I used glitter tulle for some Halloween hair do-dads (they weren't really bows). Some of the glitter did come off but it wasn't really annoying enough to do anything about it.

If it's any consolation I don't see any traces of it now and it's not like I'm a world class housekeeper. It just vanishes over time.

If it really bothers you I'd try some sort of spray adhesive; but that will only do so much and it will increase the cost of your project.

BTW, is that a bow in the second pic? Actually it looks like 4 bows? Is that meant to be worn or is that to decorate the gift box?

I'm guessing you don't live in the North East. We've got another storm warning and it looks like school will probably be cancelled again tomorrow.

I've only made one and it was much more time consuming than I expected.

I have never bought the glitter tulle, but I have bought 'shimmer' and it doesn't shed everywhere. maybee you could take a sticky lint roller to it and at least get some of the excess off?

I just made my tutu from glitter tulle and shimmer...anyways I also live in Texas smack dab in the middle, I wouldn't do mine outside just cause its ALWAYS windy here!! I just use my kirby to vacuum it up then I have to shower because its all over me! If you want it to stay on the tulle try hair spray possibly!! HTH
