How to make a No-Sew Tutu

how to make a tutu

do you have a little girl that loves to dress up? I sure do, and we have a huge box of dress up clothes, most of them made by me! It’s so much cheaper (and more fun!) to make your own stuff! My little girl loves it because she can pick out exactly what she wants as far as colors and fabrics go! This Tutu took me about an hour to make, and there is no sewing, so anyone can do it!

Here is what you will need to make a Tutu:

  • 1 yard of tulle in whatever colors you wish!
  • scissors
  • a stretchy headband! (make sure it fits comfortably, but snuggly around your childs waist)

Here is how to make a Tutu:

Step 1: Roll your yard of tulle up longways and cut into 1 inch sections. Do this for each color.

Step 2:  Separate all of your tulle into strips.

Step 3: This step you will do over and over all the way around the headband. You will start with 1 strip of tulle and match the ends together, place the open end of the loop under the headband, and pull the other side through the loop. Make sure you pull tightly so it will not unravel.

Step 4: Using the method above, go around the whole headband with your tulle. I used 3 different colors, and I used 2 strands of tulle for each color. If you are using only 1 color, you don’t have to worry about this step. If you are using 2 or more colors I recommend using at least 2 strands of each color or more, depending on how many blocks of colors you want.

Step 5: Once you are done looping all of your tulle pieces, hang your tutu up, and use your fingers to “comb” the tutu and make sure their are no knots. You can then see if any areas are longer than others, and trim accordingly.

Thats it! 5 simple steps to make a super cute Tutu that your little one is sure to love! This Tutu took me about an hour to make, but it was relaxing and fun, I just caught up on some Tv while making it, haha. Ever since I finished it, my little girl has been dancing around in it, and I bet it’s going to take some bribery to get her to take it off at bed time!

Here is the finished Tutu on my model (aka:my awesome daughter):

She thinks her little faces she makes are just adorable (and I guess they kind of are…lol) I hope you enjoyed learning How to make a Tutu! I know I loved making it!
