Get tulle at the store & follow this effortless idea

Flowers are a lovely way to add color to a room. They bring a sense of nature from the comfort of your home. The softness and femininity add a touch of elegance to an otherwise plain space. Rather than spend money on flowers that will die quickly, try your hand at embroidery. 
This project is just right if you have ever considered trying this needle art. It involves a small area to cover, and you can decide how complex to make the image. Consider making a few pieces in the same motif, such as different types of leaves or flowers. Keep it simple, especially if this is your first attempt at embroidery, and experiment with different stitches ahead of time to know what will work best for each project.

Instructions
1. Cut a piece of tulle from the spool that's long enough to fit in the embroidery hoop. 
2. Put it in the hoop, and trim away any excess.
3. Sketch a design on the tulle with the marker. For the sunflower design in the tutorial, we simply sketched the middle of the flower. 

4. Thread the needle with embroidery floss. Tie a knot at the end of the length of embroidery thread to catch it on the underside of the tulle.

5. Create the design one color at a time using the stitches you choose. For the tutorial's sunflower design, we stitched the bright yellow petals using a lazy daisy stitch tightly around the middle. For the middle circle, we used brown floss and french knots.

6. When you finish with each color or length of floss, tie a knot in the back and trim it.
