I came up with these DIY Tulle Topiaries for my daughters upcoming Sophia the First birthday party. I wanted something pretty and feminine and a tad whimsy that I could add to the dessert table and I think that these fit the bill perfectly. We’re pretty excited for the party around our house. I am 100% ready, just need the day to arrive!
Tulle (I did by the yard, but a spool would be even better)
Straw or dowel
Shredded Paper or Easter Basket Fluff
Hot Glue Gun
DIY Tulle Topiaries Directions:
First, we need to make a tulle pom pom. I didn’t actually document how I did this. I just folded the tulle up, trimmed it up, tied it in the middle and poufed it up. What? That didn’t help? OK, well I did a Google search and found a Tulle Pom-Pom Tutorial by the girls at Eighteen25 that looks like it would be easy as pie!
Using washi tape, wrap it around a straw, covering it completely. Secure it to the tulle pom pom with hot glue.
Add a hole in the center of your styrofoam (that has been cut to size of your pot) and then cover it in Easter Basket filler or shredded paper.
Insert the styrofoam into your flower pot and stick in the straw with attached pom pom.
Optional: attach embellishments. That’s it! Now you’ve got a couple of cute items for a princess party.
Are you getting excited to see the whole party pulled together? ME TOO! I know it is going to look great and I can’t wait to see my daughters face when she walks into her own backyard that has been glammed up!
So pretty – any little (and big!!) girl would love this!!
Oh Kim, I love it! You are totally making me want to have a Sofia the First party for Natalie! And her bday isn’t til October LOL! These are adorable!!!
HAHA – It’s such a fun theme. We just love Sofia in our house, and I love how girly I get to be with this theme!
I love using the washi for the dowel! It adds just the right touch.
Gotta love washi! It is just so versatile and can really add zing to something that is typically plain.
These are adorable and love wrapping the dowel in the washi tape!
That is so sweet! Great for a fairy party!
So very true! These would work for any girly/whimsical party! Change up the butterfly, or the colors. Love how customizable it is.
These topiaries are adorable. Love them!! Happy Birthday to your daughter.
