Halloween Tiara  

Posted by: Julie

We've been busy getting ready for Halloween
and Trick or Treating.
This year we'll be participating in Truck or Treat at our church.

Do ya'll know what Trunk or Treat is?

It's when you line up cars in a church parking lot, open up the trunks and decorate your car and trunk for fall.

Then all the children from the neighborhood walk around in their cutie costumes and "Trick or Treat" or "Trunk or Treat" :-)

(the above is not a picture of my "trunk")

We've been going to these events for a while, but this will be our first year setting up a "trunk" to give out treats. Of course the kids (and maybe even me) will dress up to get into the spirit of things. Jessica decided she wanted to be "Miss America" so we started looking through my old formal dresses to see if we could find something that would work for her.

The dress that works best just happens to be black.
Very pretty, but not so much "Miss America".

Instead, she'll be going as "Miss Halloween".

Black dress, orange sash with "Miss Halloween" written in black and a few black spiders in her pretty red hair.

And what "Miss Halloween" would be complete without a tiara?

I bought her a pretty little silver plastic tiara similar to this one:
(I totally forgot to take a pic of the actual one we bought)

To make it more fitting for Halloween, I pulled out my trusty can of black spray paint and gave it a quick spritz. I let it dry then used a little white glue and glitter to add some orange sparkle to the tiara.

I really like how it turned out and she is thrilled with it!
