MAKE A GRASS SKIRT

To make these easy grass skirts, you'll need a roll of green crepe paper, and duct tape.
Cut a piece of duct tape large enough to circle the child's waist plus 4 inches.
Lay it on a flat surface sticky side up.
Now unroll the green crepe paper and lie perpendicular to the tape, lying one end ½ way into the tape.
The length will be determined by the height of the child.
When the tape is full with the crepe paper strips cut another piece of duct tape and lie it sticky side down over the first piece, trapping the crepe paper ends into the "waistband".
Now punch a hole in either end of the duct tape and tie together with a ribbon.
Guys and girls wear grass skirts on the islands! Terrific to dance with.

Sounds great, maybe you could build up layers of skirt using different coloured crepe paper, and a photo of the finished product would really help.
Thanks
