Here’s something you may not know about me:
I really, really, really, REALLY like wreaths. When I started compiling a list of blog tutorials I wanted to consider for Handmade Christmas 2010, it was filled with many, many wreaths. One of which was this lovely Halloween Tulle wreath from Courtney.
Months later when I started designing Christmas ornaments, I let the wreath inspire me, leading me to this:
- Note: I used a roll of 6 inch by 4 yard teal tulle I purchased on mega-clearance a couple of years ago in the Hallmark gift wrapping section, but you could easily use tulle purchased by the yard at a craft or fabric store
Step 1: Form wire into small ring, about the size of a silver dollar
Step 2: Cut tulle into approximant 2 inch strips
- Note: The tulle I used was folded over into 3 layers
Step 4: Repeat step 3, several times, pushing the knots towards one another once tied.
Step 5: Continue with steps 3 and 4 until wreath is full to your liking.
Step 6: Make a size appropriate bow with ribbon and attach using needle and thread through a strong tulle knot on the ring
Step 7: Using strip of ribbon create a loop to use as the ornament hanger
- Note: I use about 6 inches of ribbon for my hanger loops
Step 8: Attach the hanger loop to the back of the bow and tulle knot using the needle and thread
There you have it!
