- Create the skirt from a piece of heavy cardboard that fi ts around your child’s waist. Drape with about 2 yards of white or blue satin. Use two lengths of white ribbon to create suspenders that hang over your child’s shoulders, and attach to skirt. Let your child help embellish satin with white pompoms and lace, rick rack, or other decorative tape to resemble a cake.
- Make the topper/hat from cardboard, and fasten sides together. Wrap with satin fabric, and top with faux flowers.
- Dress your child in white clothing, and then add skirt and topper/hat.
