I absolutely love these types of wreaths! It’s similar to making a deco mesh wreath, but tulle is softer, and sometimes easier to work with (sometimes). They are perfect for baby shower gifts, bridal shower gifts, house warming gifts, or any other type of gifts. It looks complex, but it is simple to do. If you have never made one, or you don’t feel your craft, you will be just fine.
I made the one above for a friend’s bridal shower. Those were here wedding colours, and she loved it. You can use any colour tulle you like depending on the occasion, season, your personal preference, or mood. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture (bad me), but I made one for a girl baby shower once. I use pink, white, and silver tulle, and added a pink polka dot bow on top. It was absolutely adorable.
- *12″ wire wreath frame (if you want a larger or smaller wreath use a larger or smaller frame)
- (Again us whatever colours you like. Here is what I used)
- Roll of 25yd tulle in *white
- Roll of 25yd tulle in *aqua
- Roll of 10yd tulle in *silver
- *Pipe cleaners
- *Scissors (You probably have your own, but I love these craft ones 😉 )
Let’s Get Crafty!
I worked with the two inner rings of the wire frame. I consider the second ring out the “inner ring” and the third one out the “outer ring”. If you want a larger wreath, use the fourth ring out.
1. Cut pipe cleaners in half and put three half pipecleaners on the outer cirlce in each section.
2. Cut 24″ of the white tulle. Fold them in half twice, and tie them down to each pipe cleaner.
3. Add three half pipe cleaners to each section of the inner ring.
4. Cut 24″ of the blue tulle and the silver tulle. Fold each strip in half twice. Alternate colours by tying a blue tulle to one pipe cleaner, and a silver one to the next.
5. Continue adding tulle until the wreath is full. If you feel you need to add more pipe cleaners to tie more tulle down, go ahead. To save pipe cleaners, you can also tie two tulle pieces to the same pipe cleaner.
6. Fluff your wreath until satisfied.
7. Hang on wall, door, above mantel, or give as a gift.
(Please note: tulle can be hung outside, but if it rains, I would advice you to bring it in. I will service a rain storm, but is not as weather proof as deco mesh. It will droop when wet and will take a while to dry.)
These are simple directions, but you can jazz it up to your own delight. Add ribbons, bows, more tulle, fabric, or whatever you like.
