Tutu Table Skirt (Sugar & Spice Baby Shower) {Thoughtful Thursday}

I told you last week I got to be apart of an awesome baby shower! The theme was "Sugar & Spice". We used hot pink and orange everywhere. It was so fun!!! I wanted to tell you about the fun tutu table skirt I got to make. I found the idea HERE on Pinterest. I wanted to show you how easy it was!

Supplies: {for a 12' round table}

  • 6 yards of white tulle
  • 3 yards of both orange and pink tulle
  • 12 feet of white ribbon
  • table-cloth hooks
  • lighter
  • scissors
  • some sort of measuring tool

Directions:

  1. measure & cut white tulle into 2 inch strips
  2. measure, cut {quickly burn the end of the ribbon to prevent reveling}, & string up ribbon {easiest way I found to know tulle on}
  3. loosely knot each strip evenly onto the ribbon {this takes a crazy amount of time}
  4. space white tulle evenly across the entire ribbon
  5. go through and group a few strips so there is even spaces available along the ribbon
  6. cut the orange and pink tulle in 2 inch strips
  7. loosely knot colored tulle evenly across the ribbon placing several strips together to make the color bolder
  8. once all the strips are on the ribbon, move them around to even them out
  9. when decorating for the shower {or whatever event you'd like to use the tutu for}, stretch the tutu around the table, using the table-cloth clips, hook the tutu evenly to the table
  10. fluff, rearrange, cutesy up the skirt prior to the shindig {we also layered an orange-colored plastic table clothe under

  1. Hello. . . I want to make this for my baby shower where do I get table clips from and how do I connect the tutu when its finished?

    • FUN! I found the table clips in the party section {I think at Wal-Mart}. I believe they are normally used for those plastic table clothes and mainly outdoors so it doesn’t blow away. I would suggest getting lots of them. I think I only used one pack and with there being lots of space between them, it tended to sag more than I would have liked. With more clips I think it would keep it straighter.
      Come back and let us know how it turns out! :D What color skirt are you making?
