As the saying goes..."Everything is Bigger in Texas"!
Well that saying most certainly applies to holiday decor and ever since I first say a Deco Mesh Garland on fabulous home back in Texas, I have wanted one for myself!
I looked a up a few Deco Mesh Wreath tutorials and sort of morphed what I saw there into the garland pictured above.
What I used:
- 3 Rolls of Deco Mesh (p.s. Fall Deco Mesh in on sale at Joann's for $3.99 a roll right now! this deal was too good to pass up because it is usually $12-15 a roll!)
- 2 Green Christmas Garlands (again bought on sale...90% post Christmas Hobby Lobby find!)
- Twist Ties (I used this brand from Joanns and it was super handy!)
- Unroll your mesh, gather the mesh about 1/2 a foot to a foot from the end of the roll, pinch the edges together and secure with a twist tie.
- Take the excess ends of your twist tie and secure the mesh to the Christmas garland covering as much of the garland as you can. I was not worried too much about coverage at this point because I was using 2 more rolls of mesh.
- Repeat the above process moving up the mesh about a foot at a time (you can move further if you want a bigger poof). Where you tie it to the garland will determine how big your poofs are.
- To add more volume, repeat the process with subsequent rolls of mesh, I used 3 in 3 different colors. As you tie to the garland, just work to cover all of the exposed green garland.
- I used 9 cup hooks like this around the door to hook it on and keep it secure in the wind. I used more twist ties on the top hooks for extra security.
Your front door will, for sure, be the talk of the block!
