Holiday and Seasonal Deco Mesh Craft Projects

Once you've made one deco mesh ribbon wreath, you've pretty much got the process down and can make any number of wreaths. You can do this by simply changing the colors of the mesh ribbon and trims you want to add.

Because I feel that there is elegance in simplicity, I prefer wreaths that aren’t too busy. Deco mesh ribbon is so beautiful on its own, and when too much is added the wreath becomes gaudy rather than exquisite.

In this article, you'll find wreaths and other crafts that are perfect for the following holidays, seasons, and celebrations:

  • Halloween
  • Autumn and Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • Valentine's Day
  • Spring, Easter, and St. Pat's Day
  • Summer and July 4th
  • Showers and Weddings

Every project in this article includes the link to the tutorial that will show you how to make it.
