Cute and easy tulle gift wrap bow!


I make these poof bows for so many gifts! They're so simple and super cute! :) All you need is tulle and scissors! Here's how it works...
For this particular package, I used two different colors of tulle...you can use one or 100 different colors...whatever toots your whistle (and matches your gift wrap, of course! Let's not be tacky, people!).

Lay out your tulle in long strips. I use anywhere from 4 to 8 strips depending on how full I want my poof to be. On this package, I used 6 strips. Three of each color.

Make sure your strips are long enough to go all the way around your package and still have enough left over to tie into a bow.

Fold your tulle strips in half to find the middle.

Place your package directly in the middle of your tulle strips. *It doesn't really have to be exactly even...we'll be trimming this sucker down in a minute.

Tie your tulle around the gift. Just like you tie your shoes. This bow doesn't have to be pretty so don't stress over it!

Cut the big loops on your bow like the picture shows.

Trim down the ends as small as you want your poof to be...

Pull apart the layers of tulle and just fluff as you go. There's no real science to it, just separate and fluff until it looks cute!

TADA! You did it! Now go and impress your friends!

Have a blessed Wednesday! Yummy chicken enchiladas for dinner tonight! Perhaps I'll post the recipe :) only if I feel like it. ;)
