Little Wood Sprite
To make your own, you need 2 yards each of four different colors of nylon tulle in complimentary colors. Keeping the tulle folded in half lengthwise, cut it widthwise in to 3 inch strips. Working with one color at a time (the darkest first) knot the strips around the headband, which will now be the waistband of your skirt. Knot by pulling the cut ends through the folded ends and pulling tight around the elastic. When all four layers of tulle have been added, trim your garland into desired lengths and knot on to the front of the skirt using either tulle or a coordinating ribbon. If desired, take any leftover garland and make a matching headband (or necklace, or waistband!) by simply tying either ribbon or a few strips of tulle to the ends. Let your little fairy try it on and dance around like the princess that she is. Voila!
