Are you ready to complete your fairy outfit? We have already made our fairy crowns, so let’s get started on our skirt.
- 3/8″ ribbon
- Crochet headband, fold over elastic, or elastic
1. Grab your tulle and scissors. Determine how long you would like for the skirt to be and double that number to get your tulle strip length. I wanted my skirt to be 18″ long, so my tulle strips were 1 yard(or 36″) long. Cut your tulle into strips. The amount of strips you cut will determine the “fluffiness” of your skirt. You will probably need at least 30 strips of tulle.
2. I will be using a crochet headband for my skirt waistband, but you may use fold over elastic or “regular” elastic if a crochet headband is too small for your fairy’s waist. I will be using the same steps as our No Sew Tutu to make my fairy skirt(click on the link to view our instructional video). Fold one strip of tulle in half and thread the loop through the crochet headband.
3. Pull the tails through the loop to create a knot.
4. Continue this process until the waistband is covered in tulle. I only did one row of tulle on the crochet headband, but feel free to do multiple rows for a fuller skirt.
5. You could be finished at this point, but I wanted to add a little more pizazz to my fairy skirt. I cut six 1 yard pieces of purple ribbon(I used Purple and Lavender RABOM Iridescence) and tied it in different spots around the skirt.
Your fairy skirt is complete, so all that’s left is a pretty wand to help spread magic and cheer to all. There are a couple different styles of wands that you can make. Check out these tutorials for some inspiration:

Or you can add a tulle puff to the top like our Ballerina Wand.
What a great addition to the dress-up box, right? Now your fairy is ready to go enchant the world with her new outfit
