No-Sew Scrap Skirt Tutorial

Yay! Finally it is time to bust out the Halloween Tricks and Treats!
October is my favorite month … the weather begins to cool, candy everywhere you turn, my birthday, dressing up in costumes and Halloween of course!I’ve been wanting to make a super cute scrappy skirt for my daughter since seeing them on Pinterest.  I have also been loving all of the candycorn colored Halloween  projects.  So, I decided to combine these two projects and make aCandyCorn Halloween Fairy Scrappy Skirt!

Making this skirt isn’t Tricky at all.  It is a quick, simple and inexpensive project.
All you need is an elastic waistband, fabric and scissors.

I have absolutely Zero sewing skills.  So, I found stretchy pants that had questionable stains on the backside and just cut the elastic waistband off.  Be sure not to cut too close to the seam that way the fabric will remain on the elastic band.  Also, make sure the waistband loosley fits your kiddo because the extra fabric will make for a tighter fit.  Keep the unused fabric for another project or to use as rags.

Next comes the fun part.  Pick out the fabric you want to use or raid your stash for scraps.  I bought a half yard in each color and chose organza and satin fabrics.  You could use cotton, tulle or any other fabric that you like.Cut the fabric into strips.  Length and width are dependent on your personal preference.  For the length, decide how long you want your skirt to hang and
double that length when cutting.

Continue to fasten your fabric strips until the skirt is full and poofy.  I decided to cut the fabric ends at an angle so that it would look pointy, but that is optional.  You can also add whatever extras you want: lace, ribbon, yarn or buttons.  I tied some of the extra fabric onto an elastic hair band for a matching hair accessory.WhamOBlammo you are done!
