        Hi Rachel! I just made a yarn pom-pom (there are tons of tutorials on Pinterest if you aren’t sure how to do that), stuck a green pipe cleaner in the middle, and hot glued it all to a headband. I hope that helps!ReplyCancel

      I love this costume! So clever and darling! I wanted to double check that on whether or not you did the back sides of the sweatshirt and pants as you painted them? I’m thinking it’s an obvious yes, but I just want to be sure!ReplyCancel
