Take your tulle and scrunch it up and place it in your palm. Wrap the tulle around your hand about 15 times. Cut off the excess tulle.

If you want to make a bigger puff, wrap the tulle around something larger. The width of whatever you’re wrapping is the size of the puff.

Slide the tulle off of your hand.

Cut a small piece of tulle, about 6″.

Place the wrapped tulle on top of the piece of tulle we just cut. That piece needs to be in the center and then just tie a super tight knot.

Take the ends of the tulle we used to tie around the main tulle and bring it up on either side and cut it flush with the edge.

Now grab your scissors and cut the loops on both ends.

You’ll get this funky looking tulle thingy.

Spread apart the tulle. Pull it gently away from the outside toward the center. Be patient and be sure to get every piece of tulle. If you see any ends sticking out or that have rough edges, you can make them even.

Find a good spot for your clip and line it with hot glue and place it on the tulle puff. Hold it for awhile to make sure it’s secure.

Now hold the tulle puff open where the bow is going to go. I look all around the puff and put the bow on the side that isn’t as round. Put hot glue on your bow and then place it on the puff. Again, be sure to hold it until secure.

    Thank you, Shirley, for the written version of the video tutorial for these adorable bows! Sadly, I am still without functioning computer speakers, and the written versions of TRR videos fill in the gaps!

    On a side note, the pink puff bows are just as sweet as the red ones! xoxo

      Thank you Pat! I am so very glad that you are loving the written version of these fun little bows since you aren’t able to get all of the instructions by watching the video tutorials without sounds. Have a great day and thank you again! Michelle 🙂
