LEARN HOW TO MAKE THIS DIY TULLE CHRISTMAS TREE CONE WITH RUFFLED TULLE ROLES FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
I have been experimenting with how to use the tulle around the paper mache cones to make this DIY Tulle Christmas tree cone for awhile! I have seen so many people tying the tulle pieces around a pole to make the Christmas tree. It looks beautiful, but I wanted to try ruffling it more with a sewing machine.
This simple cone Christmas tree is one of the five trees in the series I’m making for small spaces! You can either use a sewing machine or just a thread and needle to hand sew to gather the tulle fabric. It did take some effort and patience to glue these around the cone without burning my hand:). If you would like to look at other easy DIY Christmas projects hop on to DIY decoupage ornaments.
I did use a tulle fabric roll here instead of tulle in wide yards. This helps to start the project without cutting the fabric. This DIY Tulle Christmas tree cone is great to put on the book shelf, windowsill, coffee table, your desk, in a tray with some loose ornaments, as table centerpieces and many different ways!
Let’s take a look at how to make these.

MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE THE TULLE CONE CHRISTMAS TREE
- Paper mache cones
- If you are making your own cones, try a poster board
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Pink acrylic paint and paint brush
- Sewing machine or thread and needle to hand sew
- Pink felt sheet
HOW TO MAKE THE TULLE CHRISTMAS TREE
- Choose the right size paper mache cones to make the Tulle Christmas tree.
- Paint the whole cone the color as the tulle you are using. Let it dry.
- I used a sewing machine to gather the tulle fabric roll. You can thread the needle through the tulle and pull the fabric to gather. If you are using the sewing machine, I suggest you to make use of gathering foot (very important step). I made the mistake of just increasing the tension and the stitch length to gather (this had worked well for my ruffled paper streamers but not so much for tulle fabric).
- Once you have gathered tulle roll, you can start gluing around the cone tree. For me, it felt difficult to glue the tulle directly on the cone. I cut strips out of felt sheet and glued the tulle roll as shown. This will make it very easy to glue around the cone.
- Now, start gluing the felt (attached to the tulle) around the Christmas tree cone.
- I added few extra short layers to the top to make it look even. If you have used the gathering foot to sew the tulle fabric, you would have got a better ruffled look than this and you can skip this step.
- At the top, I used some strip of pink velvet ribbon and added a star.
