Supplies used:

  • Umbrella
  • Striped stretch pants or tights
  • Pool noodle
  • Shoes
  • Six inches of tulle (lime green and purple used for this project)
  • Ribbon
  • Wire
  • Scissors
  • Fabric and stuffing for bloomers and decor for shoes (optional)

Step 1: Remove the umbrella handle and
slide the pants over the metal rod.




Step 2: Attach pants to wire frame. I used
heavy wire to thread through the fabric,
but you can use anything that will fasten it to the wire frame.


Step 3: Cut the pool noodle in half and stuff each leg.


Step 4 (optional): Attach bloomers to each leg. I created
mine by sewing two leg pieces with lace attached at the bottom. I wrapped
a piece of fabric around the remaining area.



Step 5: Make a tulle skirt. For a step-by-step tutorial of how
I made this skirt, click here. Attach the skirt around the upper
part of the legs.


Step 6: Decorate shoes and slip onto the bottom of legs.
They should fit snugly on noodles.


Step 7: Attach a wire loop to the top of the
umbrella and hang from a tree or from the ceiling.
