Front Porch Deco Mesh Garland {Tutorial}

So I showed you guys my deco mesh wreath and promised a tutorial for how I made my garland. It’s the same concept for both the wreath and garland. There is seriously NO way you can mess this up!

Start with a plain green garland. You won’t be able to see any of it once you finish.

Take a section of the mesh and sort of squish it down to make a bubble.

Then take a pipe cleaner or twist tie and secure it around the garland.

This is what it looks like once you have the base of white on. A hot mess. But then you take your smaller deco mesh ribbon and go back through….

I twist tied the red to all the sections that were there before and middle of the sections.

Here’s a visual. You will take your red and twist tie it like the picture.

Then you go back through and fill in the spaces where you can see the twist ties with ornaments. It’s so simple but make a big impact! (I think I need a Christmas mat… it looks a smidge out of place!)

I think there will be more deco mesh in my future :)
