When I work with parents on Custom Party Plans, one of our first steps is to create a Pinterest board where we share ideas. The mom who will be hosting this neon party pinned a neon tulle tableskirt that was stunning. But, I knew it would never fit in her budget. So I came up with the idea of a neon tulle garland. Here’s how you can make your own.

Neon Tulle Party Garland by Double the Fun Parties

Neon Tulle Garland Supplies

  • 5 rolls of neon tulle (I got mine at Hobby Lobby on sale for $2.50 per roll.)
  • Neon grosgrain ribbon, 5/8″ width
  • Scissors
  • Safety pins (To pin the garland to your tablecloth.)

Neon Tulle Garland Instructions

This is one of those projects that is not hard, but is time consuming. You’ll want to find some HGTV or a romantic comedy to help you pass the crafting time. (I chose “Made of Honor” — definitely not a movie that requires much attention.)

When I make fabric or ribbon garlands, I usually cut all my strips and then do all my ties. But tulle is a different beast. It wants to fly around and stick to itself. Not sure how it manages to do both at the same time. Anyway, that means with tulle, I cut, tie, cut, tie, etc. And that process just seems to take longer.

1 – Cut an 8″ length of your first tulle color.

2 – Fold the tulle in quarters long ways.

3 – Fold the tulle in half to form a loop.

4 – Allow about 20″ of ribbon for tying your garland in place.

5 – Put the tulle loop behind your ribbon.

6 – Pull the remaining tulle over the ribbon and through the loop.

7 – Tighten the tulle by pulling on the ends and gently pushing the tie into place.

8 – Trim the ends of the tulle to make them even.

9 – Just keep repeating with your other tulle colors.

10 – Twist the ends of the tulle up and down, then spread out the two tail ends of each piece of the tulle. This will give you the full look. I probably will fluff this even more when it’s in place at our party. My finished garland is 3 feet of tulle with 20 inch ties on either end.
