Wedding Tutu and Veil

I'm baaaaaaaack!

We had the BEST time in Disneyland!
Seriously, so much fun.  Why do I like it as much as my kids?
We already can't wait to go back!

So, I've got to get some posts going on this little blog of mine.
I decided I'm going to try and do at least one post a week.  If I want to do more, awesome.  If not, that's okay, too.  Just letting you know so you know what's going on over here at Loving Every Second!

On to our fun post today!
Last year, I decided to make my niece a wedding tutu for her birthday.  She was turning four and four-year-olds love to dress up!  Am I right?  I know I am 'cause I have a four-year-old :)

I used white tulle and tied it around an elastic band for the waist.  I'm sure you can google a tutorial if you don't already know how to make them.  
 I decided to add a little bit of glitz and tied silver ribbon on it, too.  Gives it a fun little touch, dontcha think?

What is a wedding tutu without a veil?
I had some white tulle left over and decided I could totally make a play veil.
I started with a french-clasp barrette.  That way the veil could clip right into the hair and stay in.  I tied some strips of tulle on it just like I did on the tutu.  You can tie as many as you want to make it as full as you want, just make sure you can close the clasp on the barrette.

I wanted to add a little bling, so I hot-glued some rhinestones on the barrette.  I wanted a little girly touch, too, so I also hot-glued some little white flowers I had.

I think they turned out SO CUTE!  I had my daughter try them on before we gave them to my niece and she loved them!

I also added some white gloves that I found at the dollar store for the gift - a wedding tutu, veil and gloves.  That girl is ready to get married!  Or at least pretend to get married, lots and lots of times :)

I had some white tulle on-hand, but I did end up buying a little more at the dollar store.  I had everything else on hand so this project cost me a dollar!  Yes!
