I held the tulle in place with hair clips.

Before your gather the tulle cut along the folded edge of your tulle on the 3cm side

Making a hair clip party hat with grosgrain ribbon and tulleYou will need a felt circle about 2.5cm  I used a 20c coin and trimmed our 4cm felt circles.

Glue the felt circle to the base of your hat.  Take your tulle and pull the layers apart to fluff it up.  You can now glue the felt to a hair clip of headband.
