Tiny Pink Teacup Tulle TreeJanuary 15th, 2009 in member junk
I know this is late for Christmas, but didn't have the nerve to post it until today for some reason (first time caller, long time listener). I used new pink tulle fabric because I couldn't find old. First I glued a small bottle with a narrow neck to the inside bottom of the tea cup with epoxy. I stuck a narrow dowl rod about 14 inches into the narrow bottle. The weight of the bottle keeps the dowl & cup upright. I cut the tulle in various widths, folded the pieces in half, stitched loosely on the fold and then pulled the thread tight to form a tiny round opening like a tiny tutu. After pulling thread tight, I tied the threads and then slid the 7 or 8 rings of tulle over the dowl to form a little tree. I wired vintage white glass beads from a necklace together to form the "star" and then stuck the wire into a tiny hole I made in the top of the dowl. I hot glued the glass beads onto the layers of tulle, added a pink satin "skirt" & topped it off with a white satin ribbon & bow. I'm not a fussy gal, (you can usually find me in the garage at an estate sale going through the junk!), but I rather liked this creation.
