Live in a warmer climate? This adorable Hula Girl costume idea can be made quite inexpensively using items found at your local dollar store.
Grass Skirt (Dollar Store) or Make Your Own
Hawaiian Lei Flowers (Dollar Store)
This one doesn't need a lengthy explanation, simple dress your child in a pair of shorts and attach a grass skirt (which are available at your local dollar store). You can attach lei flowers to the top of the skirt using hot glue. Create a bikini top by cutting an old t-shirt and attaching multiple flowers using a hot glue gun or the old fashioned way- with a needle and thread.
Adorn her hair with flowers.
I know I shouldn't have to specify this, but I will - Please attach items with the hot glue gun BEFORE your child puts the costume on.
