This is the easiest, cutest homemade tutu ever! I made one a few years ago for my little princess turning one. It made such a cute accent in all of the pictures we took that day. And it was quick to make! The only things I used were elastic and tulle (which cost a few dollars total). This tutorial explains the easy process very well.
For my daughter's 3rd birthday, I decided to add some ribbons to the tutu. It was a cute touch but more than doubled the cost of the tutu. So I'm not sure adding the ribbons was worth it. But I still love the simpleness and cuteness of this homemade tutu. It's a fun way for your little princess to stand out on her birthday or to turn any day into a special occasion.
