How to make an Easter tutu

Do you have an Easter dress for your little princess yet?  Can't find what you're looking for? Why not make her an Easter tutu?!

Awhile back I posted a tutu-tutorial and showed you how to make a tutu.  You can check out the tute here. Also, I have a FABULOUS updated that a lovely reader suggested.  This will make it even EASIER to make a tutu! First, find something that has twice the circumference as your desired length.  It can be a book, a box, a picture frame, whatever you can find.  For my 10" tutu, I use a printer paper box because it is exactly 20" around.  Next, I slide a small dowel rod (you could also use a large wooden spoon, etc.) through the tulle, and I start wrapping the tulle around the box.  I try not to wrap more than 30 times before I cut, because, since I sell my tutus, I like my edges to be very crisp.  However, for your own personal use, you can wrap it as many times as your scissors can cut through--probably about 50.  Once you have wrapped the desired amount of times, make one cut!  Not 100, just one!  Woo-hoo!!  The end result will be a very nice, neat stack of tulle strips!  So fantastic!  Thanks Brook! Here are a few pics of the process I just tried to explain, but I took them myself while trying to roll, cut, etc., so I hope you can understand them!  If not, just leave me a comment and I'll try harder! ;)

 

Here is my "Sugar and Spice" tutu.  I think this looks very spring-y.  What do you think?  

Maybe you would like to make your own Easter tutu!  If you do, I would LOVE to see it!  Have fun, everyone!
