How To Make a Bed Crown With a Planter & Link PartyI'm so sorry that it has taken me so long to post this tutorial on how to make a bed crown from a wire planter! I had a bunch of requests for one and I kept forgetting to put it up. Sorry!
I bought a black planter that you are supposed to mount to a wall. It was after the summer so I think I paid $5 for it. I pulled out the coco liner and spray painted it white. I measured how much tulle I would need for the length and drape I wanted and cut two pieces that each measured that amount. I eyeballed it to be honest.
Gather the tulle together. It makes it easier to work with. Try to separate it into 3 sections.
Stitch a few basting stitches through each section to hold the tulle together. This will make it easier to attach to the planter.
Turn the planter upside down so the opening is at the bottom. Hot glue each of your bundled sections to the planter on the inside of the opening on one half of the planter. I glued mine at the joint where the vertical and horizontal planter wires met.
Repeat on the other half with the second piece of tulle that you bundled and sewed as you did with the first one. Then hot glue the rest of the tulle to the opening rim on the inside.
Tie the tulle to keep it out of your way while you apply the trim.
Lay the ribbon on your table and lay the flat side of the planter top of it. Hot glue the ribbon starting on the back and wrapping to the front.
I found it much easier to apply the more narrow trims starting from the middle of the dome of the planter and then let gravity make it easy to glue the rest down flat.
I used extra trim to make tie backs.
Hang with anchors and screws.
And now for the link party!!
