Materials Needed:

Red 5 Layer Tutu

White Strappy Leotard (or, White Leotard with Sleeves)

Black 8″ Crochet Top

3/8″ Red Grosgran Ribbon (about 2.5 yards)

Red/White Stripe Leg Warmers

Red Bandana and Pirate Accessories from Party Store

Scissors

Lighter

A binder or piece of cardboard or maybe a small chair back–something to stretch your top on. I used binder because it was handy :)

Corset Top Instructions:

Materials:

Step One:

Take your 8” crochet top and stretch it over the binder (or whatever you’re using as a stretching piece). Try to make sure it is pretty centered so that the seam is running up the middle of the backside.

Step Two:

Find what you believe to be the closet hole to center in the second row up from the bottom (This doesn’t need to be perfect, I doubt you’ll be so far off as to be a noticeable difference, but if you are anal, feel free to count it off lol).

Then, thread one end of your 3/8” ribbon through the hole that is 3 to the right of that center hole. Repeat with the other end of the ribbon and three holes to the left (I’m glad we have pictures to help explain what I am not good at explaining).

**Note**make sure that each side of your ribbon is relatively the same length. Otherwise it will cause you headaches later**

Step Three:

Now cross the two ends of the ribbon so that the right is now on the left and vice versa. Count two holes up from where you just threaded the ribbon through, and thread it back up from the back of the crochet top up to the top again.

Step Four:

Next, cross the ribbons back over each other again to make an “X” shape. Then count up two holes from the ones where you just poked your ribbon through and poke them back down to the backside again. You can see now how this is starting to look the way we want it to.

step4

Step Five:

Continue to lace the ribbon up the top until you reach the last row you are able to bring you ribbons up through. You should be able to get three of your “X” shapes on there.

step5

Step Six:

Tie a bow at the top and trim your ribbon to the length you desire. Use your lighter to heat seal the ends of the ribbon so that they don’t fray.

**Note**You might want to wait until you have this on the child it is going to be used by before you trim the ribbon.

We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will come back to learn more ways to style your little princess!

Tutorial: How to Make a Princess Parade Halo

I always used to love these when I was little, and there was always a guy selling them at parades and carnivals and things like that. I would beg and beg, but my mom would say she wasn’t going to buy something that she could make so easily. Trouble is, she never made me one! :( Sad huh?

Well, don’t let that happen to your little girl lol. Or any other little girl you know! These princess halos are so cost effective and easy to make that you could make a ton.

Let’s get started.

You will need:

I am a total patriot–so even just the supplies look fun to me! Lol

Foil Garland (whatever styles/colors you want)

Curling ribbon–the egg kind is good because it totally curls for you. But you can use scissors to curl the other kind if it isn’t curly enough. Again, whatever styles and colors you like.

Scissors

Directions:

Unravel the ends off of one of your garland rounds and measure a piece long enough to fit your subjects head. You’ll want to cut it about 2″-3″ longer than you need for wrapping purposes.

Use the piece you just cut to measure and cut your other garland pieces to about the same size.

Now wrap your garland pieces around each other a little bit and form them into a round  keeping the opening about the size you will need for your subject’s head. Wrap the ends together using that 2″-3″ extra length that you kept.

That could be cute be cute all by itself, don’t you think?

But, we’re going to go ahead and add us some streamers.

So, cut some long strands off of each of your curling ribbon rolls. Mine ended up being about 2 yards I think, but I cut some off after I tied it.

Now make a loop in the center of your curling ribbon strands and put it through the opening of your halo like this. Sorry for the cruddy picture. It is hard to make curly ribbon lie flat :)

Now pull the long ends of your curling ribbon up through your loop and pull tight. The same way I did with the tulle in the tutu tutorial here.

Tie a pretty bow with your long curling ribbon ends.

Ta da! All done. Wasn’t that easy? And fun? Don’t you want to make a bajillion?

You can also embellish these by putting rhinestones, buttons, or flowers in the center of your bow. Or even adding some ribbon to your curly tail mix. Whatever puts a smile on your face!  Fairy Halos are just such a hit.  You could wear them to a parade, or make them for your daughters fairy or princess birthday party.

Now that you know how to make them, you could sell them at carnivals and festivals.  They are also great for Booster Clubs and PTA for fundraisers as well.  We have wholesale cheap supplies because we are the manufacturer and distributor.  Please visit our online shop to purchase all of our items, always on sale.

 We have lots of good ideas for fairy and princess parties.  If you have any questions give us a call.  801-805-6667!

Marabou Feather Boas

Marabou Feather Boas

We love to use the feather boas around here.  Our marabou feather boas weigh 15 grams.  They have been cleaned, dried and then dyed.  They are $13.50 a dozen or $2 each as of this writing.

Marabou feather boas are a favorite among crafters.  The reason for this is because if you cut the rope that the feathers are attached to, then they don’t come off (atleast not very many), because the cord doesn’t typically unwind.  Marabou boas are used a lot to make marabou clips, hair clips, feather headbands, wreaths, trimming on clothing, used on scrapbook pages and to make homemade cards.  The uses of marabou boas are just about endless.

Also, once you cut the boa, just wrap it around your hand and put it back into the poly bag it came in.  That way, you can keep what you don’t use in your crafting area and you won’t get feathers everywhere.  If the tape on the poly bag isn’t very sticky, just stick a piece of tape over it to keep it sealed.  This helps us reduce, reuse and recycle.

Marabou Feather BoasWe carry red marabou boas, pink marabou boas, orange marabou boas, yellow marabou boas, lime green marabou boas, royal blue marabou boas, lavender marabou boas, purple marabou boas, brown marabou boas, black marabou boas and white marabou boas.

Of course these boas can also be worn around your neck for a night out on the town, or when your daughter wants to play dress up.  If dress up is your game, then these would be great.  They typically don’t shed feathers as badly as the chandelle ones do.

 

Our marabou feather boas are always priced right and better than other ‘sale’ prices on other websites.  That is because they are always discount, cheap and wholesale pricing!  There seems to be some confusion on how to spell marabou boas.  It is Marabou.  Although if you see it spelled maribou, maribo, maraboo or marabou it is the same thing!

We are the manufacturer, distributor and we use factories in China.  OEM products for you.  Great for carnivals, festivals, fundraisers, booster clubs and more.  Use them for your school colors at football and basketball games!

Let us know how you use your marabou feather boas.  Have a great day!
