Quick princess costume for toddler

So I was a total slacker Mom when it came to Halloween costumes this year.  I didn't spend hours sewing and hot gluing instead I made the boys all dig through our giant box of boy costumes.  But that left E without a costume since she didn't have any desire to be a cowboy or Star wars character.  So I whipped up a little princess costume.  So easy.  Quick too.  I've learned my lesson in the past after spending hours making adorable toddler costumes and then ending up with a toddler screaming on the floor refusing to be a puppy.  Don't invest too much time in 2 year olds costumes!

I used my own Tutu Tutorial but used elastic instead of ribbon and then made a pretty princess hat with this tutorial from Skip to my Lou.  I made the hat a little bigger than she did because I wanted it to fit over her head.  I didn't worry about making the hat perfect either especially since I wasn't sure E would even wear it but the glitter on the crown won her over.  I also made the entire ensemble to match her rain boots that she LOVES and wears everywhere.  Success.  Now we just need to teach her to say "Trick or treat".  

Have a Happy Halloween!
