Today I have a little tutorial for you. I wanted to share some tulle pom poms I made for one of the banners.
To get this baby rolling all you need is tulle, fabric scissors, a piece of 4x6 cardstock, wire and scissors that will cut wire. Look, everything fits in your lap. What a great project to work on while you're watching zombie movies, right Tracy? ;)
First thing you do is wrap your tulle around the cardstock. My tulle was 6" wide and I wrapped it around the 4" side of the cardstock.
Pull the tulle off the cardstock, being careful not to unroll what you just wrapped up, and twist a piece of wire around the middle of your tulle. Snip of any excess wire with your wire scissors. You'll be left with a fabulous looking tulle bow tie :)
Next up, take your fabric scissors and cut through the folded ends of your bow tie.
After, pull and fluff the layers of your tulle until you end up with something like this! Isn't it adorable? Almost as cute as my hubby over there. Ha!
Here's another view of my tulle pom pom. I can't wait to make more of these. I'm picturing hair accessories! What will you use YOUR pom poms for?
Be sure to stop back by tomorrow and see finished banner #1 and check out these pom poms in action! Thanks for coming to see me today!
