First wrap the tulle around the book 20 times or so.
Then cut your tulle straight down the middle on one side. Carefully turn the book over and cut down the middle on the other side.
So you’ll have a pile of squares.
Wrap a rubber band around the middle.
Then you are going to pull out all the individual tulle pieces to make your tulle ball. Similar to the method used for the tissue paper pom poms. So it will look like this when you’re finished fluffing.
For your dowel rod you cut it down to the length you want (if needed) around 10″ or so. And wrap it with your ribbon of choice securing it with hot glue every so often as you wrap.
Now you are ready to attach it to your tulle ball. I forgot to get a picture of this part but you attach it using the ends of the ribbon that you covered your rubber band with. Add a good bit of hot glue to the top of the dowel rod and put it right in between the two ribbon pieces. Then wrap the ribbon around the top of the dowel rod securing with hot glue. Tie a bow around the top to hide where they connect.
