If you’re even more like me, you also don’t want to spend $20-$50 on a costume your kid will wear once, only to match at least 30 of the other kids roaming the neighborhood on Halloween night. It will literally hurt your mommy ego – a symptom of what I call creative crafter’s syndrome. Nothing looks as good as when you do it yourself.
In case you haven’t noticed, the easiest way to complete or start a costume is to slap a tutu on it.
The best part – tutu’s are super cheap and easy to make. I could do a tutorial, but there are already so many out there that are great.
Here are some of the best Tu-tutorials I’ve found on the web.
This tutorial from alittleloveliness.blogspot.com is so super easy – no sewing skills needed. Of course, it takes a little more time and patience than you would need with a sewing machine but if you don’t have sewing skills this is the perfect TutuTorial for you. This is how I made my first tutu for my baby girl (pictured at the top of this post). Definitely check it out.
This TutuTorial, from 365daysofcrafts.com, is really similar to the one above only it’s fluffier, fuller, and it starts with a headband! It also takes just a little longer, but it makes layering different colors a whole lot easier! AND IT’S SOOOOO FLUFFY! #despicablemereference.
This TutuTorial, from theribbonretreat.com/blog, is a mix between the sew and the no sew. The ribbon trim just makes it a little more fancy and requires some basic sewing skills.
This TutuTorial from cookcleancraft.com is quick, easy, and a little more fancy than the no sew – probably because of the hem and the use of organza instead of tulle. If you know how to sew, this TutuTorial is the way to go!
This TutuTorial is from thehappyhousewife.com/ These tutus are adorable and fun! I used this as inspiration for my daughters carnival themed birthday tutu earlier this year, and everyone loved it. I mixed fabric with tulle, but you can incorporate whatever best fits your vision.
If you are a bit more visual (like I am), this TutuTorial from SoCraftastic is definitely easy to follow. Sarah explains it all very well, and shows you a few different techniques to make a no sew tutu. She is so adorable and crafty, subscribe to her YouTube channel for more crafts and DIY Projects.
Let’s face it. Sometimes, we just don’t have the time to make a tutu. Sometimes, we’re either creatively challenged or simply creatively exhausted. That’s what makes this TutuTorial so easy. You don’t have to make it. You just order it from Le Tutu Shoppe, an adorable Etsy shop for pretty fluffy things. And it’s under $20. And the selection is adorable. And this store has matching headbands. And even better, you can completely customize it. It’s up to you. Click. Order. Ship. Wear. Boom. #nailedit.
