I’m finally done with Baby Girl’s Nursery, so this is the first of the Nursery DIY posts.
I saw something similar on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. I love anything with tulle in it.
I used two colors with some white to get the mint color I wanted on the canvas.
After painting the canvas, I cut about 25 tulle squares and then cut a sun pattern. I decreased the size with each square to make the layered flower.
Once the flower was complete, I used a thread to pull it together to “bunch” it then sewed on the rhinestone button through the tulle flower and pulled it through the back of the canvas.
I hot glued the bottom side edges of the flower do they wouldn’t droop forward.
You could do a variety of things with this – different colors, fabric choices, and you could even paint a striped or chevron pattern underneath. Lots of ways to fit your Baby Girl nursery and make it your own.

Love this! I'm a sucker for tulle too 🙂
Do you remember what size squares you cut?
It was about 15 inches, I believe. A little smaller than the canvas size.

Could you do a video of this? And how do you get tulle wide enough to do the squares? I really want to make this for my daughters room but I do better when I have a video lol
I hope to someday be techy enough to post videos, lol. Maybe on IG. For the tulle, I cut them in about 15 inch squares for the widest part, and then did smaller ones from there. I hope that helps! The good thing about tulle is that it’s so forgiving and you can play around with it.
Can you elaborate on how you scrunched the rule together? Did you use hot glue or the same colored thread?
Yes, I used similar color thread, although it could be any color if you’re going to put an embellishment on top. I just used a needle to thread it in the middle and pulled on it and then tied it off. It’s pretty easy and doesn’t have to be perfect! Have fun and please share if you make one! 🙂
So let me understand you cut each square into a sun pattern an then started layering them?
Also what size canvas did you use?
Thanks so much
Hi, Jeanne. So sorry for the late reply! I had to take a break from blogging for a bit. Yes, cute them in a sun and turned them. I used a 20×20.
