Here is info to help you out...
I don't cut mine. I start at the end of the roll and attach to the frame. Then loop and attach. Repeat until I have either used all of the roll or my wreath is full enough.

The 14 inch would be a good size
Hi there Carie. My name is Cindy. I don't think you should cut the mesh at all. Gather as you go. The 8" wreath would look good with mesh gathered in 6" increments. And the 14" wreath would look good with mesh gathered in 10" increments. Good luck with this project Carie. I wish you well.
The amount of deco mesh you require - by using it as if it were the mesh it's self, try
using a tape measure. Good luck!
I would use the deco mesh and use as much as you need and then make a final cut when you are done - that way you won't have to guess.
