TULLE CHRISTMAS TREES
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 3 - 4 meters of Tulle (Gold, Red and White)
- 3 x Dowel rods
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- 3 x Kaisercraft round natural coaster - 9cm
Step 1 - Start by gluing the dowel rod onto the round coaster using a hot glue gun and glue sticks.
Step 2 - Cut your tulle into varying sized strips. Decide on the width you would like the base of your tree to be and start cutting pieces that measurement x 15cm wide. Continue to cut strips 15cm wide but gradually make the length shorter following the below diagram to create the shape of your tree. You will need roughly 10 pieces per length but you can always cut more tulle as you go if you want to fill it out more.
Step 3 - Starting from the base begin tying each piece of tulle into a knot around the dowel rod. Continue this until all the pieces of that length are tied around the dowel. Push them down to condense and bunch the tulle together.
Step 4 - Now repeat Step 3 with each layer until your tree is full and all the tulle pieces have been tied on.
Step 5 - Use scissors to trim your tree into shape and add a decoration on top to finish it off!
Step 6 - Repeat the same process to make 3 different sized trees.
