This peacock tutu is so amazing you might just want to make one for yourself.
Tulle, tulle and more tulle (Blue, Teal, Green, Lime and Brown are good choices)
Felt in various colours (preferably choose colours close to that of your tule)
- Start by making your tulle tutu. Click here for instructions on how to create a no sew tutu. To get a more realistic tail effect, only tie you tulle strips to the back of the tutu waist band, with your strips shorter on the sides and longer in the middle.
- Now for the feathers. Cut your felt into various shapes and sizes that when stacked will mimic the ‘eye’ of a peacock’s feather (see images below). You can now stitch or glue your pieces together.
- Scatter and tack your feathers along a strip or more of ribbon.
- Simply tie the ribbon to the back of the tutu and voila! A peacock tutu!
You can find this and other rip roaring costume ideas when you board the train to crazy.
