DIY Halloween Tulle Wreath

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

This was such an easy and fun project for my front door!

Things you will need:
14" wreath form (I used one of the twig ones but styrofoam works just as well)
25 yards of black tulle (the kind on a spool that is about 5" wide)
25 yards of orange tulle (again the kind on the spool that is about 5" wide)
10 yards Black Silk Ribbon- 1.5 or 2" wide
A patterned ribbon of your choosing
Fabric Scissors

*TIP: If you are using one of the twig wreath forms like I used then it is a good idea to leave the plastic wrap on it so that it isn't as messy and it will also prevent the twigs from getting wet in rain or inclement weather.*

  1. Wrap the wreath form in black silk ribbon so that the entire form is covered and cannot be seen. It is a good idea to use some pins and secure the ribbon on the inside of the wreath form so that the ribbon doesn't move.
  2. Take your spool of black tulle and cut it into strips that are 18" long.
  3. Take your spool of orange ribbon and cut it into strips that are 18" long.
  4. Take a strip of black tulle and tie it onto the wreath form. You want to tie a square knot (left over right and then right over left). Do this with another black strip.
  5. You will then do that same thing with 2 orange strips.
  6. Repeat with 2 black and then 2 orange. (I use 2 of each to make the colors stand out and not bland in too much with each other). 
  7. Push the pieces of tulle close to each other as you are tying them on so that they "poof".
  8. Continue until you have no more tulle or your wreath is full and you are satisfied with how poofy it is.
  9. At the bottom center of the wreath tie the decorative ribbon that you chose around the wreath and tie a bow!
  10. At the top attach a loop to hang the wreath with pins to the back of the wreath.
  11. Hang it up and enjoy!!!
