“Deco Mesh Christmas Door Wreath”


Do you like Deco Mesh? Did you like it when you first laid your eyes on it?  Well, I have to be honest here… I did not.

I was at my favorite supplier’s warehouse over five years ago, when the owner insisted I follow him to look at something he was obviously VERY proud of.  We walked down a long aisle, and as we turned the corner, my eyes were caught by aisle after aisle where tall boxes were filled with rolls of beautiful spring and summer colors.

Now, if you know me at all, you KNOW I LOVE color!  I believe there was every color imaginable!  This supplier trusts me and always asks my opinion of everything that is new and different. But when I saw what was made from these beautiful rolls of colorful mesh material.  It was a wreath hanging above the boxes made out of Deco Mesh!  It was ‘cute’, it was certainly different, but it didn’t do a thing for me.

In reality, I had experienced that very same response to many new, ‘hot’ items released many times before.  This was when I was searching up and down the halls of the Atlanta gift market.  And, I do have to say that after the second year of seeing that newest, trendiest, and hottest new item, I grew a little more and more interested in purchasing and trying them out. That is exactly what happened with me and Deco Mesh.

When I went back to this same vendor for the second year, I broke down and purchased several rolls.  I made some Deco Mesh wreaths, including one for myself and hung it on my front door.  I have to admit, I got more compliments concerning that large, colorful, poofy wreath than I ever have before.  It was bright, bold, and really shown and glittered on my front door! If you have guessed by now that I LOVE Deco Mesh, then you’re certainly right!  It is eye-catching, it is fun, and I love making wreaths with it!  And… it is now the HOTTEST, NEWEST, TRENDY THING THAT HAS HIT THE FLORAL DESIGN WORLD SINCE 1981!!


Just What is Deco Mesh?

That’s a very good question!  One that I get asked over and over.

Deco Mesh, also known as geo mesh or poly mesh is a durable and waterproof fabric/mesh.  It will hold its shape inside and outside — even in the rain, wind and snow!  Now, that really is something to be excited about since so many want to hang wreaths outside, and have not been able to accomplish that too well up until now!  (I do want to add a note of caution here, if you purchase the cheaper deco mesh trying to save money, it will not hold up.)

Deco Mesh comes in many sizes, colors, finishes and textures.  I have used it on Christmas door wreaths, Christmas trees, mailbox covers, mantles, garlands, and so much more.  I filmed a video of me designing an entire Christmas tree that was totally deco mesh and I didn’t even bother to pull my ornaments down from the attic.

There are so many different styles and widths.  I suppose the most usual widths are 2 1/2 inches to 10 inches to 21 inches. Then you have work wreaths which are SO very easy to tie your mesh into.  I would use the same color as your wide mesh – probably the 18 or 21 inch size.  These work forms are light weight, very inexpensive, and have wired ropes attached to them so you can twist these around your mesh. I always use many different ribbons from a small to large width and with different patterns such as stripes, plaid, or polka dots.

Using all of these together is SO much fun!  This is where you can really let your own personality shine through! Personally, for Christmas I love the ones which have metallic threads running through them.  Now, these rolls are a little more expensive, but they are worth it because the mesh is thicker, and seems to hold up better.  It also seems to not fade too much in the sunshine.
