Tulle Flower Tutorial

Today I am going to share a fun and easy Tulle Flower Tutorial with you.  Tulle is a very inexpensive material and comes in many colors!  You can find it in the scrapbooking section these days as a fabulous embellishment or head on over to the sewing section for your craft store you and will find a larger selection of it.

Today I am using a wonderful collection of Tulle from Glitz. 
I have cut a section 5 inches by 5 1/2 inches.  If you would like to make a smaller or lager flower simply cut the fabric accordingly. 

Gather your tulle in a line and put a coordinating thread or fiber through one end and then the other end. Do this twice, making two 'stitches' to pull the ends of the tulle together.

Your tulle should now be in the shape of a circle.  Pull tight on the fiber to secure the circle shape.

This next step will secure the bottom of the flower.  Using the fiber and needle that are still in your flower move to the middle of the flower and make one stitch from the bottom of one side of the tulle to the next.
Once you pull tight this will close the bottom of your flower.  Tie off each end of the fiber with a knot and trip off excess fiber. 

Next us can get creative and fill in the middle of the flower with your personal touch.  I used a rose ribbon to accent the middle of this flower.

I use this flower to embellish a birthday card.

Here is a second example of a tulle flower on a layout. 

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial!
