LookC turned 6 this month and she had a ballerina themed party last Friday @ Akimbo Kids in Drummond, her mom runs the party business Quirky Queens.
Remember the post were I sewed 3 tutu skirts for 3 wire bodies. They were used as the centre decorations for the main table. I also made a ballerina wreath for the main food table. Here is a quick rundown on how I made it!
My handyman (husband of course) cut out a wooden circle out of plywood of 12” in diameter, with a circle in the middle, the width of the wooden section is 1½”, so the inner circle is 9”. Hope this makes sense!
I wrapped a 1” pink ribbon around the wooden circle, glue the ribbon to the wooden section at the beginning and at the end. Now cut up 2 kinds of pink tulle in to 3” width by about 12” length, one of the tulle’s was soft pink and glittery, the other was stiff and very pink. I must have cut about 80 – 100 strips of each of the tulles.
Layer the two on top of each other and tie it onto the circle using a loop knot. Pull tight, don’t pull the ends as you will tear the tulle. Pull the tulle tight at the base, making sure that the ends flare out to the outside of the circle.
Sew two little pink ribbon loops on to the back of each of the ballet shoes to hang from the top of the wreath. Pull through about a yard of 1” pink ribbon through each loop and secure it to the top of wreath, add more ribbons for a bow and to hang from.
LookC looked tutu cute!
Lots of happy crafting!
