How to Decorate a Trellis With Tulle

For birthday parties or outdoor weddings, nothing says “special occasion” like yards of billowing tulle. Transform your garden into a fairytale setting by decorating a large trellis using tulle bows and drapes. Add ribbons in your wedding colors for an eye-catching accent or leave the whole design in pristine white.

Cut two lengths of tulle that every measure 6 yards. Fold the tulle in half an hour to find the center of the span and gather this stage by bunching it jointly and winding a rubber band around the crowd. Do this with both lengths of tulle.

Cut four 18-inch lengths of florist wire. Put a ladder next to one leg of the trellis. Attach the bunched center of one tulle span to the upper part of the trellis, using a length of florist wire. Attach the other length of tulle to the other upper part of the trellis. Allow the ends of the tulle to hang free.

Grab the two left tulle bits halfway between the ends and the point at which they are tied to the trellis. Bunch this component of the tulle across the trellis leg, halfway to the surface, and tie it tightly to the leg with a length of florist wire. Fluff up the excess tulle over the tie into a ballooning pouf, and distribute the tulle beneath the tie into an attractive skirt layout. Do the same thing using the tulle on the opposite side of the trellis.

Cut 2-yard lengths of decoration in the party or wedding colors and tie them into large bows. Attach the ribbons to the trellis on top and the center of each leg, covering up the florist wire. For an all-white appearance, use more tulle or white satin ribbons to get the bows.
