A tulle table skirt creates a soft and dreamy feel to your party display. You can easily create your own, that is simple, inexpensive, and requires no sewing! It’s basically a tutu for your table.
- 2 rolls of tulle, 6 inch wide x 100 yards
- 5/8 inch fold over stretch elastic (2-3 inches longer than your table)
- Fabri-Tac adhesive
- Chiffon flower trim, enough to cover 3 sides of your table
- Straight pins or safety pins
First, cover your table with a tablecloth and wrap the elastic along the top edge of the table and tie it in the back.
Pin the elastic to the tablecloth in various spots to keep it secure while you add your tulle.
To create your skirt you will need to cut your rolls of tulle. Each strip should be double the height of your table. My table is 35 inches high so I cut each strip 70 inches long.
To Attach the tulle to the elastic, fold one strip in half and then place the loop over and behind the elastic.
Grab the tails of the tulle and pass them through the loop.
Tighten the tulle, it should look like a tie, with the knot in front. The smaller your knot, the more tulle you will need.
Continue attaching the tulle. If your table will be against the wall, you only need to cover 3 sides.
Attach the trim by applying small beads of adhesive along the top edges of the skirt.
Hold the trim in place until it dries, work in small sections until all sides are covered.
