Backstory: I have been wanting to make a canopy for quite awhile but I had originally wanted to make it with a Hula hoop but those were 5.88 and the small wire wreath was only 1.77 so I decided to workwithit instead. Beauty guru’s may be using these wire wreaths for ring lights but us crafters can use it to make a romantic-Tutu-like Canopy ♥
What I Used:
Two Rolls Of Tulle ( The more, the better and the better quality, the better)
One Small Wire Wreath Form
White & Pink Ribbon
How It’s Done:
Step 1) Take two even pieces of ribbon and lay them in a + (plus sign) formation inside of your wreath, you will tie your ribbons to the outer ring of your wire wreath. I used the hot glue gun to glue each knot down to the wreath so that the string would not move and throw the wreath out of balance
Step 2) Twirl the very top of your ribbon into a loop and tie together either by using a small rubberband or a piece of tape. * I used a piece of tape because it was, what I had in the moment
Step 3) Find a place to hang your ribboned wreath. * I just taped a hanger upside down in my bathroom doorway and put it there but you could also just hang it on your shower curtuan rod by using a shower curtain ring.
Step 4) Take a long piece of tulle ( how long depends on how long you want the tulle tutu to be and fold it in half. Then take the top middle of your tulle, make a loop U shape with it and hold it up to the front of your wreath. You will then take the loose bottom of your tulle and wrap it under your wire wreath, then over, into the loop that you have, then just tighten the knot.
Step 4) Just continue to do this repetitively with tulle until the canopy is as full and opaque as you would like 🙂
Step 5) ( Optional): Tie some ribbons around your canopy and wala….
Cute, simple and it cost no more than five dollars to make. Admittedly, I would say that it is best to invest in your tulle if you are doing this project beyond crafty fun because the cheaper tulle just streads easier when cut and crinkles vs. the more expensive tulle is softer and not so staticy. Nevertheless, I had fun making this and I hope that if you choose to do so, you would too! I think it would be adorable for a little girl room or even a baby room 🙂
