I’m wrapping up this week’s Festival of Trees with a sparkling trio of Golden, Mesh Ribbon Trees. If you’re on board with trendy touches of gold, you might like these golden, tabletop Christmas trees as much as I do. Ever since I made my Candy Corn Cones, I’ve fallen in love with this flexible tubing. It’s so easy to use, and I have many more ideas for it! I hope you’ll add these Golden Mesh Ribbon Trees to your holiday craft list – in just an hour, you can have all three wrapped up and ready to display!
To make Golden, Mesh Ribbon Trees, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: Cones in size of your choice (I used 12”, 9” and 6” cones)
- Flexible tubing ribbon, one package each in white and gold
- Gold trim (I used a golden star trim)
- Gold star tree toppers (I painted mine gold)
- Low-temp glue gun
- Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins
To make Golden, Mesh Ribbon Christmas Trees:
1. White, 12” cone: Squeeze a small amount of little low-temp adhesive around the cone. Wrap the white, flexible ribbon around the base of the cone, and then continue gluing and wrapping the plastic tube around the cone. If needed, use straight pins to temporarily hold the tubing in place.
2. At the top, spiral the white deco tubing around the top of the cone, and glue and pin in place. Once the glue is set, remove your pins.
3. Optional: Wrap ribbon, gold trim, or other embellishments around the cones.
4. Gold, 6” cone: Follow Steps 1 & 2 above to wrap the 6” cone in the gold tubing.
5. White & Gold, 9” cone: Following Steps 1 & 2 above, wrap both colors of mesh tubing around the cone simultaneously. Pin and glue in place as you wrap the mesh tubing around the cone.
6. Top each cone with a gold star.

Don’t forget about this week’s giveaway! As we gear up for the holidays, we could all use a little more cash and creative inspiration, right? I am giving away a $50 craft store gift card, along with a collection of 20 craft magazines and project books. This is an awesome assortment of books and magazines! A lot of the magazines are one-of-a-kind and no longer published. Many of these titles are older, but they’re still brimming with great ideas.
I’m also going to draw five names to receive a copy of Christmas Ideas magazine!
If you’d like a chance to win, be sure to visit each of the trees I’ve shared during the Festival of Trees and leave a comment. Every comment will serve as an entry, and the winners will be chosen at random (just one entry per day, please). Comments will close at midnight on Sunday, November 22 and I’ll announce the winner on Tuesday, November 24.
**Please note: the giveaway is closed.**
Thank you for joining in the Festival of Trees this week.
