Elf on the Shelf Idea- Tutu. You see my daughter saw an elf on the shelf with a tutu which lead I want one. I looked at the price and decided she was not getting one. I mean why would I spend $5 when I can spend less than $1. I decided I could make an elf tutu. I do not even sew but I thought it would be more fun to make one and it only took a couple of minutes. I let my daughter pick out the elf tutu colors and we headed out to the craft store.
You will need:
- 1/4 yard of tulle in whatever colors you wish! $.56
- ribbon it was $.33 a spool
Measure the ribbon my encircling the elf’s waist.
Then cut the ribbon so you have enough to tie it once you create the tutu
Cut the tulle in 6 inch strips
Then you will fold it over and knot it
You will continue to do so until you have covered the ribbon.
I think I am going to make a matching tutu for my little girl you can do that as well by following our how to make a tutu post. I may even make one for myself.. ha ha in our how to make a tutu for adults post we tell you how.
