DIY: Anthropologie inspired Tulle Tendril Bib

DIY Anthropologie Tulle Tendril Bib

Today’s DIY is a reader request!  The lovely Lauren sent me this gorgeous Anthropologie Tulle Tendril Bib as an idea for a potential project.  The piece is stunning, but also very expensive.  (And if you couldn’t tell from yesterday’s post, I’m having a major moment with tulle right now.)  Always up for a challenge, I gave the project a whirl.  I’m not going to lie… this one involved a lot of glue and got messy at times, but I think the end result is worth the irritation and mess… I hope you give it a try!


Materials // Where to Buy:  Felt (I used an old sweater that I had felted by putting in the washer) // about a yard of grosgrain ribbon, about 1/4″ wide // 5 brass bezels // some tulle that you will shred up // about 14″ metallic lace trim // rhinestones, both small + large. // not pictured:  E6000 glue // fabric glue




And you are done!
