Deco mesh is quickly becoming a “must have” material to use when making a Dress Form Christmas Tree. It has long been the staple of holiday wreaths, but now this is a new holiday use for it. Check out this gorgeous tree made by Thelma Nicholls of Killean, Texas. (Note: she used this tutorial to help her design it)
The design team at Mannequin Madness has been making dress form Christmas Trees since 2013. The tree below where we wrapped the bodice in deco mesh became our most pinned image on Pinterest.
Deco mesh has become such a popular material for Dress Form Christmas Trees that we created a dedicated section for them on our Dress Form Christmas Tree board on Pinterest.
We have had to turn down many requests to make custom Dress Form Christmas Trees for customers outside our home state of California because the shipping costs are so expensive. So that is why we created tutorials so you can DIY and we sell new and used dress forms.
However, we like to encourage people to shop local and purchase a dress form Christmas tree from a vendor in their area. If you are interested in making them and selling them in your area, please let us know and we will add your contact information in our vendor database to recommend to potential customers.
If you have made a dress form Christmas tree just for your own enjoyment and have used deco mesh, we would love to add it to our Pinterest board. Send us a photo along with your name, city and where you purchased your deco mesh (we like to recommend suppliers). You can either post it below or on our group Facebook Board: Crafty Projects with Mannequins. Happy creating & Happy Holidays!
