But I have kids and let's face it - Christmas is really about them.
So, for as long as they'll enjoy it, I go loud, colourful and cartoony.
My front door is no exception.
I needed a big, puffy wreath that would beckon Santa to come hither to our house.
Enter; Deco Mesh. (aka, micro mesh, poly mesh, poly deco mesh)
I found a great tutorial on how to make your own - it takes no time at all and the results are fantastic!
I made my wreath last year and I think the mesh was about $12 a roll? For the wreath you'll need one roll (of each colour), and for the door garland 2 or 3 rolls (of each colour).
I "beefed" it up a bit by adding dollar store decorations and ribbon (just added with hot glue).
I think all total, I came in around $100 for the wreath and the garland - but that includes the wreath form and the pine garland that I wrapped the mesh into.
I also strung lights in the door garland, so that contributed to the cost as well.
It was easy and fun - and I don't think Santa could miss it!
Have a great one!
