Adorable DIY No-Sew Tutu

One of the easiest (and cutest) things you can make yourself are tutus! They really are super simple and are great for photos, birthdays, holidays, playing dress up—any day really!  

– Tulle (either on spools, or by the yard) in your desired color – 7/8″ ribbon in your desired color – Scissors (or rotary cutter and mat) – Measuring tape


Step 1:

Measure the child’s waist, as well as from the waist down to the point where you’d like your tutu to fall.

Step 2:

Cut your strips of tulle. If you buy tulle on spools it’s much easier because it’s already cut to a width of about six inches, which is perfect for tutu making.

Step 3:

Cut your ribbon. Add 48 inches to your waist measurement and cut the ribbon this length. This will ensure nice, long ends to tie a pretty bow with

Step 4:

Start knotting on your tulle! I tie my ribbon around my leg so it’s easier to knot the tulle. Since I make super fluffy tutus, I use three strips of tulle for each knot

Step 5:

You’re done! You can trim up the bottom if you’d like, but I like the not-so-perfect look of it when it’s finished so I don’t do any trimming.
