Danielle here again!! Today I’m going to show you how to make these easy tulle hair bows! Have you seen all the amazing colors of tulle that HBC has?!

Supplies Needed:
Tulle (6″) Purple, Pink
Upholstery Thread and Needle
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Empty 3/8″ Ribbon Spool
Cardboard Piece
Felt Circles
Alligator Clips

Bow #1 – Tulle Puff

DSCN5495Step 1: Cut the center out of your empty ribbon spool.

DSCN5496Clip one end of your purple tulle to the top of the ribbon spool.
Wrap your tulle around the spool several times (I wrapped mine about 8 times, the more you wrap it the bigger your finished bow will be).
Use your alligator clips to hold the tulle in place.

Step 2: Keep your alligator clips on your tulle.
Wrap your upholstery thread around the center of your tulle, pull tightly and tie off.

After your cut both ends your tulle puff will look a little wild! Use your scissors to trim up the uneven spots.

After you are done wrapping the tulle carefully slide the cardboard piece out.

Step 2: Crease and fold your bow. I used a jumbo salon clip to hold the bow in place while I got my needle and thread ready.
