ST. PATRICK'S DAY RAINBOW FEATHER CROWN DIY

I loved this St. Patrick's Day rainbow feather crown from last year so much I thought I'd share it with you again!

Obsessed with feather crowns over here! So why not make one for St. Patrick's Day? This DIY is pretty fast and easy but still packs a colorful punch. 

Here's what you'll need: colored feathers, gold headband, gems, hot glue gun, scissors. To start, choose your feathers in a rainbow of your liking:

Trim the stems so that all the feathers are close to the same length:

Turn the headband inside out and glue the feathers with a hot glue gun to the inner middle of the band:

Choose your gems:

Turn headband right side out. Place gems below the headband to make sure you like the configuration first. Then glue them on band with hot glue gun:

And you're done! Now you can go chasing leprechauns and pots of gold.

SIAOMIMI PLAY COSTUMES FOR HALLOWEEN

I love pieces that can be worn year after year. I got this Siaomimi fairy dress and tiara for Mila when she was one. She wore it that Halloween, last year and for dressing up this year too!

I first fell in love with Siaomimi at Auntie Barbara's, and have since discovered that Koko Blush, Merry Love Joy and Barneys carry several pieces. Here are some more of my favorite costumes from the line.

ICE QUEEN COSTUME

Mila is obsessed with "Frozen" so I set out to put together an ice queen-inspired costume. I love a costume that doesn't require any new purchases, so I pulled together some items from her closet for this getup. There are so many possibilities for what could work here (we went with pink instead of the omnipresent blue). Here's what we used:

Sparkly dress: Le Pink by Little Mass

Feather cape: Tutu Du Monde via Shop Belle

Knit crown: Oeuf 

Teepee: Fire and Creme Kids

We gave Sven a Meri Meri Nutcracker hat and satin ribbon bow, making him fit to serve as the royal attendant.
