Glittered Tulle

I've been trying to come up with some ideas on what to make with all of this glittered tulle I've recently acquired. The bulk of it is in a huge box in my garage.
 
This tulle has one finished edge, I think it was intended to be used as little skirts on plush teddy bears.... I took it knowing that I could find something to make with it. Hmmm I think this is how hoarding starts. *sigh* Anywho~ I cut off strips of about 24 inches and hand cut the finished edge off of the one side, wrapped the long piece of tulle around my fingers and created a pom-pom. I tied it together using some thin ribbon and then I hot glued an old vintage earring to the centers. I added a hair clip and some felt to the backside to create...
hair bows!
*Takes a bow*  Yes, yes... a little garish--- but they look so cute plopped on the head of a little kid. Yep, I've got some mad skills, mad skills....
I've got yards and yards... and yards of this beautiful tulle. I'm thinking of making some pom-pom garlands, that would be adorable. Must jot that idea down on my to do list!
big hugs,
Cheryl

Every time I visit I am just amazed by your creativity, these are just the cutest ever, and your garland idea sounds good too! I am like you if I am given something or find something real cheap that I think I could use I have to take it, that is why my craft room looks like a tornado has come through, LOL!

I would so have picked up that marvelous glitter netting! The bows are adorable. I love the idea of decorating an entire Christmas tree with them as Rebecca posted above would be gorgeous.

Maybe you could make one of those banners using strips of the netting!
