Add a flower or brooch to the top of the dress.
You can embellish the top of the dress by attaching flowers or brooches to where the straps join the elastic. Here are some ideas:
- If you made a halter top dress, glue a silk flower or brooch onto the ribbon loop, right where it meets the elastic.
- If you made a dress with shoulder straps, glue silk flowers or bows onto the front of each strap.
Embellish the shoulder straps. You can glue little silk roses onto the shoulder strap ribbon. Put a drop of glue onto the back of a silk rose and press it against the ribbon. Glue another flower 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) away from the first one. Keep doing this until you have created a line of silk roses down the center of the ribbon.
Decorate the bodice of the dress. The bodice of the dress is the space between the waistband and the top of the dress. You can attach silk or ribbon flowers to the pieces of tulle using fabric glue or hot glue. You can also attach rhinestones, gemstones, and even craft butterflies!
Add some flowers to the waistband. You can transform a tutu dress into a fairy dress by gluing silk or ribbon flowers along the waistband. Do not take the dress off the dress form just yet. Place a drop of fabric glue or hot glue onto the back of a silk or ribbon flower, and press it against the waistband. Hold the flower in place for a few seconds before adding another flower. You can also use silk leaves as well.
Embellish the waistband with glitter. If you used a plain ribbon for the waistband, you can draw swirls and squiggles on it using glittery or pearlescent puff paint.
Make a dress fit for a princess with rhinestones. Purchase some rhinestones and glue them to the waistband of the dress using fabric glue or hot glue. You can also outline each rhinestone with glittery puff paint for extra sparkle.
Decorate the skirt of the dress. Glue some silk or ribbon flowers to several strands of tulle on the skirt of the dress. You can also glue craft butterflies and appliqués. If the dress is for a little witch instead, use some plastic spiders instead for a scary effect.
Add a ruffle effect. To make the tutu dress look ruffled, take a contrasting color of tulle and cut it into 5-inch (12.70-centimeter) wide strips. This will leave you with 5 by 6 inch (12.70 by 15.24 centimeter) rectangles. Take a rectangle it turn it horizontally, so that the short ends are facing left and right, and the long ends are facing the floor an ceiling. Hold it against one of the strips of tulle from the dress. Position it so that it is about 2 ½ inches (6.35 centimeters) from the bottom, and tie a knot.
Create a petal effect. You can make the dress look like it is made from flower petals by knotting the bottom end of each strand of tulle. Try to get the knot as close to the end as possible, and tie it tightly. Use a pair of scissors to snip any extra tulle off, and try to cut as close to the bottom of the knot as possible.
Make a tattered skirt. You can cut the strips of tulle that make up the skirt of the dress into different lengths, creating a tattered effect. This is perfect for a little pirate or witch!
Add a cone hat. If this dress is for a princess, you could make a cone hat to go with it. Simply roll a piece of poster board into a cone shape, and tape it shut. Decorate the cone hat with tulle, rhinestones, and glitter.
Consider making a fairy or princess wand.
Take a 12-inch (30.38-centimeter) dowel and wrap a pretty ribbon around it, making it look like a candy cane. Secure the ends of the ribbon to the dowel with some glue. Use hot glue or super glue to attach a rhinestone, bead, or button to the bottom of the wand. Cut several long pieces of ribbon and tie them to the top of the wand. Bend a pipe cleaner into a star or heart shape, and glue it to the top of the wand.
- You rhinestone dress pictures can also paint a heart or start-shaped piece of wood a pretty color, and glue it to the to of the wand instead of using a pipe cleaner.
- You can also use other items to top the wand, such as Christmas ornaments, silk flowers, and plastic figurines.
