Rolls of deco mesh (a.k.a. geo mesh). I usually use them straight off the spool without cutting them but out tree is hard to attach them to so I used strips ranging from 3 ft to 6 ft.
The tree with the mesh only
Next was the wired ribbon which looks a bit like web (a.k.a. fish net)

Next are ball type ornaments then followed by individual ornaments
It's up! Because it's a beach theme I used a straw beach hat instead of a star and a beach towel instead of a tree skirt - I later rethink them.

I found, on sale, a star made of driftwood so I replaced the hat. I think when the season is over I will white wash it a bit to look more like that grey faded driftwood and I will add some sparkle to it. It's a bit dark for my taste.
I also changed out the beach towel to a lighter colored one but am still going to look through my fabric stash for something that will pass as sand.
So, that's Christmas tree 2017 for home! Next post I will share the office tree that I decorated.
