DIY Flower Girl Tutu

When thinking about my nieces and what they would wear on our wedding day I knew I wanted it to be fun. They are little girls after all and what do little girls like to do – dress up! I decided on puffy flower girl tutus and thought this would make a fun DIY wedding project. I immediately checked YouTube and found helpful video tutorials offering tips and a visual guide.

Here is what I used and instructions to make a no sew flower girl tulle skirt:

1. Spool of Satin Ribbon for the waistband. (Approx: $3-$5)
Measured 18″, tied a knot. (this is to tie in a bow at the end)
Measured 20″, tied a knot. (this is to wrap around the waist)
Measured 18″, cut the ribbon. (this is to tie in a box at the end)

2. Pick your tulle colors. (On Sale for $1 a yard)
Mocha Tulle (9 yrds)
Blush Pink Tulle (3 yrds)

3. Razor Cutter (Purchased with a coupon for $8)
Easiest way to cut even strips of tulle.

4. Sparkle Embellishments (Purchased on sale for $3)
A few glued throughout the skirt for a little sparkle.

5. Super Glue (Had some at home – $0)

You simply cut the stripes to your desired length and tie to the ribbon. Continue to push pieces together as you move along the ribbon. The more you fit on the ribbon the thicker the skirt. For a step by step tutorial visit YouTube.

I’ve decided I will pair the skirt with an ivory leotard, sparkly ballet flats and a brooch barrette for their hair. After the wedding the girls can play dress up in the skirts. What do you think?
