How to Make DIY Tulle Trees – Easy Winter and Christmas Decor Project
There’s something almost enchanting about tulle, isn’t there? I used some in my wedding decor, and if I had a little girl I would dress her up in colorful tulle skirts All.The.Time. Using tulle in holiday decor gives it a whispery wintery look – so pretty!

Supplies needed for making DIY tulle trees:
- 2 20-yard rolls of white tulle (find 6″x25y online here) for two trees
- Dowel rods (find 3/8″x12″ set of 5 online here)
- Wood base
- e6000 super glue
I bought one 36″ long dowel rod and one piece of 12″x4″ balsam wood from Michaels, and I cut each into 3 pieces with my Dremel.
Glue the 12 inch rod onto the base with e6000.
Starting at the bottom, cut the tulle and tie pieces around the rod. I think the bottom pieces were about 12 inches long.
Keep cutting slightly shorter pieces and tying them, pushing the knots tightly together. Arrange and fluff as you go.
At the top I glued a wood button (I had some leftover from another project, but you can buy them at any hardware store) and then I painted it white.
These DIY tulle trees are an easy, gorgeous project to last through Christmas and all winter long. It might even be fun to have a tulle tree making party!
Don’t my tulle trees look like frosty snow-covered evergreens?
They certainly look pretty with my glittery reindeer.
I bet you’re wondering “Weren’t there 3 rods?! Where’s the other one?”
Yes, there were three, but it turns out that 40 yards of tulle can only make two 12-inch trees. Bummer.
Where have you used it before – and have you tried it in your holiday decorating?
