Tulle is an amazing thing, and no we are not talking about a wrench or a hammer. Though most crafting fiends know exactly what Tulle is, those who are new to the crafting game may not be a aware. So we will use it in a sentence so that you can remember that Tulle is not a Tool. Here is the sentence, “Tulle, is an amazing all-purpose Tool.” You got it? Well now that we all know that Tulle is different from a Tool, let’s take a look at what Tulle actually is.
According to Dictionary.reference.com, the word Tulle is defined as “a thin, fine machine-made net of acetate, nylon, rayon, or silk.” Tulle is a thin netting, like fabric, that is a great tool for those who love to craft and decorate. Here are just a few of the many uses of Tulle:
- Decorate for a Wedding
We know a family who used Tulle for their wedding by draping it from the center of the reception hall and out to each of the walls. They also added strands of lights between the drapes of tulle to fill the small gaps. The end product was a beautiful soft drapery that had a cloud like effect. Other wedding decorating ideas you can use tulle with include table runners, big bows, and drapery for arch’s and doorways.
