Im doing this too! What do you put underneath the tulle when gluing the petals on. Im having a terrible time, as im using a baking tray underneath it, but the tulle gets stuck to the tray and the tulle rips when i ease it off.

I did 1 meter without any problems, but today its not working for me 🙁

Has anyone got any solutions?

Have you tried either of these? 1) use some wax paper underneath, which shouldn’t stick or 2) spray your cookie sheet with a bit of cooking spray?

I haven’t tried it but it is something I might consider

Good luck!

how do you get the runner to lay flat?? I’m halfway done with mine and it’s starting to roll inward

They look really nice.

This might be a dumb question, but is there a reason you used tulle instead of regular fabric?

I am actually planning to do the same exact thing… the white petals over a wide royal blue runner – and for an added touch, I’ll have the shorter width white runner rolled out during the ceremony and the flower girl will throw royal blue petals.

Do you mind if I ask for a few more details?

Regarding the rolling inward… What did you do for a “border”?  Is it better to do this before adding petals?

Yours looks absolutely amazing (!!!!) and much “fuller” than others I’ve seen – approximately how many petals are you using within (let’s say…) a foot or a yard?  How long do you plan to make your runners all together (just curious – I’m not sure how long mine will need to be)?  🙂

Oh… and what’s the best way to transport the finished runners to the ceremony?  Are you rolling it, folding over, just a pile in a box, etc…?

Again – looks so great!!!  You’re off to a great start! 🙂

You’re so thorough!  Thank you for the pic and details!  That will help out a lot when I start mine – hopefully within the next couple weeks!

Another question (sorry so many – I’m just trying to glean from your wisdom)… seeing that you used the hot glue just on the tips, with thin material… what did you do to press the materials together?  I’m hoping your finger tips are okay!

I know it might seem a little late for your project but I have seen another Bee used the roll out weed barrier stuff (I don’t know the name of it).  Cheaper and she said it didn’t roll up……. Hope it helps someone else with the project.
