Tis' the Season!

So, this weekend was kinda busy and sad for a couple of reasons which I'm not ready to even talk about yet. Hasn't sunk in. Soooooooo, I only got my trees up. My parents bought me a white Ty Pennington tree and a container of ornaments from Sears on Black Friday. I will say this...150 for tree-worth it, 260 original price--not worth it. 35 for container of ornaments--not worth it unless on sale; i felt the quality was not worth the retail price.

Since I've been "living on the edge" recently [see last post], I decided to do a "fun" tree for my den. The tree is white with iridescent glitter on it, and the ornaments are bright and fun!!! I couldn't find a tree topper I liked that would go with this color scheme so I improvised with the large peacock ornament from Hobby Lobby. Also, this is my first time to ever work with deco mesh. Don't judge;) ha!
Here's a picture of it lit up
All the ornaments were purchased at Sears, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels

Next year, I plan on having more time to play around with the deco mesh, and I'm hoping to learn how to make those wreaths as well.

Hopefully, y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

The tree looks fantastic! I also spent most of the holiday weekend upset for things that are now no longer happening, so I hope the same happens for you.

I love the deco mesh. I'm by no means great at it, but have figured out how to get a good effect. We only do one tree so I don't have everything all matchy matchy. From the tutorials and experience I've had. You poof then wrap either with the branches (or I use craft wire) poof and wrap poof and wrap. I only twist the wire a time or two so, I can just pull the mesh out easily and reuse again the next year.

It looks great! I tried using ribbon this year, and couldn't get it to look right. I may have to try the mesh kind next year. ;)
