diy: how to make a tulle light garland

This morning I shared this stunning Urban Eclectic inspiration shoot styled by the lovely Michelle from Pocketful of Dreams and her talented team, and this afternoon I’m thrilled to share a DIY project behind one of the pretty details that caught my eye, a twinkly fairy light garland.

Here it is in action!

How to make a Tulle Light garland

This tulle light garland is such a beautiful prop to use, all soft and ethereal looking it’s perfect to use as a backdrop for your ceremony, a sparkly addition to a cake table or just wrap yourself up in it for a quirky yet pretty portrait of you and your man.  And when I say simple, I mean really simple.

You will need

A String of fairy lights ~ I went for the ones that give off a white light rather than the yellowy kind

A Tulle fabric ~ this comes in many colours so pick one that works for you, mine was a delicate blush pink

{step one} count how many spaces there are between the bulbs on your garland as this is how many strips of fabric you will need

{step two} now cut the tulle into strips, the size is really up to you depending on how big you want your bows

{step three} wrap one of your tulle strips in between each bulb on your string of lights, tie in a knot and repeat with another piece of tulle to give a cross shape effect

{step four} repeat until all the spaces are filled with tulle, plug in and admire the pretty glow.

A big thank you to Michelle for sharing!  We’d love to hear if you’re going to try this out for your big day?

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
