Christmas Tree was on display in the White House when Obama was in office.
All the Dress Form Christmas trees in this post (except for the White House one) are from customers who made them using one of our four styles of Dress Form Christmas Tree digital tutorials. Some of the customers bought the dress form from us as well.
Dress Form Christmas trees are like snowflakes, no two are alike, even when using the same digital tutorial and similar materials. It is like getting a chance to be a fashion designer when you make a Dress Form Christmas tree.

Everyone has a different design aesthetic and unique vision of what they find attractive.
Also certain styles are popular based on the region and ethnicity of the person. Or even the zodiac sign. A lot of my fellow Leo customers love anything with a leopard print
Our customers who live in colder climates buy our wire dress forms to create a display like this one using our tutorial for live garland.
We made our tutorials digital so that people outside of the US can purchase them. Each tutorial has endless variations that you can do to customize it to your design aesthetic.
