You Will Need:
- 4 Yards Tulle (for adult size you may want at least 6 yards)
1.) Cut the ribbon the length of the waist measurement plus 15 inches. Tie knots in the ribbon 7 inches in from each end.
2.) Roll the tulle into a long tube and cut 4 inch pieces.
3.) Once your pieces are cut you should have a pile of rolled tulle strips. Unroll a strip and fold it in half end touching end. If this is too long for your needs, you may want to cut at the half, making two strips.
4.) Taking a strip of tulle, fold in half (end touching end). Starting at one knot, put the loop/folded-end on the ribbon. Then pull the ends through the loop thus tying the strip around the ribbon.
