Making my own DIY Vanellope Von Schweetz costume was not an easy undertaking, at least not for me, the least crafty mom on the block. Halfway through, I felt WAY in over my head and wanted to chuck the wig stand right through the window as I was trying to make the hair clips. But, I persisted and am happy that I did.
