Last year Michelle, a New York Bumpie, dressed her daughter as a flowering potted plant and, as you can see, it was adorable! Learn how to turn your girl into a flower (worthy of a photo shoot with Anne Geddes!).

What You Need:

  • Brown tights
  • Brown tutu
  • Green shirt or sweater
  • Headband
  • Faux flowers
  • Hot glue

How to Make It:

  • Hot-glue the flowers to the headband. (Do it at least a day in advance to let the glue cool and set.)
  • Dress your daughter in her tights, tutu, top and headband.

Add Something Extra:

  • Glue or sew faux leaves onto the shirt, too.
  • Have her carry a watering can (makes for a cute accessory and candy holder).
