You will want to prep the skirts before the party starts. Each green plastic table cloth will make four skirts - based on an average 8-11 year old girl. Unwrap the table cloth and unfold it completely lengthwise, but keep it folded horizontally so that it is doubled over one time. Lay it out flat on a table or on the floor. Then fold down 6 inches from the top of the table cloth. Make sure you fold down from the side that has the original fold, not the open edge. I called this action making the belt. The belt goes on their waist when they wears it.
Tape the folded piece down periodically using double sided tape. I put a little strip about every 12 inches.
Now, cut the table cloth into four equal sections. I counted the creases that were made from the folds when the plastic was in a package. Each of my skirts were four fold creases wide. These easy Moana skirts are prepped for the Moana party guests.
Give each girl a grass skirt piece, a pair of scissors and a set of Hawaiian flower stickers.
Create fringe by cutting the skirt into two inch strips. Start at the bottom and slide the scissors up towards the belt. Do not cut through the 6 inch belt section. Encourage the crafters to keep their cuts straight and thick.
Once all of the fringe is finished, let the girls decorate the waist belt area with the flower stickers. I told them to keep the flowers towards the center of the belt because the sides of the skirt will overlap in the back.
When the flowers are all in place, this easy Moana skirt is ready to hula! Wrap the skirt around their waist and tape it in place with double sided tape.
