Create your Own No-Sew Tulle Table Skirt!

 

It’s time to think out of the box, and create something new on our DIY Corner; a brand new feature on our blog for you, where we will share tips, tricks, and interesting new ways to use our products.

As a reprise of our popular Tutu Tutorial Video we did last year, This week’s feature is a DIY Tulle Table Skirt that requires absolutely no sewing and minimal materials. Does it sound almost too good to be true? Although it does take a bit of work it, the outcome is so amazing that it will leave your guests believing that you are a crafting genius!

 

You can also follow along our Tutu Tutorial video on youtube  on how to tie the knot onto the elastic:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4tUlt7xdXA

Start off with your materials:
4-6 Rolls of 6in tulle (depends on how full you want the table skirt and how big your table is)
elastic to fit the edge of your table
scissors
safety pins
cardboard sheet the length of your table to the floor
A Base Tablecloth (We used our Spandex Fitted Tablecloth)

Step 1:
Put the base tablecloth on your table and measure out the edge with the elastic band. The fit should be tight and snug. When you get the fit, safety pin the ends of the elastic and for security, safety pin the corners of the table. (Or 4 opposite points of the table if you are using a round table)

Step 2:
Create your tulle pieces by unwinding your tulle rolls onto the cardboard piece that is the length of how far you want the Table Skirt to hang. Keep on winding until the roll is no more.

Step 3:
When the cardboard is all full of tulle, cut the tulle on ONE of the ends of the cardboard. This will leave a pile of tulle that is twice the desired length of your table skirt.

Step 4:
Continue doing the last step with all your rolls and colors. Depending on how big your table is and how full you would like the table, you may need more rolls. For the fullness in the completed photo, we used 6 rolls of tulle for a standard rectangular table.

Step 5:
When all your tulle is cut, you’re ready to tie the tulle pieces onto the elastic with a slip knot. Not sure how to tie a slip knot? If the following instructions are too confusing, you can follow our youtube tutorial on No-Sew Tutus. The method is about the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4tUlt7xdXA

Start off by folding your tulle pieces in half and slipping the tulle under the elastic on your table. If you want it fuller, you can grab more than one piece at a time. For our table skirt, we used one pink piece and one lavender piece.

As the photo shows, the loop that is formed from folding the piece of tulle in half is peeking out from under the elastic.

Step 6:
Pull the loop over the piece of elastic, and slip the rest of the tulle that is still behind the elastic through the loop. This part may be a bit confusing, but you can see this step in detail on the youtube video linked above.

  

Step 7:
Now that the tulle has been tied onto the elastic, keep going until you reach your way all around the table. If you see the tulle get too heavy for the elastic to hold it up, safety pin the elastic to the tablecloth, and it should help support the weight.


All Done!
