1. Cut out four "peel" shapes from yellow craft foam.
2. Use them as a template to trace and cut out the same shapes from your white craft foam.
3. Hot glue a yellow peel to a white peel. Repeat with the remaining ones.
4. Put on your outfit and literally just tuck the foam peels into your skirt! THAT'S IT!! You can safety pin them for extra security if necessary.
