Has anyone tried this yet? I did, and it is very forgiving.Thumb of 2012-11-23/NisiNJ/78eacc

Another one. I made them to sell at local craft fairs. Other people had them for sale, and people were buying them. I sold one at each of the fairs I participated in (that's two so far). I had other things for sale, too; was just trying this to see if anyone would buy the Deco Mesh wreaths.

Here's another one. Some other crafters add more decorations; some had less. I made the mistake of buying the glittered picks, and it snows glitter. I store them in giant leaf garbage bags to catch the glitter inside.

And a third. The mesh is cheapest at AC Moore, where it is sometimes on sale for $5 per roll. One roll will fill a wreath. Then I bought the wreath form from Michaels for $2.10 after the 40% coupon. The mesh is attached with pipe cleaners. I just came home from Black Friday sales stocking up on...shatterproof ornaments. Have to keep the expenses down.

I am not good at crafting. I see the beautiful wreaths in the other threads of this forum and...well, I agonize for several minutes over each ornament placement. I just don't have "the eye." But the mesh is forgiving--all you have to do is make the loops even by measuring out the same amount of mesh for each loop. Instructions are all over You Tube, but I bit the bullet and purchased an instructional e-book.

Natineah:

Thank you. Blue is calming, like the sea, and turquoise is my favorite color. Someone at a craft fair actually bought that wreath (yay! a sale!) and said it would contrast nicely against her front door, which is dark.

One of the youtube videos demonstrates how you can add a light string by simply shoving a bunch of the little mini bulbs into each loop, which traps them inside. Then you move on further down the string and push a few more into the next loop, and so on.
