DIY Anthropologie Tulle Tendril Bib

DIY: Anthropologie inspired Tulle Tendril Bib

DIY Anthropologie Tulle Tendril Bib

Today’s DIY is a reader request!  The lovely Lauren sent me this gorgeous Anthropologie Tulle Tendril Bib as an idea for a potential project.  The piece is stunning, but also very expensive.  (And if you couldn’t tell from yesterday’s post, I’m having a major moment with tulle right now.)  Always up for a challenge, I gave the project a whirl.  I’m not going to lie… this one involved a lot of glue and got messy at times, but I think the end result is worth the irritation and mess… I hope you give it a try!


Materials // Where to Buy:  Felt (I used an old sweater that I had felted by putting in the washer) // about a yard of grosgrain ribbon, about 1/4″ wide // 5 brass bezels // some tulle that you will shred up // about 14″ metallic lace trim // rhinestones, both small + large. // not pictured:  E6000 glue // fabric glue




And you are done!

    I think it is quite worth the mess. What a fun and whimsical piece- right in time for all of us who just can’t let go of tulle and rhinestones. Thanks! xo

    You seriously keep topping yourself, Grace. I’ve actually seen (and lusted after) this Anthro piece, so I’m completely head over heels for this!

    I realize I’m 100% biased here, but this is my favorite DIY you’ve done! You keep outdoing yourself, week after week, Grace. I can’t wait to try this out this weekend – thank you so much for taking the necklace of my dreams and making it possible to own!

    Wow, you did such a great job recreating this necklace. It looks so similar! Maybe I’ll make this my weekend project since I have some extra time.
