Never Grow Up With This DIY Peter Pan and Tinkerbell Couples Costume
The older I get, the more I appreciate the idea of Neverland. First of all, you never grow up, which in itself is pretty awesome, and second of all, there’s a rainbow in the sky that never fades! Plus you’d get to hang out with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, two of the most iconic Disney characters there are.
What are we waiting for? Here we gooooo! Off to Neverland!
For Tink’s little green ensemble, I added DIY elements to items I purchased. I cut points into the hemline and cut a sweetheart neckline into a green short-sleeve dress I bought. I also bought green glittery shoes to which I glued white pom poms. Tink’s wings were fashioned out of wire and iridescent cellophane. I added translucent glittery ribbon on the wings as backpack straps and sewed some more ribbon on the neckline to hold the dress up. For a more detailed look on how I made Tink’s costume, click here.
Like Tink’s, Peter’s handsome outfit is really easy to put together! I bought an oversized green polo and cut points into the sleeves and hemline. Sean, our Channel Marketing Associate, brought his own brown moccasins and his excellent modelling skills. I made Peter’s classic hat by sewing together two felt triangles and gluing on a feather I cut from felt. I also tied a fake rubber knife around his hips with some brown webbing ribbon.
Ladies, be nice to your BFs and don’t force them to wear tights. While some guys may be game, I would say the vast majority would prefer to wear pants. I found some skinny green pants from Abercrombie & Fitch, and they worked perfectly to complete the outfit. You can get a full tutorial on how I made this Peter Pan costume here.
Second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning!
Yay! Tink to the rescue!
All you need is faith, trust and pixie dust.
Always the sassy one, that Tink.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
