Now that Halloween is over, I thought I’d try my hand at refashioning some of the old costumes I’ve accumulated over the years into accessories that I’ll actually wear now. My first project? Turning the sheer tulle of an old 1980s dance recital tutu into a pretty rosette.
1. Push a needle through a scrap piece of foam core to create a base for you to string the petals of the rosette onto.
2. Cut out teardrop shaped petals of the tulle.
3. Layer the petals onto the foam core base one by one, making sure to pass the needle through the tapered side of each piece.
4. When you feel your rosette is “full” enough, secure it with a needle and thread and carefully remove it from the foam core base.
5. Et voila!
