Tulle Mini Wreath Ornament

November 25, 2010

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

Instructions:

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
