DIY Deco Mesh Garland

I love deco mesh, the pop of vibrant color it adds to your Christmas decor is unmatched.!! In this tutorial I am going to show you how to make gorgeous deco mesh garland. I used this garland on my front porch surrounding my door and you would not believe how gorgeous this is both during the day and lit up at night. You can use it all around your home, on your mantle on your stairs or anywhere you like. Now on to the tutorial!

Step 1: 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/At Home last year after xmas for 50% off!I added lights to it so that it would light up at night.
Now its time to add the deco mesh! I ended up only using the two wide rolls and not the shorter deco mesh ribbon rolls. I also used some chevron green and red wired ribbon for an extra pop (got it at Sams)!
I used green pipe cleaners to attach the first piece of deco mesh. I scrunched up the end and wrapped around the garland to secure.
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.
I kept doing these poofs until I reached the end. The 18ft garland used one roll of 30 ft deco mesh. Boom first round of mesh done!
Next round of mesh was the green. I secured exactly as I did for the red. Trying to go in between each red loop to cover as much garland as possible.
It was starting to come together but it needed one bit of contrast to make it perfect. Enter chevron ribbon!

    Did you use the small green and red ribbon? I see it laid out in the pictures but I don't see where you used it nor can I find in the instructions where you used it? I'm probably just dumb and can't figure it out. For some reason I'm scared to use the deco mesh , tule, burlap that is the "in thing" these days.

    I was thinking about doing this project but didn't know how. I might do it next year, but it has been so windy her it would probably end up a couple miles away this year. LOL
