Step 1: Paint on the skin

Paint the top third of your toilet roll in a skin colour of your choice.

We used acrylic paints, which cover the cardboard well.

Pick a colour for your princess’ dress and paint the rest of the toilet roll in this colour.

Paint your princess’ hair, using whatever colour you like and in whatever style you like.

Will your princess be blond or brunette? Will she have wavy hair, pigtails or a long ponytail?

Step 5: Add the tulle netting

Spread a line of glue all round the middle of your princess.

You can use a glue gun to make sure it is really sticky or use strong tacky glue.

Cut a strip of tulle netting and start gluing it round your tube. As you work your way around the paper roll, fold the tulle (rather than stretching it across the roll). This will make the skirt fuller as it will have more folds.

Step 6: Add a ribbon trim

To neaten up the edges, tie a strip of ribbon round the top of your net skirt. You could also use a thin strip of netting and tie this around instead.

Your beautiful princess is now ready and dressed for the fairy tale ball.

Why not make some more princesses to join her?
