How to use tulle ribbon for gifts
One of my family’s holiday wrapping tips it to use tulle for ribbon on your Christmas presents. It is SO easy to use and anyone can do this.
It looks so cute and only takes a few extra seconds to do. This is one of my favorite gift wrapping ideas.
Does this save money?
Yes, it is a budget friendly idea to jazz up plain gifts. They are actually cheaper than using your ordinary ribbon or those pre-made bows.
What you need:
This year I bought a red roll and a white roll of tulle at Hobby Lobby 50% off. You can find tulle at any craft store. They are each 100 yards each, and cost me around $5 each.
What kind of tulle works best?
Rayon or nylon tulle work best to make bows on gifts. This type is inexpensive and makes a great bow for gifts.
Seem too high?
Well, I thought so too at first, but then I went and looked at ribbon prices. It was going to cost me the same price or more for the ordinary ribbon.
The ribbon would have only lasted me this season, but the tulle will last me much longer. See… I only used about a 1/4 of tulle this year.
I also like to use tulle for Birthday presents and other holidays. These will definitely last me through the entire year and probably through Christmas next year. It is a lot of tulle.
How to use tulle for ribbon for gifts:
- You just tie it on. It is that simple. If you can tie a knot, then you can make your presents look great.
- I just tie tulle around the present and tie a knot.
- If you want the “spiky” look then cut about 4 or 5 short pieces of tulle. Pile them up and then tie them on your original knot.
- If you want the bow look, then tie the tulle around the present and tie a knot (just like you do with the “spiky” bow).
- Then take more tulle and loop it around your hand a few times (just like you are looping an extension cord). Next, tie your loops on your first row. Then fluff. Yes, it is that easy.
Give it a try.
Don’t they just look cute? Tie on some tulle for a really pretty gift.
Wrapping gifts with a diy tulle bow is simple and so pretty.
Disclosure: I am in no way a professional wrapper. In fact, I am pretty lazy when it comes to presents -if all the sides are covered, then I am happy.
With a lot of kids and lots of others to buy for, I am just happy that the presents are wrapped. I thank my sister for giving me this idea, so my presents actually look like I have time to make them look pretty. Thanks sis.
