Hi crafty ladies! I’m Steph from Crafting in the Rain and I’m so excited to be in this fun series!
Of course with my ballerina daughter I had to pick the “9 ladies dancing” for my theme. I wanted to make something fun for her to give to her ballet teacher. Here’s how I turned a regular soap dispenser into a cute ballerina.
A bottle of hand soap (I chose foaming to minimize soap drips and I liked the color)
Vinyl ballerina cut out
Start by measuring the soap pump and determining the right size for the ballerina. I cut mine 2.5 inches tall.
Stick the vinyl down on the soap bottle.
To make the tutu, cut a strip o tulle that’s long enough to wrap around the bottle at least 2 times, and 4 inches wide. Fold the tulle in half and hand stitch along the fold. Then pull the string to ruffle the tulle.
Starting on the back side of the pump use hot glue to attach the tutu. When you reach the back again, trim any excess and use a bit of glue to connect the ends.
And there you have it. A lovely lady dancing and a perfect gift for any dance teacher. Do you have any dancers in your life?
So thanks for having me here today, but I can’t leave without sharing a fun glitter project too. I made it after our Disneyland trip a couple of years ago.
