Have you tried using thumbtacks? Or if there's too much tulle to be supported by thumbtacks, perhaps wide-headed mails would work.

Most people would use clear pushpins or even screw-in tiny cup hooks because tulle is so light. Use larger cup hooks if you plan on also hanging tiny LED Christmas lights in it. If you plan on using any lights (even low wattage lights) first spray the tulle with a fire protectant spray (make for Christmas trees & paper products).

As a silk flower wedding designer and wedding planner who has done this type of installation many times here is what I do.

If the ceiling is a tile drop ceiling: You can use grid clamp hooks and large "S" hooks. These can be found on-line or at many home improvement stores. If you are using bolt tulle 45"+ wide make sure to use a large "S" hook.


If the ceiling is not a drop ceiling: Use 2- 3 MM 5lb or more removal hooks. Place them spaced apart 6" approximately parallel to one another. Then use heavy gauge clear fishing twine to create a large loop between the 2 hooks. String tulle through the loop.

How do you measure for how much tulle you would need to hang from the ceiling to form a swag several times? How do you hang it?
