If you’ve only been using deco mesh for making holiday wreaths, look at all the fabulous ways you can use it for decorating a dress form Christmas tree.
These are just a few many images from our Dress Form Christmas Tree board on Pinterest to showcase the vibrancy and flexibility of deco mesh.
The design team at Mannequin Madness has been making dress form Christmas Trees and tutorials since 2013.
And while we occasionally buy deco mesh at the Dollar Tree, our favorite online resource is Paper Mart. They have the most amazing selection of colors, textures, and widths of deco mesh. You can find everything there from glittery deco mesh that is wide enough to to drape the bodice-
To thinner widths that you can use as accents to make a belt or “necklace” for your Dress Form Christmas tree.
One of the many wonderful qualities of deco mesh is that is can be used for decorating inside or outside.
If you are inspired to make a Dress Form Christmas tree after reading this post, we have four styles of Dress Form Christmas Tree tutorials available here. One for every level of crafting skill.
For example our “Bohemian Style” dress form Christmas tree can completed in about an hour. You can make it with live or faux garland. On the one below the bodice is wrapped in deco mesh.
Our Grand Díva Style dress form Christmas Tree tutorial requires more crafting skill because the structure for the skirt is made out of chicken wire.
Please share what you make on our facebook group Crafty Projects with Mannequins.
