DIY PRINCESS CAPE
It's well known, little girls love to dress up as princess. It can be classics like Cinderella and Snow White or modern princesses like Merida or Rapunzel. So for a great animation for a princess-themed birthday party, we had a great idea. We took tissue paper, string and card stock and made a simple princess cape that guests will love!
This idea was inspired by the great blog By Little Ones, a goldmine of ideas for creative minds.
