A Fun Tulle Halloween Wreath
When I was trying out for the May Arts design team over the summer, I had some fun with the new tulle available in three different widths over in the shop. While that project was all about pink and peach and ballerinas, I thought it might be fun to play with tulle again – but this time, for something a little less “pretty”.
Yup, that’s right! Halloween is just around the corner, and I thought the new 5” tulle would be the perfect materials for a wreath for my front door.
Using the same tying technique that I demonstrated for the tutu projects, this wreath is so easy to pull together. Each piece of tulle was cut to 18” and then looped over top of the wreath base and tied in place. While there were approximately 60 pieces of tulle used in the wreath, it only took about 30 minutes to get them all tied in place.
But perhaps the best part of the whole project for me was that addition of the 2” Webbed Weave ribbon in black (WQ10). This ribbon just screams Halloween, and I love the contrast between the bold texture on this ribbon in from of the more refined texture of the tulle!
While there is nothing “ballerina” about this project, I think it ended up being pretty in its own way! I can’t wait to put it up on my front door!
Thanks for stopping by!
