It's rather jarring to think that Christmas will be here before you know it. This time of year it seems as though the days fly by so quickly. In a little over a month, we'll be unpacking all the gloriously festive decorations we've lovingly tucked away. I honestly do not believe there is such a thing as ‘too many Christmas decorations.’ My motto is, "The more, the merrier!"
When I came across this incredible DIY, it instantly made me feel more ready than ever for this jolly season. I love experimenting with new color schemes, and this particular project is ideal for any you have in mind! You can customize it to your personal preference, resulting in a yard decoration that will make your neighbors green (and red) with envy! Check out the directions, below, to see just how to make these beautiful creations.
To make these festive little trees, you'll need a tomato cage, 21" deco mesh, pipe cleaners to match deco mesh, indoor/outdoor Christmas lights, ornaments, and Poinsettia clips.
Set your tomato cage bottom-side up. Run your Christmas lights up one side of the tree and down another. Do this once more to ensure that each "leg" of the cage has a strand of lights on it. Finish the lights with one strand hanging free, down in the center of the cage.
Grab your deco mesh and bunch it up at the end. Starting at the bottom, use a pipe cleaner to attach the bunch to one of the legs.
Next, move the mesh down about one foot and grab another bunch.
Using another pipe cleaner, attach this bunch to the next tier of the cage. Check out the following page to see the rest of the tutorial!
