Nesting Doll Costume

This costume is one of my favorites. When I was a little girl I would play with Russian Nesting Dolls for hours. This costume gets even better if you have several girls in different sizes- ha! Don’t forget to add those bright circles on your cheeks as a finishing touch! See all of our Homemade Halloween ideas by clicking here. 



Materials: Silk flowers, 2 Shawls, Red lipstick, Red tights, Vintage dress

The trick to this costume is piling the flowers underneath your head shawl. If you wanted to make sure they stayed in place, you could glue them to a headband. But we found they stayed secure when tightly placed under the shawl. To finish, tie another shawl around your neck and paint red circles onto your cheeks with lipstick.
