The great thing about Deco Mesh is that it holds its shape and can withstand the outdoor elements - rain and sun. (No fading!)
So I started making a Fall wreath. I used a 21'' Poly Mesh roll of brown and orange stripe and a 10'' roll of gold. For my first wreath I used a Styrofoam wreath and floral pins to attach the mesh. I used some olive green ribbon for bows and a few fall picks to decorate the wreath.
I also added a string of battery powered lights. I think my first Deco Mesh wreath turned out nice. Using the styrofiam wreath I had to use more mesh to cover it and make it look full. I decided to keep researching to find a better/easier way to make things with Deco Mesh.
I found the Mardi Gras Outlet's online videos which inspired me to make a Christmas wreath and garland.

For my Christmas Wreath I used a 21" Poly Mesh roll in Red, green and white stripe, a 10" roll in green and a 2.5" red ribbon.
I used small red, green, and white ornaments as accents and a strand of white battery operated lights. I think it turned out great! I can't wait to decorate my porch for the holidays!
