On Thursday it's world Book Day and the girls have been asked to dress up as characters from their favourite book. Well Boo was set on being the Gruffalo's child and I was incredibly lucky to win a fantastic costume from Boo, Roo and Tigger Too. All I have to do is make her a Mr Stick and she's ready to go. Star decided she'd like to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, we recently reviewed a gorgeous new book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Star has fallen in love with this old story. So I managed to get her a Dorothy dress and a little basket carrying Toto. All we needed was the Ruby slippers. I spent an entire evening searching the internet for them with no luck. The ones I did find would have taken too long to get here or were way too expensive. So I decided to spruce up a pair of party shoes.
I bought some glue, glitter and red sequins and got to work.
Here is my work in progress;
I'm thinking they won't look so sparkly at the end of the day when most of the glitter and sequins have come off!
