tulle pom pom how-to

i might’ve gone a little overboard and bought a WHOLE LOT of tulle.  we’re talking MILES of tulle here, people.  this little project today uses 14 entire feet of it.  i might need to make a few (dozen) more. =D

little puffy balls!  here’s how.

the tulle i have is about 6″ wide.  i cut 1 piece of each color to measure about 2 feet (actually, 2x the width of my laptop, if you want to be exact)

i folded each piece in half, and cut down the middle.  now you have 2 strips to make 2 ballies.

i’m an eyeballer and a pretty good cutter, so i didn’t measure i just hacked at it.   it doesn’t have to be exact, i promise.

unfold each piece and do a running stitch all the way down the middle.  again, don’t be terribly exact, don’t freak if it meanders a little.

pull the tulle tight on the tread and it’ll start to resemble what you want the end product to look like:

take the 2 long ends and tie a tight knot.  trim the ends – if you’re going to tie it to something, leave a long tail.  if you’re going to string them, trim the tails way down.

to make the little bunting, poke a threaded needle through the center of each one to put them on a line.  squoosh em together, push them apart, stick em in a bowl, they are SO CUTE!

i want to make enough to roll around in them.  heavens knows i have enough tulle!
