Mesh Christmas Tree

So while i was at my sisters house during Thanksgiving we did so much fun stuff!  Here is one of the crafts i got to help her with! Isn't this tree a cutie?  And it's the perfect size for the middle of her kitchen table - on the lazy Susan....i LOVE lazy Susan's especially on kitchen tables ;) 




So would you like to make one? Here's how we made hers!
These are the only 3 things you'll need (and decorations...if you want)



The Mesh Ribbon we used was 2 1/2" wide, if you've never used mesh ribbon, don't be afraid you can't mess up while using it -it's very forgiving!


This foam piece for the core of the tree


And Greening Pins.


What we did was so simple we unrolled the mesh ribbon a little at a time and then twisted it....


Here's a closer look at the twist..kind of looks like a ringlet...haha


After twisting just pin it with the greening pin, keep twisting and pining all the way around and work your way up...


Make sure to start out wider at the bottom and get more narrow as you reach the top.


And in the end you'll have the cutest little tree ever! I just love little Christmas trees!


Then go ahead and get to decorating the most fun part right?

And ta-da! Look how awesome that turned out!


Right now I'm wishing this was my kitchen table!




Have Fun!

  10. That looks so great! Love it!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering to win "The Help" giveaway! Chrismas Story is a great movie! I love sledding as well.. granted ours is normally on ice so quite painful when you crash at the bottom, but so worth it. Ha. Have a great day and good luck!!

  40. What is the color name of that green ribbon ? I cant find any that looks good. I ordered some, just got it and its too LIME. :( Can you suggest where to find the darker, more realistic tree green ? Thank you so much for sharing your talent !
