DIY Alice in Wonderland Tutu Tutorial

Remember a few weeks back when I showed you the photos from A’s 8 Month Photo Shoot? I actually made that sweet little DIY Alice and Wonderland Tutu for my sweet little Alice. It was actually super simple to make and looked adorable.

For this tutorial you will need one to two rolls of blue tulle (depending on the size of your baby or toddler), one roll of white tulle, blue stretchy baby headbands (for a larger child you’ll probably need a blue ribbon and end up tying it or sewing it together), a piece of cardboard (I cut up an old box we had laying around) and scissors.

I used this tutorial from The Latina Next Door to make the tutu and used the size chart from this tutorial over at The Pinning Mama.

  1. The first thing I did was take a piece of cardboard and cut it so that the with is wider than your tulle and the length is an inch longer than your desired length for the tutu. Take your tulle and wrap it around the length of your cardboard several times. The more you wrap it, the more strips of tulle you’ll have (bigger kid = more tulle).This super easy, no-sew DIY Alice in Wonderland Tutu is so cute!

  2. Once you’ve wrapped it as many times as desired, cut along the side you started wrapping on. This will leave you with the strips to make your tutu.This super easy, no-sew DIY Alice in Wonderland Tutu is so cute!

  3. Take your headband and go to the first hole on the edge. Pull your strip through forming a loop.This super easy, no-sew DIY Alice in Wonderland Tutu is so cute!

  5. Repeat this all around the headband adding in the white tulle for the portion that represents the apron. I added a second row of strips as well to give it a more full skirt.This super easy, no-sew DIY Alice in Wonderland Tutu is so cute!

Overall it was a pretty simple project that I was able to do in front of the TV- it came together in less than an hour (and I went at a leisurely pace). I’m super happy with the results and A seemed to enjoy wearing it.For bigger kids, I would probably swap out the head band for a ribbon that I could tie or you could even sew an elastic band into. But we all know that I fail at sewing. As you can see, A was loving get tutu:

    Absolutely gorgeous! She is too cute and that mirror is to die for! I hope it’s warming up and the snow is melting up in good old Rochester.

      Thank you so much- She was having a lot of fun during that session! The mirror belongs to the photographer, I believe it’s actually part of her home’s decor, not just a prop (for goodreason, I love it too!).

      It’s finally beginning to warm up there. I hope it’s warming up on your side of our state as well 🙂

    That baby is a darling and the photographs to die for. Perfect model, perfect shots. 🙂

    The cardboard trick is for the win. I bookmark this to make it for my daughter.
