Here are the supplies you’ll need:Supplies for Tulle Christmas Angel

  • 24″ length 6″ tulle
  • 36″ length 6″ tulle
  • 24″ length 1/8″ organza ribbon
  • Three 18″ lengths Bowdabra bow wire
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Wooden disk  with a diameter of 5/8″ to 3/4″
  • Rhinestone
  • Hot glue

Here’s how to make the Tulle Christmas Angel:

  1. Cut tulle and ribbon to length. Quickly pass the ends of the ribbon through a flame to seal them.
  2. The angel is made in three parts. Let’s begin with the body. Fold a length of bow wire in half and place it in the Mini Bowdabra. You can tuck the wire ends under the Mini Bowdabra so they are out of the way.Wire in Mini Bowdabra Silver
  3. Scrunch the 36″ length of tulle into the Mini Bowdabra with ½” to ¾” of tulle extending on one side of the pillars and the remaining tulle on the other side.Scrunch Body Tulle in Mini Bowdabra
  4. Compress the tulle with the Mini Bowdabra wand. With the tulle still in the Mini Bowdabra, pass the ends of the bow wire through the loop, and tighten. Tie a secure knot on the back of the bow, leaving the wire ends long. The body piece is complete and can be set aside while we make the wings
