Taping Tulle

Post  CapeCoddess on 6/14/2013, 2:50 pm

Someone on the forum once posted that if their tulle gets a hole in it or ripped, they tape it.  Does anyone remember that post?  I can't remember what type of tape is used that would weather well... 

Any ideas?

I know we have used tape on ours.....we have used duct tape and blue paint tape and so far its been fine Smile....we use the tape on top of the hole and then underneath the hole so the tape sticks together.....

happy gardening

I was thinking duct tape, top and bottom.  Especially now that it comes on all those pretty patterns and colors. 

Thanks, Rose!Smile

Duct tape top and bottom kind of works but if it gets hot enough (we're in the mid-nineties), it starts peeling off itself.  It worked okay when it was cooler.  We tried doing just the top first and that peeled off before we got inside the house.  We also tried blue tape (top and bottom) and it didn't work well at all here in Texas (between heat and wind.)

I had a ton of alligator style clips from our office supplies (we have our own business) and I just pinch the tulle and clip it.  Easy and it works well.
