Decorating the home for the biggest holiday of the year is a tradition that we all love. Decorating indoors and outdoors is part of the fun, and from the front door to the living room, kid’s room, bedroom, kitchen – every corner of the home should get our special attention. Isn’t it wonderful to open the door and see the staircase railings wrapped in garlands? Doesn’t the mantlepiece look so much more festive, decorated with glittering lights and ornaments? And isn’t it great to make your own wreaths that will welcome passersby, your neighbors, and visitors? That’s exactly what we shall be talking about – handmade Christmas wreaths.

DIY Christmas wreath crafts are numerous, and you can use anything that you have available – natural materials like fir twigs, pine cones, spruce or eucalyptus, fabric, paper, napkins, beads, tulle, pompoms… the list goes on and on. In general, all that is at home can be useful for creating an attractive wreath. But why make a mesh wreath for Christmas? Deco mesh is airy, lightweight, and very easy to work with. It is also a great choice if you want to decorate on a budget, and the result will exceed all your expectations. Additionally, the wreath can be decorated with paper snowflakes, bows, or any other decorative embellishments.

Another advantage of mesh Christmas wreaths is that the material comes in almost any color. You can choose one or two colors that will complement the rest of your festive decorations. Deco mesh holds its shape perfectly, it is elastic and strong enough to be shaped into different looks.
