DIY & Design: Ombre Tulle Bow Belt Embellishment

May 16, 2012

That's a mouth full.

Something about it inspires my inner ballerina.
It brings me back to ballet class- the satin shoes, leotards, classical music...
It's just feminine.

Along with ombre, tulle flower belts are popping up all around.
I thought I'd give the trend my own little spin.

-Ombre Tulle Bow Belt Embellishment tutorial-
(even hard to type)

I wore it like this...

the supplies:
-3 varying shades of a certain color of tulle cut into 3 different sizes (s, m, l) w/ 4 layers of each
-elastic band (I would have used a nude color if I had found it)
-needle + thread
-skinny belt (I used one I already owned)

the steps:

1. fold the tulle over long-wise + make a stitch in the middle
2. fold the ends to meet in the middle, pinch the middle and stitch
-repeat with all three colors of tulle
3. stack all three bows on top of each other (the lighter one on top + darker on bottom)
4. cut & fold over a strip of tulle
5. wrap the strip around the middle of your bow & stitch
6. cut a small piece of elastic band & stitch it to the backside of your bow to make a loop
7. affix your bow onto your belt (push the belt through the elastic loop)

& you're done!

(I would call this a slightly harder DIY)

I would say the possibilities are endless with this bow.
Slip it onto a headband, pin to a t-shirt, etc!
