. 
  5. Using a gluegun, glue the letters onto your shirt. For a more temporary option, use double stick tape, but it might not adhere as well.

 

Crown:

  1. Cut a rectangle measuring 3 inches by 6 inches
  2. Draw small lines going 1.5 inches from the top, and make dashes every 1 inch. 
  3. Connect the lines to the top in a triangle shape. 
  4. Cut out the triangles
  5. Roll the crown into a circle and glue the seam shut. Trim any excess from where the two ends meet
  6. Glue your crown onto a piece of felt. Trim the excess. 
  7. Cut a small piece of felt and glue it onto your hair clip or headband, then glue the felt to your crown.

Fun fact: I am the queen of making weird and unattractive faces in photos. My sister and friends have a folder labeled "ugly Cathy photos", where I try to be silly but end up looking plain hideous. My sister, on the other hand, is great at looking silly but AMAZING. So... there's that haha. 

You can wear this costume with a pair of white jeans, or a tutu. The choice is yours! Add a pair of wings if you want, and you're ready to go!
