Deco Mesh Wreath for the 4th of July

I guess I am officially a deco mesh junkie.

Ever since I made this Christmas deco mesh wreath, I’ve had the bug. I made another wreath for Mardi Gras, a red and white deco mesh garland at Christmas too, and now to kick off summer, a Memorial Day red, white, and blue wreath that will carry over to the 4th of July. (See here for instructions to make the  flag banner.)

There could be worse things than a deco mesh fixation with bowsplotion wreaths. Although I will even confess to sneaking photos of random doors with deco mesh on them. And I must have some deco mesh radar on because I have people texting me photos of deco mesh displays they have spotted in stores, which I rarely partake of because I have am loyal to my supplier. Happy to feed my addiction, Mardi Gras Outlet is my enabler. Great prices, super fast delivery, wonderful customer service, and they have way more than JUST my favorite all-weather meshy goodness. I mean really, their name is Mardi Gras Outlet after all, not deco mesh R us.

So when I was cruising their site — as I often do — I happened on this little gem of red, white, and blue deco mesh, I knew it was perfect for the summers patriotic holidays of Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.

    I LOVE your wreath! Funny, I just compared prices for mesh and found the least expensive to be the mardigras site, then saw you used the same! I was wondering, how much mesh did you use on this wreath. I want to make a deco mesh wreath but am not sure how much mesh I will need. Thanks :)

    Hi Crystal! I used just one roll for this wreath. If you want to layer with ribbon, you’ll need 10 yards to match the roll of deco mesh. Good luck!

    Would like to know where you purchase your tubing. The only tubing at Hobby Lobby is pencil thin and not what I’m looking for. Thanks

      Hi Carol. I usually get all my deco mesh supplies from MardiGrasOutlet.com. I may have seen tubing at Michaels recently but I’m not 100% sure. I think it was in the ribbon aisle???
