Jester and King
Nothing could take the jingle out of your court’s jolly jester. Start with bright and cheery attire like two-tone tights,
a tee accented with grosgrain ribbon, and swap out shoelaces for ribbons with bells attached to the ends (get the how-tos). His royal highness has a few wardrobe demands. Start with a plush robe and slippers, which are both embellished with cupcake
liners. The golden crown and staff are made from safety pins, an empty wrapping paper roll, and wiffle ball (get the how-tos).
