Want to add a little pizazz to your Halloween costume this year? Try making a tutu! They’re easier than you’d think, and they’re pretty awesome to wear – you feel like a cross between a fairy princess and a feather duster. Who doesn’t want that? Here’s a tutorial (or a “tutu-rial” – ha!) for getting your inner ballerina on.
What you need:
- Tulle, cut into 6 inch wide strips, with a length a little bit more than twice the length you want your tutu to be (you can buy rolls of ~6 inch wide tulle from craft and fabric shops or Amazon if you want to avoid most of the cutting). The amount of tulle you’ll need depends on how fluffy you want your tutu to be. I used around 40 strips for my medium-volume tutu.
- Elastic or ribbon to use as your waist band (needs 6 inches of excess)
- Safety pin
