Why make a boring bedskirt when you can make the bed it’s very own tutu :)
I saw something similar to this somewhere in blogland, so if it was you, let me know so you can get a proper shout-out. UPDATE: I saw it on OneTwoTwo&Co. I’m in a “use-your-stash” competition where the challenge is to use lots of yardage each week – I thought this was a good project (but I only used 7 yards and someone else in the competition used 25 yards – wow!)
My girls had fun helping me with it. And a sign that blogging affects everything I do – my kindergartener said “hey, we should take picture of how to do this so we can show everyone” – right you are!
Here’s a tutorial on how to make a bed tutu bedskirt:
First cut a gazillion strips of tulle – we used plain and sparkle. Fold a strip in half and poke the folded end down and open up the “loop”:
Take the other end and put it through the loop (side note – do you like that face she has drawn on her hand so she can make it into a person – classic!)
Pull it through:
And pull down to tighten:
After they were all tied on, I went back and trimmed them to length, just above the floor. You can see the ones on the right side have been trimmed and the ones on the left side are long.
And here’s a quick before and after – amazing how adding a bedskirt miraculously cleans up the whole room:
