Patriotic Tutu Tutorial

We are getting ready for the 4th of July at our house! It is no small holiday around here... We have been getting Mad's outfit ready to wear in the parade. We made this cute tulle tutu. Sorry I didn't take pics as I went but it's pretty easy to figure out.
Step 1- First cut a piece of non-roll elastic the width of your little ones waste. Then put around a book or binder for stability.

Step 2- Cut out strips of tulle 6 inches wide and double the length that you want the tutu to be Step 3- Tie and double knot tulle strips to elastic band until satisfied with fullness.

It also looks really cute if you add in ribbons! Just tie them on as well. I still may do this but am currently short on my patriotic colored ribbons. Enjoy!!!
