Every hostess needs a party-perfect hairpiece, like this black-and-gold tulle accent.

Materials Needed:

  • 1/2 yard of glittery tulle
  • matching thread
  • sewing needle
  • a small hair comb

Cut Tulle

Cut three 4-inch-wide pieces of tulle. Each piece should measure 4 inches by 1/2 yard.

Cutting Black Tulle

Cutting Black Tulle

For the hair comb, cut three 4-inch-wide pieces of tulle. Each piece should measure 4 inches by 1/2 yard.

Stitch Tulle

On one 4-inch-wide piece, make wide stitches down the long side of the fabric 1/4 inch from the edge. Pull the thread taut to bunch up the fabric along the long edge. Knot the thread and cut off the excess. Repeat on the other two 4-inch-wide pieces.

Attach Tulle to Comb

Line up the bunched edge of one fabric piece with the comb edge. Use the needle and thread to attach the fabric to the comb by stitching in between the teeth of the comb.

Tip: Don't worry about getting the stitching perfect; because the thread matches the fabric, it will be hidden in between the fabric bunches. Just stitch until the fabric piece is attached securely to the comb.

Repeat with the remaining two bunched fabric pieces. Knot thread and cut off excess.

Wear and Enjoy

Fluff out the fabric and place in your hair for a fun party accessory, or make several combs and give them out as wearable party favors.
