Greetings Friends! Well Thanksgiving has passed and for many of us, that means we are full swing into Christmas decorations and the thriftier, the better! Today I'm sharing an easy garland I fashioned with dollar store tulle--no sewing required!
I found these circles and rolls of tulle at the dollar store for my Nutcracker Inspired Dress Form. I had some left over and envisioned draping it around some of my decorations for a snowy effect. However on its own, it can be a challenge to hold its form, which means more is needed in order for it to show up.
I soon discovered a simple solution--a knotted garland. I started by cutting long strips from the roll of tulle. Mine were about 7 feet long, but you could cut them any length. Next, I layered two of the circles and pinched them at the center to gather them.
Last, I wrapped the tulle strip around the pinched end of the circle and double knotted. That's it--just repeat until if you've achieved the desired effect.
Here's several ways I used mine with Christmas decorations:
I wrapped it around the bottom of my tablescape centerpiece--I'll share the rest soon!
I added one at the waist of Juliet's ballet tutu and...
...one to my Thrift Store Christmas Tree Farm.
I even tucked some in the chicken feeder on my mantel.
I'll be sharing it decked out for Christmas soon--here's a sneak peek!
Remember the Creating Christmas party begins December 7 and runs through December 11. I'll be sharing Tuesday, December 8 and hope you'll join the party!
Have you added any handmade decorations this year?
