Tulle Christmas Tree

"An easy to make Christmas Tree from tulle, accessible to anyone with basic sewing skills, even beginners. The result is a beautiful ornament which can complement your Christmas decor and can be placed somewhere where a full size Christmas tree would not fit. The tree is beautiful in itself and does not need extra decorations. It can be used as a Christmas tree for a fairy house, and can be a project that you could complete together with your children or grandchildren."

NotesThere is a free YouTuibe video tutorial, the link can be found following the HTML link for the project.

Materials List

  • Tulle fabric (around 1 yard) sprinkled with glitter
  • Thin metal wire – half a yard
  • Strong thread for gathering tulle (matching color)
  • Small piece of fabric for a star
  • Glue (and glue gun)
  • Sewing machine


  1. Cut 12 strips for the Tulle Christmas Tree. Patterns in images

  2. You don’t need to finish edges because tulle fabric doesn’t fray.

  3. If you need to get wrinkles out – iron tulle with a thick cotton pressing cloth. Never iron tulle directly – it will melt.

  4. The next step is gathering each strip with a sewing machine. For this you will need to make gathering stitches. Set your machine for sewing gathers – set tension to 0, stitch length to 4. Use color matching thread, strong. Keep seam allowances ⅜ in (or 1 cm)

  5. Pull bobbin thread and gather each strip fully. Cut long threads and tie all threads together. You need to make 12 circles from each tulle strip.

  6. Take a metal wire and make a quick-fit stand – a small ring for the bottom and one central stick for all the layers.

I am a subscriber, but I cannot find the password anywhere, the one for the free resource library. I also want to know if the tulle circles are just stacked on each other or if there is wire in between the layers. But mostly, I need to know how to find the pattern. Thank you!
