Supplies, I am always on the lookout for decomesh sales, so case in point above I purchased the roll of white decomesh back in March. Michael s has a sale on 40% off the 16.99 regularly, 40% off hmmm no brainer and the white can be used for many occassions , so dual purpose. The roll of Red well that is a roll purchased for Christmas, I undecorate and re-roll each season and again this was purchased in October when I was preplanning in my head. Pipe-cleaners, Dollarama and the flags this time it was Michaels but any Dollar Store usually has a great supply ( Hint buy flags now because come close to July 1st they become very tough to find. Wreath Frame was 8.00 at Michael s purchased in April when I was creating my Easter Wreath.
Place your pipe-cleaners evenly around the frame, I use the straight bars as my anchor points so that my wreath remains somewhat in place.
Creating a two to three inch tail I use my pipe cleaner to anchor the mesh to the frame and then I start gathering the mesh into four to six inch sections, anchoring each section to the frame. Hint I always start on the inside and try to create three layers of mesh.
After I have used the entire roll of white mesh, I started twisting the red, anchoring it sporadically through the white, for this Wreath I used approx 1/4 of a normal roll but again you can add as much or as little as you desire, decomesh is all about what you like and what speaks to you.. I grabbed the two Flags and added them to the middle and Voila I have a wreath all set for Canada Day. The bonus of this wreath is if you live in a border town, or have dual citizenship, very easy to add some Blue on the 2nd, switch out the flags and Happy Independence Day, ( or start it early and use the Tri Coloured for Memorial Day, change the Blue and the Flags and then it is Happy Canada Day, and switch back , and now you have a three occasion wreath for pennies.
