First off, I love rainbows. My roommate has a saying, "my favorite color is rainbow". I often challenge myself to pull off wild color combinations, and have delved into a new medium recently - the world of tulle!

This year for Halloween, I was a clown. To support my clown costume, I decided I needed an AMAZING RAINBOW TUTU! This is a departure from how I have made Tutus in the past, as there is no elastic in it, follow my Step-by-Step directions to make one of your own <3

Step 1: Materials

Nikki found these awesome rolls of tulle fabric that are 6"x25 yards! They were perfect for making Tutu strips. I used those, some facing, and hot-glue, and a hook/eye fastener as my materials. I also used some yarn stretched between to dress forms to drape my tulle piles on to - more on that later. 

The tools I used for this Tutu were: a pair of scissors, a glue-gun, and a sewing machine
<p>I love rainbows too and could you make something like that except more sparkly?</p>
<p>i love rainbows. they are so cool</p>
Is there an EL wire on shoes those look nice yo ! A close photo would be appreciated.
stay tuned for a different instructable about those boots ;-)
This looks awesome and very neatly done, but if you want to make one quickly you can just tie the tulle pieces on a strip of elastic. It won't look as neat as yours does but it works.
that is how i have made tu-tus in the past, but as soon as i had cut all the tulle, I knew I wanted to make this one a little more sturdy.
It's not cute when your fat
i just loved the style
I love your rainbow spirit!:)))))
Ohww, I just love love it! looks super cute :)
