Pretty, Pretty Tulle

In the spirit of pretty girly things, I will now share with you my pretty, pretty tulle wreath.

Ta Da!

Tulle Wreath

I got inspired by a picture I saw from a super cute ballerina party so, naturally, I went to Pinterest where I happily discovered a lovely tutorial.  I did not take her advice and use an 8 inch wreath form.  Mostly, because when I went there wasn’t one at Hobby Lobby (mine was 12 inches).  I also used just under 120 yards of pink and 75 yards of white, alternating double layers of six, then three knots.

When the basic wreath was complete, I added a ribbon and Mod Podged some girly paper onto a letter (but, you know, that wasn’t good enough because some Tim Holtz paint was on sale and I had to have a reason to try it…).  So, I put a layer of the Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence – a.k.a. White.  It wasn’t quite what I wanted.  To get a good crackle it has to be a thick-ish layer.  When it is that thick it wasn’t opaque, which was more what I was going for.  To tone it down I just sanded the heck out of it.  And, voila, Tulle wreath with letter.

Just another reason, it is a good thing all my girls have four legs.  Ain’t nobody got time for all this!  But, I have committed to a garden party for little T!  Mwahahahahaha!
