How to Make Studded, Tulle Rose Wall Hanging, Easy & Inexpensive DIY Home Decor
by Kristin Omdahl
A while back, during a knitting marathon while watching one of my favorite guilty pleasure TV shows, I saw an usual presentation of a bouquet of roses delivered in a box. It looked like a very large box of chocolates but inside the roses were shortened to fit the box and tightly placed together. The texture of the flowers was so beautiful and the memory of that vision stayed with me a long time. I wanted to re-create that type of texture for wall art. Tulle is a great choice for making roses because it is easy to use and very forgiving. I researched glues and adhesives for a while and the one suggested below really worked well because of the thick texture and delayed dry time. For added flair and drama, I love the contrast of adding metallic studs to frame the delicate tulle roses. The supplies are inexpensive, the project is easy to do, and the finished project looks like a million bucks. What is not to love?
What you will need:
Canvas, shown in 24″ x 36″
(240) 1/2″ pyramid studs, quantity depends on size of canvas used
Construction adhesive (Power Grab is the brand used in this project)
20 yards of tulle fabric
Offset spatula (or plastic spoon will work fine)
