My Aunt Cookie showed me how to use Deco Mesh about 4 christmas’s ago and I’ve been hooked every since! Thank you Aunt Cookie! The pop of vibrant color it adds is unmatched. In fact she gifted me some beautiful copper deco mesh and I started collecting ornaments based on that! Now every year we have a copper and gold xmas tree. Its not traditional but thats why I love it! I will do another post on how to decorate your christmas tree with deco mesh, but for now…on with the garland!
Get some decent garland. I always look for garland with at least 2 different types of greenery some berries and pinecones are nice as well. I got this set from Garden Ridge last year after xmas for 50% off!
And now we have 18 foot garland! I attached 2 strings of 100ct white lights at this point.
Then I simply scrunched up the mesh to my desired ‘poofiness’ and yes that’s a technical word! For each poof I simply used a strand of garland to secure the mesh.
