We have less than 5 weeks until our third baby arrives and I just now got started on the nursery.  This is the first part of the wall décor which will eventually lead up to the room reveal (and a few other fun tutorials!).  I kind of just winged it as I went along but well over 50 yards of tulle later…I love the end result.  This is the focal point of the main wall.
What You’ll Need:
Spools of 6″ wide tulle in 2 colors (my rolls were 25 yards each and I needed two rolls of each color)
14″ foam wreath form
Wooden Letter for Initial
Spray Paint for letter and branch
3 sheets of felt
Ribbon
Grapevine Branch (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby near the Grapevine wreaths for about $4)

First, I spray painted the branch and the “Q” in Spray Paint.  I used this Rust-Oleum Textured Paint in Nickel.  I’ve used several brands of spray paint and this is by far the least messy, even, and most user-friendly!
I saw a smart tip on Pinterest to put push pins in the bottom of your letter when you paint it to keep it from sticking and it worked great!

I played around with the tulle to find the ideal length and ended up liking the look of 16″ strips the best.  I kept the 6″ width.  I tied on 5 pink strips alternated with 5 white strips until the wreath was filled.  I used a basic double knot tie.

When it was complete I tied the silvery gray ribbon at the top middle in a bow.  Then I hot glued on the “Q” and made 5 of the white felt flowers.  They are the same as the ivory felt flowers I showed you how to make in the tute for this wreath.  Once completed, I hot glued those on as well.  Then I cut a long piece of the silvery ribbon and tied it to the back of the wreath (using the back of the bow ribbon I already tied on as the anchor).  This is what I used to hang the wreath on the wall.First, I nailed the branch to the wall and then I nailed the wreath’s ribbon to the wall just above the branch’s center and wove the excess ribbon length through the branch.

That’s it!

    So pretty! Your little one will love it. Congrats! I’ll have to try this. I have a *ton* of tulle left over from my wedding…uhm, two years ago. Haha.
