Deco/Geo Mesh Wreath

We have been getting these rolls of mesh in at work and everyone is asking what it is used for, so I decided to do some research and here is the results:

It is very simple to make, here are my supplies:

1 roll of geo/deco mesh
U pins (floral)
Embelishments (flowers, butterflies)

Fasten geo mesh to wreath with U pin and roll out about 6-12 inches and gather and pin.
Should look like this:

You can make the gather/loops small or big depending upon how fluffy you want the wreath.

This is what it looks like when done and then you would add embelishments for the finished product.

I have made them with straw wreaths and it makes a big and really fluffy wreath.  I found using the flat styrofoam or wooden wreath is best.  Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy.

My Craft Room (AKA "The Scrapping Pad"

Here are a few pics of my craft room.  This used to be a kitchen and I converted it to my scrap area by placing a little bit of this and that to make storage and have space to create.  I wished I had one that looked like most of them on here, but I like mine b/c it's comfy and some of the stuff my dad built. 

This iswhere I store most of my ribbon.  I admit, I have a ribbon problem.  LOL  Working at a ribbon outlet doesn't help.

This is just what I could fit in here, I have a basket under my table full of loose ribbon that needs spooled. 

Well I need to get back at working on a Valentine's Day Project.  Have a wonderful day!!

Happy 2012!!

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, alot of changes have taken place since my last post.  I bounced back wonderfully after surgery.  I have also started working again part time at a local ribbon outlet.  Talk about enabling, the prices are very reasonable and on top of that we get 50% off if we meet our monthly goal.  I had a wonderful Christmas spending time with family and a surprise visit from my sister in GA.  I hope everyone has a wonderful and healthy 2012!!

Here is some of my latest creations I made for Christmas presents this year.  I am proud to say I made prob 85% of my Christmas presents this year.  My New Years resolution is to do a handmade Christmas again next year but start earlier.  LOL
