Deco Mesh Wreath

Someday I want to have Holiday decorations that are all natural greens and berries in a Pottery Barn-esque style.

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!

  1. I love this! what a great looking front door :) It's B E A U T I F U L !!
    I also love the paint color on your front door! what brand paint is it? and what color is it?

    1. Thank you so much!
      For the front door, unfortunately I have no idea what colour it was… it's part of my ongoing love/hate with my front door. I've since painted it black, so I can't even colour match it for you. Sorry about that!

  2. Any suggestions or tutorial on how to do mesh around the door? Thanks!

    1. Super-easy! I'll put that on my "to-do on the blog" list for next Christmas - but for now, buy the faux garland that you'd hang around a door - then just bulk up poofs of the deco mesh and secure them in place with the little wire branches. The branches will act like pipe cleaners holding them in place! Now's a great time to pick all of the supplies up on sale too!
