The perfect peacock party frock

peacock tutu_1
This peacock tutu is so amazing you might just want to make one for yourself.

You’ll need:
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)                          
Glue gun

  • 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.
