Tulle is sold in a variety of weights, colors, surface textures and embellishments. Glitter, iridescent sheen, metallic and beaded tulle are sold along with the stiff, most-thought-of net-like material. Turn various scraps of tulle into interesting flowers that look like they float on air.

Things You’ll Need:

Tulle scraps
Scissors
Lighter
Glitter glue
Fabric glue
Optional – Embellishments such as beads, sequence and rhinestones
Optional – Glue dots

Instructions:

Step 1 – Cut the scraps of various tulle into 1-1/2 to 3-inch circles. Three to five various circles are used in each flower in a layering process. The circles do not have to be perfect in shape. Draw templates for perfect circles, trace around the edge of the templates, then cut the circles from the tulle.

Step 2 – Melt the edges of each tulle circle with a lighter. Move the lighter quickly along the edge of the tulle. The tulle will melt and curl slightly.

Step 3 – Squeeze glitter glue along the edge of the tulle circle to cover the melted area. Allow the glitter glue to dry completely before continuing.

Step 4 – Select three to five circles all of different sizes. Layer the circles from largest to smallest.

Step 5 (Optional) – Apply embellishments to the surface of the tulle circles. Place a glue dot in the desired location. Press a bead, sequence or rhinestone into the glue dot. Repeat the process for the desired number of embellishments.

Step 6 – Glue the layers together using fabric glue. Allow the glue to dry completely before use.

Cut a leaf from a separate color of tulle. Flip the completely tulle flower over and glue the leaf to the back.
