This is one of my favorite projects I have made EVER. Maybe it is because I used deco mesh for the first time and I love trying new things. Maybe it is because I used burlap and I LOVE burlap. It could be both of those, but my favorite part is the finished product. I love the way it looks and I love the colors. I am very happy with this wreath.
I made this wreath for my future sister-in-law. She had a bridal shower and the theme of the shower was around the house. I was assigned the front door and I knew I had to do a wreath that she had been eyeing at Quilted Bear (local store). I love everything about wreaths (I know I talk about it often) and so I was up for the challenge. The only thing that made me a little nervous is that I had never used deco mesh before and I wanted the finished product to be fabulous.
Come to find out deco mesh is so fun. There are so many colors, but I stuck with the natural burlap color since I was using natural burlap for the flowers. The colors work perfectly together and I am more than pleased with the outcome.

- 12-inch Deco Mesh (I got mine from Michaels)

- Hot glue gun
- Black material (I got mine from Walmart. They have a bunch of fabric quarters already to go by their fabric that you can buy by the yard. It was only $1 and I didn't use it all!)
