Does anyone have any easy suggestions for using up leftover Decomesh?

I made a lot of deco mesh wreaths before I had a stroke( my right hand is barely usable) so now I am looking for easy things to make for a craft fair. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Gerry

    Hi Gerry, Don't be so quick to get rid of your supplies. I too had a very debilitating stroke. The doctors said that I would not make it through the night. Then they said that I would be bedridden for the rest of my life. Well, today I am driving in my new red caddie, her name is Bella, and running a charity for those in need. I am an inspirational speaker for those who have given up and I am a proud Hometalk team member. I do woodburning, wreath making, and porch gardening. So don't get rid of anything, just teach yourself to use it in a different way. I have used many mediums such as seashells, old wood planks, clothespins and silk flowers. Gerry, I encourage you to scour the Hometalk posts until you find something that you like; then visualize yourself making it and get started. Good luck and "Peace be unto you."

      Thank you so much for your encouragement. I will look for things I can do. I really love Hometalk and the members. God bless you. Gerry.
