Now, don’t start getting overwhelmed, as it’s really not a difficult task, especially once you really get the hang of the pattern down.
There are even different design options for decorating your Christmas tree with mesh so you can use the one that comes easiest to you.
How To Decorate Your Christmas Tree With Mesh
As I mentioned there are a few different ways that you can use deco mesh to decorate your Christmas tree. It all depends on what style you want as well as how much time and patience you have.
To start you will need a roll (or two) of your decorative mesh in your chosen color or design
For a basic 7 foot Christmas tree you will need 2 rolls of the mesh. If you are unsure how much you will need check out my post on determining how much garland you need for a Christmas tree to help you out.
The deco mesh comes in different sizes, and it is up to you what size you choose.
If you want more of the mesh to be seen you may want to go with at least a 21 inch roll. On the other hand if you want more of natural incorporating of the mesh into the tree, you could go with more of a deco mesh ribbon that is only 10 inches.
Directions For Decorating Your Christmas Tree Using Deco Mesh
***Be sure to watch the video included below for visual instructions as well***
~Gather the mesh at the end and attach it to the top of your tree by wrapping a branch around it to secure it in place. For best placement start the mesh slightly below where the tree topper will sit.
~Slide your hand down the mesh to form sort of a looser “poof” to the mesh and then again secure it by wrapping a branch around the mesh. You want the branches that secure the mesh to be inner branches for the best look and to sort of hide the securing of the mesh.
~Continue doing this down the tree making the mesh “poofs” all around the same size. This is when you sort of have free range with your style as you can make the mesh go in a diagonal pattern down the tree or you can have it go straight down. For something a bit different you can even have it wrap all the way around the tree instead of having it go vertical.
~Once you get to the bottom of the tree, cut the mesh and simply push the mesh into the bottom branches to hide the end.
~Repeat the same process, evenly spacing the mesh garlands out until you have covered your entire tree.
Here is an easy-to-follow video that lays out each step of the directions for you.
Once you have finishes decorating your tree with deco mesh you have a few different options. You can use a wire ribbon to go over the mesh or even beside it for more decoration or you can simply just start adding your ornaments onto the tree.
Alternative Method For Using Deco Mesh To Decorate A Christmas Tree
If the above method for decorating isn’t for you, there is another way that you can go about using the mesh to decorate your tree and still get beautiful results.
Cut your mesh into pieces that are approximately 12-16 inches long.
You are going to follow the same sort of pattern as above, securing the mesh with branches and making sort of poofs that stand in and out of the tree. But instead of having to wrap around or down the whole tree, you can simply use the pieces to fill in spots where you want the mesh peaking out.
This gives you more of a whimsical look rather than a perfectly placed appearance. You could even use all types different mesh sizes and colors for a certain theme to give you that unique appearance.
The neat thing about using deco mesh to decorate your Christmas tree is that you can style it several different ways from whimsical and fun to really elegant or even natural.
The mesh just makes a great alternative to the typical garland or ribbon that you see on other Christmas trees . It may just be what you need for something different for your Christmas tree this year.
