Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert, and owner of Events by Fabulous. Today, I'm gonna teach you how to make a fabulously themed black and white Christmas tree, and it's so easy with just a couple of steps you can create something that looks just as fabulous as this. So, what's so incredible about this tree? It's so easy, you actually can make this tree in less than 20 minutes on your own time, and the secret to that is by using extra large, very big ornaments. And other trees, you know, you're getting in there, you're doing small little details. This tree, all of the items on it are taking up so much space, and they're so va-va-voom that really it's only a couple simple steps to put these larger more dramatic piece on there, but what you get is such a stunning art piece in itself. So we're gonna start with the black decorative mesh, which is this merchandise right here. It's super simple to put on. You're literally just gonna scrunch and attach it to a branch, and then wrap it around the tree, scrunch, attach it to the branch, and you'll see here that I did almost an s-shape pattern down the front of the tree. You want to do this in sections. Next we're gonna use a ball garland. Don't want to put out a thousand Christmas balls? Just buy one ball garland, and then now you can wrap this around the tree almost like a peppermint candy cane. We're gonna start right here up at the top. We're gonna wrap one garland right here like this on an angle. You'll see that I left space in the mesh specifically to highlight this garland. Next, we're gonna put another one lower, and again follow that curvature. So now we've pretty much occupied the majority of space on the tree. So next we're gonna do the two most important parts, which are the bow details, which I love. Instead of using a star at the top we're gonna use a bow here, and then I've mirrored another one down here just to make two focal points on the tree. And now we're gonna take our black ornaments, and we're just gonna fill in empty spaces. Now what's so great about creating a black and white tree on the white tree is now you can use all black ornaments against the white canvas, and it's just so striking and gorgeous. So we're gonna fill in the black ornaments, as you see here, in any blank spaces, then I've added a couple of these fabulous black feathers just to give a little more va-va-voom to the tree, and last I added a personal touch. Now these are small frames that you can just get anywhere. They cost about two dollars, so it's really a great investment, and I've turned these frames into ornaments. Now how cute is it if you put family pictures or black and white pictures of the holidays, anything like that would really just add that personal touch to the tree, and make it all about you. So, enjoy. This is your black and white fabulous themed holiday tree. I hope you have a fabulous holiday, and that you get to enjoy something like this in your home.
