Netting For Garland, Wreaths and Angels...

I bought this netting at Ben Franklin~
 It's called Geo Mesh Poly Ribbon.

I decided to use it as garland on my tree...
I did alot of twisting and scrunching.
Snowmen ornaments can be purchased at Target.

Here's what it looks like on my tree.
I haven't finished decorating the tree but wanted you to see how the mesh looks.
I  should have it all done by the 24th! :)

The video below demonstrates how to make angels out of Geo Mesh~
You can make wreaths with it too.
By the way: That's not me in the video-JUST in case you are wondering.


You could probably use tulle (fabric for making tutu's)
 to get the same results at a better price.

  2. Robin,
    The mesh is so pretty. I saw some versions of it at Craft Warehouse, but decided not to get it this year since I'm not decorating much due to moving. Your tree is going to be fabulous!!
    Blessings,
    Cindy

    Hope you're having a great week so far!♥

  10. Your tree looks beautiful! I know a lot of people put the ribbon on vertically, but I really like the way yours looks. (I wish I could see it in person :D) Our tree is already done, maybe I will try it next year.
    You are so clever!
