When our daughter was in dance class, I loved having tutus just especially for each holiday.  It was a really fun way to show my little girl that I cared.  All the girls would ooh and aww over her fun tutus.  Now, you can have some fun, holiday themed skirts for ballet, dance, dress up, Halloween and more!

This Halloween skirt also comes in one for the 4th of July, and a zebra/hot pink style too.

Orange, black, white, spiders, cob webs, it just doesn’t get much more festive for dance class than that!  Don’t forget this would make a fun prop for a Halloween photo shoot or even a Halloween costume!

Tutorial: How to Make a Tutu

Tutorial: How to Make a Ribbon Tie Tulle Tutu

We’ve decided as mentioned in our earlier post that we need to teach people a little something about some of the craft products we carry. There are lots of really cute things you can make relatively easily and inexpensively on your own, and we’d love to share some ideas with you.

So, today I want to show you how to make a simple ribbon tie tutu. Learning how to make a tutu is really very easy.  There are other variations on this, you can even use elastic if you have it. I love this idea because you can use any colors you want, just as puffy as you like, and really personalize your own creations.

You will need:

Tutu Making Supplies

6″ X 25 Yd Rolls of Wholesale Tulle(I used 4 rolls–Purple, Lavender, Light Green, and Turquoise–that’s a new color! I didn’t end up using the white pictured.) The amount you need will depend on the size of girl and length of tutu you are making. This was for a 7 year old girl, whose waist was about 24″, and the length is approx. 13”.  You can make just a tutu skirt with a shorter length or a tutu dress with a bit of a longer length.  Just measure against the person you wish to make this for.

Grosgrain Ribbon (I used 7/8″ Solid Purple Grosgrain)

Scissors

Scrap Piece of Cardboard

Directions:

Cut a piece of cardboard about the length that you would like your skirt to be, adding an extra inch for tying and fluff factor.

Wrap your tulle around the cardboard lengthwise. I just used the whole roll, so I’m not really sure how many times. But you can err on the side of caution and just do a few passes of each color at once.

Cut the tulle on one side of the cardboard. This will give you pieces twice the length of your skirt. This is good. Don’t panic. They are supposed to be that long.

Once all of your tulle is cut, you can cut your ribbon.  Use the waist of the girl you are making the tutu for as a measure. Wrap the ribbon around the waist, then add an extra couple of feet so you’ll have what you need plus enough for tying a nice bow at the end.

Measure about about a foot in (or more if you like) to your ribbon and tie a knot. This is to keep the tool from sliding off of your ribbon. This is the start of the waist on your skirt.

7/8" Grosgrain RibbonTake two pieces of tool and fold them in half creating a loop. Put the loop in back of the ribbon as pictured.

How To Tie a TutuNow take the ends of your tulle up over the ribbon and through the loop. Pull tight. The tighter you pull these knots and push them together, the fuller your skirt will be. If you don’t want it too full, pull your knots a bit looser, but tight enough to stay put.

Knotting a TutuContinue to tie knots alternating colors as you wish. I just did a four color alternating pattern, but you can do it however you like.

Tying a TutuWhen you think you have enough tulle tied on your skirt, hold it up to your recipient’s waist and make sure you are done. Then tie another knot in that end of the ribbon to hold the tulle in place.

Now you can just tie a pretty bow in the back, and you are set! Voila, easy peasy inexpensive custom made one of a kind tutu!

I love the colors of this tutu.  I think it turned out so darling, fun and Spring-y! I simply love this fluffy tutu. Making tutus for your boutique would  be much easier than you think.  If you just don’t have time to make tutus, we also carry wholesale tutus that are only $2.50 each!

 

Have fun creating!  Let us know what you think!
