Princess Peach is an icon. I mean, I’ve been a fan of hers since 1985, and today my kids are fans, too. Which means I’ve been playing Nintendo for 35 years, but HOLY COW let’s save that for another post! Today I want to share with you how to make a super easy no-sew DIY Princess Peach costume for kids.
Easy No-Sew DIY Princess Peach Costume
There’s lots to love about this costume, but what I love the most is that it was easy. Also, you don’t need to use exactly the same items as I did here. You can definitely swap out the dress for another one, or make little adjustments here and there based on what you have available.
When I make a costume, I use the original character as more of a guideline rather than stress out too much about the details (which you probably don’t want to hear if you’re into the details, but remember, we’re keeping this easy). Another reason I don’t get too lost in the details is that my kids will wear their costumes for years to come after Halloween is over. They immediately become play things (which is fantastic).

Here’s what you need to make your Peach costume! Remember – if you can’t find exactly what you see here, you can swap it out for whatever is available. You could also bypass this completely and just buy a costume, like this cute one here – I won’t judge! (Honestly, my kids let me make them costumes but then want store-bought ones for Halloween, because of course they do).
Pink Dress – I bought a long pink dress on Amazon and planned on adding dark pink layers around the hips and hem, but turns out ain’t nobody got time for that. So we rolled with just the pink dress, and guess what? It was perfect.
Craft glue (any will do, but I always have some E6000 on hand) or a glue gun
How to make your No-Sew Princess Peach Costume
Here’s is the easy part (ALL OF IT is the easy part, woohoo!).
Using your craft glue, glue the jewels to the crown and clip-on earring backs. I used the actual Princess Peach crown as a guide, alternating red and blue. Glue the a blue jewel to the front of the dress.
Using the gold puffy paint, draw a line around the jewel on the dress. I used a fat line of gold puffy paint around the jewel to match the gold lining Princess Peach has on her dress. I actually did a few layers, and while the actual drawing doesn’t take long, it will take some time to dry. This is the longest wait time you’ll have on this whole costume – just letting the puffy paint dry!
That’s it! It really is that simple.
