DIY Grass Skirt and Drink Hula Skirt

It has been a while since my last post! My computer died and my hard drive crashed! Yikes! I have an external hard drive but there were files I haven't backed up specially recent pictures I took and deleted from the camera. Luckily, the technician was able to retrieve my files but I lost my bookmarks! I was not able to use the computer for 5 days and I was so bored! I just busied myself watching movies at night with my nieces. Anyway, I'm back and will blog hop as soon as I can.

I just finished making this Hula Skirt for Ykaie's upcoming Luau birthday party! She's gonna be 4 yrs old on the 19th of November and we'll celebrate her birthday at the beach in Puerto Galera. It will just be a small party.


I did the same procedure when I made Ykaie's tutu 2 years ago. It is the quickest way to make a Hawaiian grass skirt. I only spent Php130 for the materials.








I cut several lengths of raffia straw ( knee length)



I just kept tying and adding pieces of raffia straw onto the elastic band using Cow hitch knot.



measure around waist and sew the 2 ends together.





Finished product- embellished with flowers using hot glue




I also made mini grass skirts and bra tops



Drink Hula skirts



Here's Ykaie's Beach Luau birthday party.

girls skirts said...

Cut strips of newspaper or paper grocery bags and use them in place of raffia for an even more inexpensive skirt, or for a spontaneous play skirt for a little girl.They're easy to make, even if you don't have any sewing skills, and they look great when you're ready to get out and shake your grass.

May I ask where you got the raffia straw fabric from?
