Default Tulle Pom Wands

I'd like to try to make some of the tulle princess/fairy/wishing wands.

Basically it is a large pom pom of tulle on the end of a wooden dowel. They are decorated with ribbon streamers in some cases.

I've seen some lovely pictures of some that a few ladies on the threads have done and I've also seen some fuller, larger versions on etsy, but I cannot figure out how the tulle poof (pouf, puff, pom, etc.) stays on the dowel.

Is it attached with hardware (like the ribbon wands)? Is it hot glued?

Those of you who have attached things to dowels, how do you do it (other than the knotted ribbon tied to eye screws)?

Thank you!

removing picture. I don't have permission to post so I want to take it down just in case the owner doesn't want it up (I've not been contacted).

I also thought those were adorable and tried making some. The first ones, I just cut numerous squares of tulle, found the center, gathered tightly with thread and tied. (Much as you would with a pom-pom) After separating the layers to create the fullness, I trimmed the ’corners’ to make the ball shape. The next one I made, I cut the tulle into circles, stitched through the center area several times, then cut thru all layers to about one-half inch of the center. Then I separated, turned and twisted. I really prefer cutting into circles to start.

For attaching it to the dowel, I first sewed a tight ‘sleeve’ of scrap fabric, and slipped the dowel into that. I hand stitched the top and bottom openings. Since I am a big fan of E6000, I applied that to the top end and down the dowel about a half inch to an inch. I separated the tulle in one area to stick the glued dowel into the center of the ball. Then, wrapped some of the tulle to the glued area, tied it in place with thread, added decorative ribbon streamers and fluffed the tulle back into ball shape.

I was uncertain if this would hold the dowel in place, but my granddaughter has played with hers non-stop and it is holding up fine. I will see if she will let me ‘borrow’ it back long enough to take pics. The others I already gave away.

They were fun and easy to make. Mine was fuller that the one shown here, but not as full as the ones at whimsywendy.

I just stacked the squares of tulle, pinned them together in the center, found the closest size bowl to fit within the edges, drew around the bowl, added a few more straight pins closer to the edges and cut.
