Tulle . . . Its Not
Just for Weddings Anymore!

In the past, people associated tulle
almost exclusively with weddings. However, tulle is so versatile
and easy to use it makes any craft or design project into a
"tulle-rific" project. Listed below are some of our
favorite Christmas-related ideas for using tulle:
- Wrap gift baskets or other gift items
in tulle for an elegant and unique presentation. Simply
place the basket in the center of a precut 36"
square, or the 54" tulle, and gather the tulle at
the top of the basket and tie with your favorite ribbon.
All of the wonderful items inside are still visible and
you have a great alternative to cello or shrink-wrap.
- Weave the 6" tulle or tulle with
sparkles* through your Christmas tree instead of
traditional garland for a heavenly look.
- Use the 6" tulle or tulle with
sparkles* to make bows to enhance any gift packaging.
Tulle has no "memory," so it can be srcunched
up, tied into a bow, and then fluffed out so effortlessly
with beautiful results.
- Using a pre-formed wreath frame, the
contrasting textures of tulle combined with other ribbons
simply woven through the wreath form, create beautiful
wreaths that can be used year-round. You can even use a
regular wire-coat hanger to make an exquisite wreath
entiely of tulle. See "Tulletide" Wreath
- Party favors wrapped in tulle can add
an elegant accent to any dinner party. Try wrapping your
favorite holiday candles in tulle circles, tie them with
matching curling ribbon, tie a hole-punched seating card
to the ribbon and place at each seat.
- Dress up an old Christmas ornament in
tulle and accent it with wonderful curling ribbon.
Whether you use any
of these ideas or create your own unique projects, you can turn
this Yuletide into Tulletide!
