Tutus Two Ways
Put together a sponge tutu costume in a snap with this easy how-to from TV crafter Hosanna Houser, developed for our Dollar-Store Costume Challenge. If you have a bit more time, try the curled-ribbon variation.
- Large cylinder vase or canister
- Elastic headband
- Colorful mesh body sponges
Stretch elastic headband over a large cylinder vase or canister, which will act as the "dress form."
Pull a mesh sponge apart; cut into strips.
Fold a strip in half, making a loop. Place loop over waistband; thread ends through loop and pull through.
Repeat with more strips until tutu is full.
