cactus t-shirt costume

Are you looking for an easy costume to make this year? Look no more! This Cactus Costume is super easy and super on trend!
Step 1
Iron the shirt. Insert the form into the T-shirt and smooth the shirt out with your hands. 
Step 2
Choose the lightest green chenille stems from the packages. Cut each one into five pieces, then fold each piece into a "V" shape. 
Step 3
Hot glue the folded chenille stems, at the bend of the "V" shape, all over the front of the T-shirt and sleeves. Set aside. 
Step 4
To make the cactus bloom for the shirt, wrap the Fuchsia tulle around your hand about 15-20 times. Slide this off of your hand and tie a piece of tulle around the middle of the loops. Cut the loops open and fluff. Trim any excess tulle and shape. Hot glue the bloom to one of the shoulders of the shirt. 
Step 5
To make the hair bloom, cut a piece of cardboard about 6"-8" and wrap tulle around it 20-25 times. Slide off the cardboard and tie a piece of tulle around the middle of the loops. Cut the loops open and fluff. Hot glue the bloom to a barrette.
