Why Opt for a Tulle Bow?

Tulle bows bring a soft, feminine quality to gift wrapping that traditional ribbons can’t quite match.

Their sheer, lightweight texture creates volume and elegance without overwhelming the gift itself.

Plus, working with tulle is forgiving and versatile, making it an ideal choice for DIY enthusiasts of all skill levels.

Supplies You’ll Need to Make a Tulle Bow

  • Soft tulle fabric (in a color that complements your chocolate box, such as pink, red, or white)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Chocolate box (your choice of size and style) mine is from Dollar Tree
  • Bling Embellishment (optional, for the center of the bow)

How to Make a Tulle Bow

Perfect for Valentine’s Day, a tulle bow adds a romantic flair that complements the sweetness of a box of chocolates beautifully.

Step One: Cutting the Tulle

Measure and cut a length of tulle approximately 3 to 6 feet long, depending on the size of your bow and the chocolate box.

For a fuller bow, consider using a longer piece of tulle. The width of the fabric typically ranges from 6 to 12 inches, suitable for most bow sizes.

Step Two: Forming the Bow

  • With your four fingers facing up, lay the tulle flat holding it down with your thumb as shown.
  • Continue looping the tulle loosely around your fingers, creating as many loops as desired for fullness.
  • Once you’ve wrapped all of the tulle around your fingers, secure the center with a separate piece of the tulle tied tightly in a knot. This extra piece of tulle can also create a base to attach the bow to the chocolate box.
  • Using scissors cut the tulle loops in the center opposite of where it is tied in a knot. See below.
  • Now you can fluff the tulle bow to even it out. Trim it down by gathering it in your hand and using the scissors if you prefer a smaller bow.

Step Three: Attaching the Bow to Your Chocolate Box

Place the completed tulle bow atop your Valentine’s Day box of chocolates. You can tie the bow around it or use a hot glue gun for a more permanent attachment, being careful not to damage the box or its contents.
