‘Tiny Dancer’ Ballerina Elf

Ballerina Elf | Elf Ideas on organizedCHAOSonline

I loved turning Cinnamon into a ballerina!  I’ve listed the supplies I used below, but just using a bit of imagination, you could go way over the top with this one. I thought about making the whole bodice, but with so much fluff to her tutu, I think it would have been a wasted effort!

My favorite part of this outfit though are the ballet shoes – and they’re soo easy! Get your glue gun and ribbon out and go crazy!

Supplies Needed:
