We have less than 5 weeks until our third baby arrives and I just now got started on the nursery. This is the first part of the wall décor which will eventually lead up to the room reveal (and a few other fun tutorials!). I kind of just winged it as I went along but well over 50 yards of tulle later…I love the end result. This is the focal point of the main wall.
What You’ll Need:
Spools of 6″ wide tulle in 2 colors (my rolls were 25 yards each and I needed two rolls of each color)
14″ foam wreath form
Wooden Letter for Initial
Spray Paint for letter and branch
3 sheets of felt
Grapevine Branch (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby near the Grapevine wreaths for about $4)
First, I spray painted the branch and the “Q” in Spray Paint. I used this Rust-Oleum Textured Paint in Nickel. I’ve used several brands of spray paint and this is by far the least messy, even, and most user-friendly!
I played around with the tulle to find the ideal length and ended up liking the look of 16″ strips the best. I kept the 6″ width. I tied on 5 pink strips alternated with 5 white strips until the wreath was filled. I used a basic double knot tie.
When it was complete I tied the silvery gray ribbon at the top middle in a bow. Then I hot glued on the “Q” and made 5 of the white felt flowers. They are the same as the ivory felt flowers I showed you how to make in the tute for this wreath. Once completed, I hot glued those on as well. Then I cut a long piece of the silvery ribbon and tied it to the back of the wreath (using the back of the bow ribbon I already tied on as the anchor). This is what I used to hang the wreath on the wall.First, I nailed the branch to the wall and then I nailed the wreath’s ribbon to the wall just above the branch’s center and wove the excess ribbon length through the branch.
