Cleopatra: The head piece

To complete our Cleopatra look,
we will be showing you how to create the
elegant headpiece she wears!
Let's Get Started!

Hot glue gun
Jewelry (Pearls, etc.)

Step 1- We found the strings of pearls at our
local craft store (in the jewelry section)
and our mom gave us her old ring that
she didn't wear anymore.

Step 2- Arrange your pieces
in any way that you want, and hot
glue them into place.

Step 3- Let them dry for a few seconds.

Step 4- Fasten to your doll's head with bobby pins.

Done! We hope you enjoyed!

Cleopatra: The Dress

Today we will be making a Cleopatra dress for your doll!
Let's get started!

Fancy fabric (we used an old t-shirt)
Sewing machine/needle and thread
A doll (for measurement)

Step 1- Like our witch skirt, you need to measure 
where you want your dress to start. Cut out your material

Step 2- We decided to use the sleeve of the shirt to
create a sleeve for the dress.

Step 3- Sew all of your edges together. You may
need to use a needle and thread for fine tuning.

Step 4- We decided to make a cut off sleeve.

Step 5- Done!

We hope you enjoyed this craft!

The Witch Costume: The Skirt

Hello there crafters! Today, we will be 
showing you how to make the first part in our witch's costume.
This is the skirt! Let's get started!

Old Petticoat (or something of that material)
Sewing Machine (or needle and thread)
Safety pin
elastic (if your petticoat didn't have any)
Myfroggystuff's how to make a doll skirt video (for help)

Step 1- Using your doll as a guide, measure a length of the petticoat
that can wrap around your doll (about twice). Cut it out.

Step 2- Using a safety pin, run your elastic through the
casing that was already in your petticoat.

Step 3- Pull the elastic to make a gather.

Step 4- Sew the edges together, making sure it can still
fit your doll.

Step 5- Done! Pair it with dark leggings, and
the first part of your costume is done!

I hope you enjoyed!
