How-To DIY Post with Pictures!

My running partner asked me to make her a tutu for a holiday-themed 5k she is running next month. I finished this in one evening and was pretty pleased with how it turned out, so I figured I’d share with you how I did it.  My friend bought the supplies and I just “built” it from there. I used:

  • flat 1 inch thick red knit elastic
  • 1 yard each, red and green tulle
  • 4 colors glitter ribbon

I cut the tulle into strips, varying between 1.5″ and 2″. I cut the elastic and tied it together to create the “waistband” of the tutu. I then attached everything to the elastic waistband. See the pictures for more info!

I’m super excited for my friend to wear this for her 5k! This would be a great gift for little girls in your family or for runners looking for a festive and fun accessory!

    • Thanks Jen! I’m especially proud because the friend I made this for was really down and I was feeling blah, but doing this for her lifted both our spirits. Therapy through crafts, I guess.
