How to Make Tulle Rosettes


Tulle rosettes are often used to adorn wedding gowns or tablecloths for a celebratory event. They also can be attached to a barrette as a beautiful, hair accessory. Although you can buy premade tulle rosettes, they are often costly and generic-looking. One solution is to make tulle rosettes, which can decrease the cost of your event, and will enable the tulle rosettes to have a natural, artistic quality that is difficult to replicate in a commercially produced rosette.

Things You'll Need

  • Tulle
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Cut out a strip of tulle measuring 4 inches high by 16 inches long.

  • Fold the tulle strip in half horizontally, pinning along the edge as you go.

  • Sew along the pinned edge. Remove the pins. This will make a tulle tube.

  • Turn the tulle tube inside out to conceal the sewn edge.

  • Sew along the sewn edge again using a wide, basting stitch.

  • Pull the thread slightly so the edge gathers together.

  • Knot the thread to the tulle to secure the gathered edge.

  • Curl up the gathered tulle tube, starting at one end and working toward the other end. Curl tightly at first, making the curl more loose as you go.

  • Sew the end of the curled rosette onto itself to secure it in place.
