Aww, thank you! This was my 1st year experimenting with the mesh ribbon and I am pleased with the way it turned out.

DD17 helped me get a new stand for the tree (the one I had was for huge trees and it was too big) and helped me decorate. Now I just need to find the right angle to take a photo from so you can't see how crooked it still is. lol I'll do it next week! Pretty trees everyone!

Spoiler



I need less spoiled kids or a bigger tree! I let the kids decorate the tree and I have been so good and have not rearranged it..(yet been preoccupied with finals...that green ball is driving me NUTS)..LOL Blue ball right in the middle? Our Texas 2011 Division Champs of course ♥ 2010's is in there some place but it blends in because its red :D

[quote name='tinkrbel']i love the big ornament in #4 looks like a hot air balloon type thing. you got instructions for it?:P We bought some stuff from Hershners years ago but haven't made them yet.


it was from an ornament kit, many years ago. (As were most of the ornaments). Keep and eye on Ebay...I see one pop up every now and then.

All the trees are so pretty! TyreeJames' blue and and silver is very elegant. And I like Shugga's too....the small bulbs and glitter snowflakes really set it off. (Gotta enlarge the thumbshot to really appreciate that tree!)

Maybe a bigger tree but it looks lovely and I love the overflow and piles (and piles) of gifts. Where did you get the sign ornaments? They add something extra to the tree :)

Not very crafty? LOL...did you buy that bow made or did it magically turn itself into that beautiful bow after following directions?

The bow is beautiful. I need something like that for a giant present, not a tree. Will look it up on youtube.

Thanks. I made it. I`m not very crafty but can follow directions. LOL. Here is the link to how to make the bow. I did make an extra 4 loops in one color to make mine little fluffier.

I haven't attempted it BUT the video makes it look pretty foolproof. If we buy some red ribbon in after holiday sales or some blue ornaments this year we should be good. Not sure why we bought a 10ft roll of blue ribbon if we don't have anything to match it really:P

It was really easy with the help of the video. :) I used two 10ft rolls for mine. Going to try to catch some red, green and zebra print ribbon I seen at Sam`s club on sale after Christmas for next year.

Thanks! Unfortunately it's only 24", and it doesn't come bigger. :( It's as cute as can be though, I love it. Really wish it was bigger. I went ahead and bought it last week anyway, "just to see", but yeah, way too small. :(
So now I've thinking about how to make it work. Cut it out and glue on bigger one? Put plain white around tree and this on top?
I just don't understand why they didn't just make a big one too. Unless I just missed it... I've looked at 3 Kohl's for it, plus online. Maybe next year... :)

Sorry. I thought it seemed small but thought I must just be nuts.

My mom's bff is on the hunt for a red tree topper now. This lady always decides last minute she needs something. She told me she bought her skirt at Kohls so I went looking for matching topper and found this instead:P I don't know what she does to her stuff. She has a beautiful boxed set of ornaments from Target 75% or 90% several years ago, I have no idea how she's put it up for years now but Suddenly has no topper to match.

Loving all of the pictures. I thought I went overboard at Christmas with gifts for my DD, but looking at these trees, I guess not. :D

Oh no problem, I appreciate you thinking of me! :) And I thought the same thing, maybe it won't be too bad, so that's why I ordered it. I've got some small trees I can put out somewhere and use it for that at least! :)

I'll keep my eyes out for a red tree topper!

Oh, I wouldn't bother. That lady is so picky it's usually a waste of time :P I try but maybe 8 times out of 10 something is not to her liking.

First year for the white tree. I got the ice skater ornaments on clearance last year & went to 6 stores yesterday to find the plain silver balls, they had every color except silver. Not sure if we need more ornaments or not. My son is not thrilled with the ice skating theme of the tree this year.
