Ballerina Elephant

Not every elephant dreams of running away with the circus; this little twinkletoes has decided to pursue her love of ballet. It's recital day, and she stands atop her paper maché trinket box stage, fully dressed in her frilly tutu with its pink bow, a bejeweled crown, and her favorite necklace: a strand of pearls with a tiny star charm on it!

Someone has thrown a flower up on stage to express how much they enjoyed her dance.
This one was really fun to make. I gathered up a strip of tulle for the tutu, and then added the cutest little ruffle and some pretty pink ribbon on top. I made the little crown with some silver glitter, some lightweight wire, and some faux pearls. I've never tried to make a necklace for any of the elephants I've done, but this one just begged for it. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I only have a few of these elephants left. I sure am going to miss them when they're gone. 


  1. I would love to buy 8 of these for a baby shower ! Please let me know if this is possible

    1. Hi Christina,
      I only have four elephants left, and unfortunately, I'm unable to get any more. If you'd like to order four (or less), contact me through etsy and I'll set up a reserve listing for you. The ballerina elephants are $35 each.
