5 Ways to Add Deco Mesh to a Christmas Tree

I am in FULL swing decorating my home for the holidays.  I just love making my home warm and inviting for my family and guests who come to call.  Do you know how to add fun and funky deco mesh to your Christmas tree? Well let me show you how! I've made a few videos giving you FIVE different ways to do just that.  You can choose the method you prefer best; I share on the video my preferred method.  Leave me a comment and tell me which method you prefer.

But first, let me show you my 2012 Christmas tree for my family den. I went with a deep red/burgundy and gold theme this year.




You can tell I am very subtle this year with the deco mesh in my tree. That is because I found an amazing red ribbon with gold damask print I had to incorporate but I like the shimmer the mesh gives off as it reflects the warm Christmas lights.



You can see I used more deco mesh in my garland on my fireplace. I ran out of the fancy, more expensive red and gold ribbon but the gold and red mesh matches enough. I used the black and white checker ribbon also on my fireplace garland to tie the two together.



So as promised here are the videos....

Add Deco Mesh to Christmas Tree Part 1: 

Attach mesh to an artificial garland and add it to the tree either vertically or wrap around your tree.




Add Deco Mesh to Christmas Tree Part 2: 

Attach mesh to the Christmas tree in one continuous piece weaving in and out and around your tree.




Add Deco Mesh to Christmas Tree Part 3:

Cut 20" long pieces and place inside your tree at different locations giving the illusion of one continuous piece.




Add Deco Mesh to Christmas Tree Part 4: 

Cut 12" long pieces and twist onto branches of your tree for a more whimsical look.




I hope you have a wonderful time decorating for the holidays! I know your family and friends will be amazed when they see your new decorated tree!
