When I started really thinking about what I wanted for Reagan’s room, I knew that I wanted to capture her personality. My daughter is all things girly, sassy, pink, and everything that you’d always imagine a fantastic three year old would be. Reagan adores dressing up, anything that sparkles, and all things soft so I feel like this tulle garland is a perfect compliment to her and her room.
Are you ready to make your own super adorable garland?
A quick flashback before we get started: I remember thinking back to the moment I found out that I was having a little girl and for a split second, I have a moment of panic. I feared that I was going to have a tomboy that I wouldn’t know quite what to do with; anyone who knows a lick about me knows that I am about the opposite of a tomboy. Don’t get me wrong — I was absolutely thrilled to be having a healthy baby, no matter the outcome. I am just loving how absolutely girl Reagan is.
- 2 – 25 yd. spools of pink tulle
- white pom poms
- yarn needle
- floral wire
1. I found a book that that was about 10 inches wide and wrapped the tulle around the book 10-15 times. Make sure it’s pulled tight.
2. Carefully slide the loops of tulle of of your surface, pinching the center of the loops together.
3. Wrap the floral wire tightly around the pinched area of the tulle loops. Cut the excess wire off.
4. Carefully cut the loops on each side of what now looks like a pretty sweet bow.
5. Spread apart the tulle strips to create the pouf. Repeat steps 1-5 for as many poufs as you’d like to have on your garland. I created seven poufs for mine, but you can do however many you’d like.
I never knew about yarn needles until I figured out that was what I would need to make this project happen. Who knew such a genius item existed for less than a $1.50 at Walmart? I love that you can learn new things every day. 🙂
6. See how nicely the yarn fits through the yarn needle? I’m still amazed.
7. Now you start creating a pattern. I alternated 2-3 poms between the tulle poufs. It might be tough to push through the poms, but stick with it. They’ll make it through.
8. When you’ve got them all strung on the yarn, your amazingly adorable garland is ready to go!
Reagan and I are in love with the results. I just wish I would have thought of this sooner. This would have been a great addition to her cupcake party earlier this year. Maybe next time!
