Unlike some of my other projects with PVC, this one is so simple that ANYONE could do it.
- 1 piece (or shorter if you can get it) of 3/4 inch PVC. (PVC comes in 10 foot lengths. This makes it sometimes awkward to fit into a car or SUV; however, the 3/4 inch is more flexible so that tends to be less of a problem). Cost? About $2.
- A PVC cutter (in general, I use a chop saw because I am obsessed...but for the 3/4 inch, it's a cinch to cut by hand) Home Depot sells an easy ratcheting PVC cutter by Brasscraft for about $14. You can also use a hacksaw but that's kind of a pain.
- 4 - 3/4 inch slip tees
- 2 - 3/4 inch slip elbows
One tip, if you are making or displaying/storing tutus that are "toddler" size OR using hairbands then your cross pieces should be approximately 8 inches. In general, take the normal width of your tutu waistband and subtract 2 inches for your cross pieces.
