DIY: How to Make a Tulle Heart Wreath

How cute for Valentine's Day!

Eileen Behar of Behar Party Designs created this tulle heart wreath tutorial for us to share. Thank you, Eileen!

This wreath is a lot easier to make than it looks.  All you need are the following items from your local craft store and a little patience (sometimes hard for me).

SUPPLIES

  • 1 styrofoam heart wreath base
  • 1 large roll of red wedding tulle (or pink, whatever choice of colors that you choose, or you can make more than one color)
  • Scissors

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cut your tulle into about 8 inch strips (I tend to cut about 10 at a time and then start to tie on the wreath base so I don’t cut too much of my tulle and have spare left over for another project)
  • Take the tulle and tie it around the base – I started at the top peak of the heart (NOTE:  top peak and bottom point are the trickiest to cover).  I tie a double knot and then take another piece of tulle and criss cross tie it over the previous knot, so there is a double overlay for each. Here are some photos demonstrating the knot.

  • Continue the above step until you have covered the entire heart base.
  • When all is covered, take your scissors and trim the tulle to your liking so it has the dimensions and shape you are looking for . (I actually cut and trim as I go along, but everyone has their own way of doing things.)
  • Use your favorite tulle or ribbon and loop through the tulle in the back of the top part of the wreath to create a hanger and VOILA.. A beautiful, inexpensive Valentine’s Day wreath for a gift or to decorate your home or office.

Happy tulle-ing!
