An Alternative To Tulle

There was a time early last year wherein I was going crazy finding tulle in our area.  I was not exactly into it but it became a fad in the paper crafting world that I decided to find and buy.  I found fabric stores that do sell tulle but it was only in black.  I contacted a friend from Multiply site who lives in Vienna and that in one of their stores tulle was available for a very cheap price.  Unfortunately I was too late ... the store doesn't sell it anymore and they have no idea when they're gonna have it again. Out of frustration, I tried searching on-line stores in Sweden but no luck!  Days, weeks, and months passed by and I still have no tulle at all.  I gave up and just decided to try finding tulle some other day. 


One day while I was cleaning the smallest storage room down the basement, I came across some old curtains way back when I was still living in the Philippines.  Being an adventurous crafter I decided to try one of the curtains as my alternative to tulle.

I did this project last September 2010 and totally forgot about it.  Yes, I was able to find all the colors of tulle available in one fabric store here last October 2010 and I bought yards of each color they have.



Here's the old curtain ....

cut into circles (free-hand) .....

added stickles around .....let dry .....
