No sew Crib Bedskirt (Tutu style)!

Do you remember awhile back when I made my Pottery Barn inspired bedskirt?
Well if you don't then you can go and check it out HERE, or you can just read the rest of this post because they are pretty much the same.

I made the first Pottery Barn Inspired Bedskirt for my 2 year old's bed, and since then I have received numerous emails about how to actually make the skirt. I started to write each person a detailed, step by step on the process, but now I have decided to just make a post about it!
The one I am making today is for my 1 year old's crib!
This is so inexpensive because you can buy tulle for $1 a yard at Hobby Lobby and then is all you need is ribbon, rope, or even a couple old shoe strings!
Depending on the size of bed you are doing and the amount of fullness that you want will make the difference of how much tulle you will need!
For my 2 year old's bed that was a queen, I used about 9 or 10 yards for each side. The one that I am doing today, for a crib, I used about 5 or 6 yards.
So let's start!

First, get your tulle, fold and cut it in fourths or in halves if you have a longer length from your bed to your floor.
The roll up those little sections like a hot dog and cut about every 3 inches. It doesn't have to be perfect  so just estimate the size you want and go for it!
They should look somewhat like these when you are done with a couple of rolls!
Also, my suggestion would be to do 1 yard increments at a time, otherwise you will try and cut and roll the tulle and it will all be uneven.

Then take your cut rolls and one at a time, unroll them, and tie them on your ribbon like this picture.
To make it easier I tap my ribbon to the desk top, or whatever surface is near you at the time. Then you can pull on it to tighten them so it makes it way faster!
Before you tie. (above)
After you tie (below)
Then keep going until you have done the length of the bed. I did mine in sections to make it easier. The I hot glued it on the wood thingy (I have no idea what it's called?) that the crib mattress goes on. I figure no one ever sees it except for me, so if I ever use this crib for another boy then i will just rip off the tutu as best as I can!
Another side note...if your girls are similar to mine, they won't at first understand that it is a tutu for the bed, leading them to of course try and rip it off the bed so they can wear it! Just make sure to have a little talk, or just apply extra strength velcro or glue and you'll be set!
 That's it! Simple right? My girl's love them! They are obessed with tutus though, so maybe we are just crazy!

If you have any questions just let me know! I would love to answer them!
Hope you enjoy it as much as my girls have!!
Have a great weekend!

I am linking to all of these great parties!
