Day to day life can be monotonous. Wake up, feed kids, dress kids, go to school, go to the store….you get the idea. So sometimes it is nice to escape real life for an adventure! Luckily, movies can do just that for us, and I was recently able to make a little escape of my own while viewing Oz the Great & Powerful.
This movie is just visually stunning. The colors are amazing, and I found myself immersed in this fantastical world. It was just so magical, and I couldn’t help but go along on the journey. And that journey involved a battle between good and evil, so I couldn’t help but give one of my gals a little Evanora makeover.
If you’re feeling a little mischievous, and want to make a headpiece of your own, here’s what you’ll need:
- stretchy elastic
- green beads
- some sort of background material (I used Gemz, but scrapbook paper would work wonderfully!)
- some sort of pocketwatch type container
- tulle/chiffon flower
- hot glue/gun
The pocketwatch that I got had it’s own background already, so I had to remove that first.
Then cut the Gemz or scrapbook paper or whatever backing you are using to the size of the back of the pocketwatch.
The Gemz that I used had an adhesive back, so I was able to just adhere it that way. If you are using paper, mod podge or even a glue stick would work just as well.
Put the beads in the pocketwatch. I used emerald green beads since that’s the color of Evanora’s necklace that held her power!
Hot glue the backing to the edge of the pocketwatch.
The next part you get to be creative with your feathers and flower. Hot glue them to the felt, then hot glue the pocketwatch in the center.
Measure a piece of elastic, and place it on the backing of the headpiece.
Cut another piece of felt, and hot glue it, sandwiching the elastic in securely.
And you’re done!
Now be prepared to meet the most evil little witch.
I know, she’s just cute, not so much evil. But she can still channel Evanora, right?
