Today I have another fairly simple project to enhance your outdoor entertaining, particularly for little ones who like a little whimsy. This tulle tent was originally created for JoAnn summer trends look book, and I’m excited to share a few extra pictures with you. If you don’t mind wrestling tulle, you can put together this fun project in just a short amount of time.
Basically, you cut your long pieces of tulle and then scrunch them around a wreath form that can be hung up in a tree or other high peak.
I sewed the tulle around the wreath, but you could hot glue it for a no-sew project! Whatever you prefer. I’ve included a photo of the top of the tent above so you can picture how it’s done. I provided full tulle tent instructions on the JoAnn website.
I used approximately 20 yards of tulle for this project – if you can get your tulle on sale for 50 cents a yard or so, it really makes it an inexpensive project.
I think the hanging tulle tent makes the perfect little defined space for a girly tea party, but I also discovered that the soft, flowy tulle gives a gorgeous glow and backdrop to photos.
These girls had an absolute blast playing under the oak tree after I finished with everything for the project. I wish I could leave this thing set up all year long!
Do you think hanging a tulle tent in your yard would go over well? What would put under the canopy?
