A new Holiday tree

I have from time to time used the netting that comes on fruit, veggies and turkeys for mundane things like scrubbers, or nets in my altered mermaid collages. But this particular turkey bag just spoke to me. Told me I needed to use some vintage buttons and a cone made of a cereal box to make something special to go with my new large Putz style house.

Happy Holidays friends and thanks for stopping by to see me and my upcycled tree.

Wow, that is gorgeous!! I'd never think to do something like that. And if I did, lol, it wouldn't look like that!

These ARE gorgeous! It never would have occurred to me. And buttons! I am a button collector so anything with buttons is wonderful.
Wonderful holiday decor!

Oooh, I like this! I think if I combine your tutorial over the top of the crepe paper tree tutorial, add loads vintage buttons.... yes, and glitter is also calling me.... GREAT idea!
