home holiday event wedding and DIY decor today I’m gonna show you how to make a
mannequin Christmas tree centerpiece and setup here we go as you guys may know I love paper mache
products especially the paper mache dress form and since it’s Christmas
season I got inspired to make a mannequin Christmas tree centerpiece so
let’s get started with the video alright guys so the very first thing I’m going
to do is draw the silhouette of her top which is going to be a sweetheart line all right so that’s my top you can
barely see it but you can see a little bit and I’m gonna go ahead and paint it
in red the exact name of this acrylic paint is Tuscan red and I chose it
because it’s a deeper red and this is also a glossy finish okay I’m also going
to be using extra fine litter in the color red hang on let me focus there you
go and yes it’s going to be a bit of a messy project but it’s going to be
totally worth it okay alright so I’m just gonna go ahead and start painting
and for those of you who are wondering where I got this lovely lady from this
paper mache dress form I got her from Hobby Lobby she’s originally 1499 but if
you download your 40% coupon from Hobby Lobby you are going to get her for much
less in now while the paint’s still wet I’m
gonna go ahead and sprinkle the glitter over it another alternative to bond the
glitter to the dress will be using my patch you can just wait for the paint to
dry I’ll do my pouch and then add the glitter and here it is beautiful
totally messy but I think still totally worth it and this is totally optional
guys you don’t have to do this step but I think it looks amazing
now I’m going to add a base to my dress form so I can stabilize her better and I
can work with her I’m just going to turn this Dollar Tree goal and I’m just going
to glue her right on top alright guys so now to the good part I’m
very excited for this part I’m going to be making the frame of her skirt which
is going to be out of chicken wire this is craft metal galvanized chicken wire
from Hobby Lobby and I did pay full price for it because I use my coupon on
the dress form since it was higher price but if you’re inclined to it come back
the next day and use the coupon on this you don’t have to buy it the same day
there’s no shame in the hustle okay so hustle up and come back the next day and
then you can get both for 40% off but if you don’t feel like coming back and
doing all of that like me just go ahead and pay full price for it which is not
bad 6:39 it’s not bad for a chicken wire you can also get some at Home Depot but
you will get a bigger role for probably about ten to eleven dollars but you can
use it for other projects and stuff like that but this not bad at all alright so
let me stop talking and let’s start with the frame now I’m going to measure the
amount of wire I’m going to need and I’m going to cut with wire cutters so let me
bring you okay so first I’m going to cut the
height that I need because I have all this extra wire so I say right about
here in that side cut I’m going to start wrapping her around to make sure that I
have enough going around alright so yes this is plenty see well this is actually
perfect let’s measure it so you don’t have to go through all the tests and
trials I just did so you are going to need 30 by 13 all right I did messed up
right there but that’s okay is that right I’ll figure it out it
doesn’t have to be perfect you know what I say what I’m going to do as you can
see there’s a neat line right there of wire and this at the bottom is old
jacked up so I’m going to use the neater part for the top so I can wrap it around
her waist and you’re gonna have to bend some of
these wires at the end as you see right here in order for this to be flat to her
back okay so go ahead and wrap it around and then you can secure it to wire to
wire so just wrap it around to the wire don’t worry if the slices or the cut is
not perfect because once you place the pieces of Garland over it you can make
it as long or short as you would like so I don’t worry about it you can always
cut it if that makes you feel better but to me it will be just the same her dress
is going to consist of branches from this garland this is a 9-foot non-lead
branch garland that I got from Walmart for only 238 very the deal all right so
I cut a little piece of the garland and basically what I’m going to do is grab
one of the branches and I’m going to put it in through one of the holes of the
chicken wire and then I’m just going to twist okay and I’m just going to
continue doing the same all around and I’m going to start from the bottom to
the top and here’s how the button looks like so
far you’re going to notice that there are some ball spots but we are going to
cover that up in a sec so basically in order to cover those all spots what
you’re going to do is grab a branch that you have left over and then you’re going
to pull out individual branches so there you go and then you’re gonna put them
through the chicken wire and then you are going to twist and that’s it okay so
I have filled out all of my cameras and this side is still longer and I think
I’m going to make it a little longer to have a little train to the front yes a
train to the front that’s how I like it not to the back but to the front and
here she is with her side train to the front I love it
I’m going to start decorating now next I’m going to be placing white LED string
lights to my dress and these are from Dollar Tree and they require two
double-a batteries and I’m just going to play some underneath to dress in between
the chicken wire okay so here’s how it looks like with
two string lights which is all I bought you are going to need probably four to
five to fill this up alright if you’re gonna use lighting you don’t have to it
is a pain in the behind trying to get some of them on so you might have to add
some hot glue to keep them in place and I will fix that a little later but for
now this is what it would look like with just two string lights alright so now
I’m going to move on to the ornaments I’m going to be using beautiful
miniature ornaments from Michaels they were all 60% off and everything is 60%
off right now in every store so go ahead and take advantage of it so I didn’t pay
very much for any of these and I’m thinking I’m going to use all of them
but I am Not sure as of yet that doesn’t want to focus there you go
and the only one that I think I may not use hardy Bose because Bose can be a
little cheesy sometimes and I don’t want it to look cheesy I wanted to look
classy lower shell see so I’m gonna pick it up okay so I’m going to start with
dear EPS the ornaments come with a silver string nd packet so what I’m
going to do is tie it up very short cut it with my scissors and then hang it up
on the skirt okay so for some reason I only got one
pack of the white ones hmm which means that I’ll have any in
the back but you get the idea okay get more white or another color but I do
have smaller ornaments in red I have plenty of red now I’m going to be making her eight
belt to break it up a bit right there and this is a silver glitter 3/8 inch
ribbon no particular reason why on this size this is just what I have you can
make it thicker if you would like I made an additional bowl to place it on top of
the other bow to make it a little fluffier and bigger so I managed to find
a brooch by accident while I was looking for the Mod Podge so I added it to the
bowl right here and it looks amazing and then I reminded me that I had extra
strips of rhinestones so I ended up placing that as the
necklace instead of the beads and she looks amazing
