Tutus and cupcakes, can there be anything gosh darn more cute.
A while back I styled, D.I.Y’d, and photographed this photo shoot with Sugar Cat Studio. I had just learned how to make a homemade tutu and decided that I could shrink the design and make a cupcake size tutu for a little girl’s themed party.
It was such a fun day with the sweetest little girls, playing at the park, eating cupcakes and giggling.
I thought I would share with you how to make a tutu for your cupcake:
Start buy cutting your ribbon. You will need the length of each ribbon to go around the width of a cupcake. Decide on how many cupcake tutus you will be making and cut the appropriate amount of ribbons. Next, cut strips of tulle. You will want 1 inch width by about 2-3 inches long (depending, on your desired tutu fluffiness) Cut a large pile of strips. Then begin securing them onto your ribbon. Create a loop with one strip of tulle, pull the opposite ends through the loop and between the ribbon. Do not pull too tight, the less tight the knot the less strips you will need. Continue doing this till you have gone the entire length of each ribbon. Secure with non-toxic glue or hot glue to each cupcake wrapper and allow to dry overnight (at least 6 hours).
*If you are making this tutu for yourself or child, you can just eat the cupcake and make a larger size tutu. Follow instructions and cut a piece of ribbon large enough for your waist with some room to tie a bow.
Ooo Laa Laa…
