Tulle balls are so easy and cheap! Plus they make an adorable accent to any centerpiece or girly party themed decor.
I recycled an old spool from some half inch ribbon I recently used up. I ripped the two larger circles off to create two flat donut shaped pieces of cardboard. To make a tulle ball you simply wrap the tulle around as shown above until all of the cardboard has been covered up. The thicker the better!
Once complete, you carefully cut the edge around the outside circle, be careful not to lose the end of the tulle! Run a small bit of tulle, maybe 6 inches or so, in between the two pieces of cardboard, without completely pulling the tulle off! VERY IMPORTANT! Tie it securely and then slide the pieces of cardboard off.
Trim the tulle to ensure it’s all the same size and you’re done! Glue these to dowel rods or colored paper straws or hang from the ceiling with fishing line, tulle or ribbon. The possibilities are endless!
The bigger the cardboard the bigger the tulle ball. I was able to make 20 out of one single roll of $3 tulle and it really only took an 30 mins. Such a quick, cute and thrifty decoration.
