If you are looking for a beautiful costume to wear for Halloween, and you want to be the most powerful witch in Oz, then dress up in a Glinda the Good Witch costume. In the 1939 movie, Glinda is the one who welcomes Dorothy to Oz and sends her off to see the Wizard.

Ain’t She Crazy has a good tutorial for the Glinda crown. Mommy Blessings also has useful information about how to make fairy tale crowns. Craftster also has some helpful information for those trying to make their own crown.
