DIY Tutorial - Tutu & Fairy Wings

I love making and creating especially for parties.  It's amazing what you can create with the simplest of things, even glue, string & white paint can make amazing globe lanterns, but I'm not sharing that tutorial today!   I thought we would stay in our toadstool patch for todays DIY post and make some fairy wings and a tutu.  Even Woodland Fairies need pretty tutu's and wings and these two tutorials are easy to follow so you will be able to create a costume in an afternoon.  I also think older children would be able to make these with a little help, so a perfect rainy day project.

There are some fabulous tutorials available on the internet I have chosen todays as they are easy to follow, with lots of photos showing you each step.

This tutu can be made to any size.  I would advise making longer 'petals' for a taller child.

These wings are for a smaller child, however you can easily make them bigger by adjusting the wire to size.

So have fun creating and be sure to share your makes with us!

Take care
