6. Take the 1” wide strip of tulle and wrap the base of your comb, going around a couple of times between the teeth of the comb. Knot the last loop. Cut off extra.

8. Stitch the thread of the gathered tulle to the tulle on the comb. Trim down tulle seam allowance edge if it’s sticking up above comb base.
