How to make a wreath using tulle: What I’m Makin Monday

I have a friend who is always making her own wreaths and I decided to give it a whirl myself using tulle since the stuff is coming out of my ears thanks to my short-lived DIY tutu obsession. I’ve never personally seen anyone make a wreath this way, most of the tutorials I see for making your own wreaths are made with yarn or I don’t know what, but stuff I figure would take too long. I wanted to make a 4th of July wreath for our front door.

So I decided to make this Wreath using Tulle that I already had.

This is so easy I literally made it while sitting on my bed with Lil’ J and she was watching one episode of Sesame Street. So don’t judge the tutorial pics.

Materials:
1 roll of 25 yard X 6in red tulle
1 roll of 25 yard X 6in blue tulle
1 roll of 25 yard X 6in white tulle
Hay-wreath (I got mine for $4 at Hobby Lobby)
White felt or card board
Glue

Don’t take the plastic off the wreath. You’ll be tempted but trust me, don’t do it. It sheds and takes forever to clean up and it can get between the tulle and look not as pretty. So just keep the plastic on.

Step 1: Wrap the blue tulle around 1/4 of the wreath. Just start wrapping and keep wrapping until it looks like a nice solid blue and to your taste of fullness. When you’ve reached the desired look, cut the tulle from the roll and tuck the loose end into the tulle that’s already wrapped up.

Step 2: Wrap a strip of red tulle next to the blue and let it cover about 6in of the wreath or about 1/8th the total size. A trick I used to go faster and use less tulle is twist the roll of tulle around once as it goes around the wreath, it makes it fill up faster and make the color less sheer. When you’ve reached the desired look, cut the tulle from the roll and tuck the loose end into the tulle that’s already wrapped up.

Step 3: Wrap a strip of white tulle the same way as the red. Alternate the colors going around the wreath until it’s full.

Step 4: Trace and cut out stars, then glue them on the blue section on the wreath.

TADA!

Cute no? … I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty impressed myself.


We love how you claim to not be crafty, but then you’re always making all kinds of cute things. Love the wreath and we loved it as a hula hoop on little J too!

What i do not realize is in truth how you’re not actually much more well-liked than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You understand thus significantly when it comes to this subject, produced me individually consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be involved until it’s one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. All the time maintain it up!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring
a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a
lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
