Hey!! I have finally finished my tree today, I have been slacking! I couldn't find the mesh anywhere until I went to Michael's yesterday and they had some. I have never seen it there, so I bought a bunch just to make sure I had enough. Join me and I will take you through the process of how I decorated the tree.
Here is the tree before I have done anything to it. Last year my parents gave us this tree that they had bought the year before.
I used one roll of gold and one roll of red.
I started at the top of the tree and scrunched the mesh going down the tree and just securing it on the tree branches.
The red is appearing orange-y in these pictures but it is more of a true red.
After adding the mesh I added all of the ornaments that I wanted to put on the tree. I would love to add some more ornaments to it to make it really full, but I'm happy with the way that it turned out. Maybe I will add more next year.
Instead of doing a ribbon bow for the top I did a mesh bow. I made it the same way you would make a regular bow.
Next I added a bunch of red and gold picks in and around the mesh bow. Here is a picture of the tree all lit up.
Here is a close up of the topper. It is very whimsical and pretty!
A few years back I bought this tree skirt at Hobby Lobby. I love it! It has a muted green color in it so I added some of the same colored ornaments to the tree to tie them in together.
Here is a picture of the tree with the lights off. I have the tree on a timer, it comes on around 5 and stays on til 10. I love the warm glow it gives to the front room.
Well, I hope you enjoyed our Christmas tree! I will be back in a few days with a post of our foyer.
Have a great rest of the week!
