Handmade Hula Girl Halloween Costume

A hula girl costume is a Halloween favorite, but rather than dressing your little girl in a store-bought outfit, craft an original version to give her a look all her own.

Cut and Fold Crepe Paper for Lei

Cut several 5-by-5-inch squares out of both pink and white crepe paper. Place white square on top of pink square and fold the paper back and forth accordion-style (Image 2). Fold accordion in half lengthwise and crease to determine the center, then unfold. Use scissors to snip a small incision at the center without cutting all the way through (Image 3). Cut a piece of thread and tie it tightly around the folded crepe paper, sliding it into the cut slit at the center (Image 4).

Assemble Crepe Paper Lei

Use scissors to cut along each of the paper's folds being careful not to cut the center's string (Image 1). Next, use scissors to round folded paper's edges (Image 2). Pull petals apart and crease to create a flower blossom (Image 3). Repeat preceding steps to create five flowers then attach them to a long strand of kitchen twine (Image 4). Tie both ends of twine together to form a circular lei.
