Making the World Cuter: Friendly Friday-The Nature of Grace

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Friendly Friday-The Nature of Grace

It's moving day today! Yikes! While I am busy sweating and hauling boxes on and off the truck today, I have a fun little treat for you from a new blogger-go on over and give her some bloggy love!
Wish me luck!
Guest Tutorial from Michelle at The Nature of Grace

Hand-print Ballet Tutu on Canvas (great for decorating a little girl's room or even a ballet party favor project!)
Materials: canvas, scissors, paint, pink paper, regular white paper, glue, ribbon or rhinestones or other embellishments.

How To:
1. Paint a hanger on your canvas (this step is optional).

2. Fold a white piece of paper in half (hot dog style) and draw half of leotard shape (length-wise). Cut this out, open it up and you should have a symmetrical leotard shape.

3. Trace that shape onto your pink paper and cut it out.

4. Glue the leotard shape to the hanger you painted and let it dry OR if you skipped the first step, just glue the leotard to your canvas making certain you leave enough room at the bottom for hand prints to form the tutu.

5. Paint your daughter's hands and place them on the canvas around the leotard to create a full tutu effect. On ours, we used four hand prints in a light pink first, then after those had dried, we made two more hand prints on top of the light pink hand prints in a darker pink shade (see finished project below). Allow these to dry. BTW: if you are using a pre-stretched canvas, you may want to place a book under the area of canvas where your child will be placing her hand prints to avoid denting or pushing through the canvas.

6. Glue a section of pink ribbon and a bow around the waist of your "tutu". Make and glue a smaller bow to the top of your leotard or the hanger (see finished project photograph). You might also want to add other embellishments of your own to the leotard and tutu (rhinestones, real tulle, etc.).

7. Admire and display your cutie's hand prints! :)

Hi! I'm Michelle and I am simply a mom (LOL – who else thinks the words “simply” and “mom” are polar opposites) blessed to live in a blogging era when I can share online with others some of my creativity, fun with the kiddos, homeschooling tips, and a hobby turning business venture. I'd love to have you along for the journey! :)

Thanks Michelle! It turned out really cute, I know my little dancer would love it!
