How to Make a No-Sew Fairy Skirt


Have a little girl who loves to play dress up?  Here’s an easy way to add to her dress-up wardrobe and it’s a lot cheaper than buying some costumes from a store.  All you need is a few supplies and a little bit of time to make this no-sew fairy skirt.  You can even use this come Halloween time to save even more money.  Who doesn’t love little fairies?

  • 3 or 4 yards of tulle
  • elastic band
  • scissors
  • sequins (optional)
Game Plan:

1.  Purchase your tulle all in one color or multiple colors.  You may want to buy some with shimmer or sparkles in it for an authentic fairy look!

2. Use a skinny, elastic headband to make the waistband of the skirt.

I just used one I had on hand.

3.  Cut tulle into 3-4″ wide strips.  Length is determined by how long you want it and double it because it will drape on both sides of the elastic headband.

4. Place a strip over the elastic headband so it is halved.  Knot the tulle tightly around the headband so there are two free-floating pieces of tulle for the no sew fairy skirt.  Repeat this process with all strips of tulle.

I have to admit this seemed to take a looong time to make.  I would much rather use a sewing machine to make a fairy/ballerina skirt.
