Since we have both an existing ballerina and a ballerina in training in our house, you can bet that tutu’s are in high demand! Heck, they’re even fun just for dress up or grocery shopping! What, you wouldn’t let your kid wear a tutu to the grocery store? Come on now! They’re only little for such a short time! And also, there’s the whole picking and choosing your battles thing, soooo….
What if I told you that you could make your very own tutu for less than $3? Sound crazy? How about if I told you that it could be made out of these:
Yes. Those are stretchy head bands and shower scrubbies. Impossible you say? Well then prepare to be amazed!
Start by taking apart the scrubbie. It’s easy, I promise. Once you have it apart, cut it into 18 inch lengths. Here is where it gets super complicated and tricky. Are you ready?
Tie the 18 inch lengths to a headband. And that is it, folks. You just made a tutu for your precious little ballerina for less than $3 and in less than 20 minutes. Wanna do it again?
I color coordinated the head bands to the scrubbies, but you can live on the wild side if you like. It will pretty much be covered up. I used two scrubbies per tutu and they turned out plenty fluffy.
Two tutus! Super easy, and super popular in the fancy ballerina circles.
Doesn’t she look ready for some grocery shopping? Or dance class, whatever. Seriously though, these are super easy, super cheap, and you will look like Supermom (or SuperDad) when you whip one up for your little one.
