My Fluffy Puffy Upcycled Skirt (a Thrifty Celeb Copycat DIY)

3 Materials
3 Hours

My thrifty celeb copycat looks are hilarious fun to recreate! I've shared loads over on my site and one of my absolute faves is my awesome Celine Dion look:

I’m totally in love with my colourful version of her floofy skirt!

Take a peek at how I created my fabulously fluffy puffy skirt from upcycled and preloved materials below!

I grabbed a preloved skirt (with a lining) from the back of my closet and my massive stash of unraveled bath puffs!

I always thoroughly rinse and hang my bath puff to dry after use and change it every few weeks. Before upcycling my bath puffs I make sure they are bacteria and germ free by giving them a soak in an equal parts hot water and white vinegar mixture.

My skirt was longer than Celine’s so I chopped it to my desired length.

Then gave it (and the lining) a nice hem.

I then oh so carefully stitched layer after layer of unraveled bath puffs around the skirt!

I absolutely adore this skirt and it looks pretty fab with a variety of tops and tights!

    How would you launder something like that?

    re Reply: Thank you. Seeing as how the puffs are used regularly in the shower with soaps and gels I suppose they would be fairly immune to chemical damage but the lingerie bag makes sense so they don't get torn up by other items.
