29 Clever Craft Ideas Using Deco Mesh

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.


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

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.

All the projects in this article include links to tutorials for making the items. One of the sites, Marti Gras Outlet, has a number of mesh ribbon crafts. You can find them by clicking on “tutorials” at the top of their site. The watermelon swag shown above is one of the projects you’ll find on the site. One of the rules on HubPages is that a link to a particular site can only be given twice in an article. Since there are three of their projects that I wish to include in this article, please click on the Marti Gras Outlet link in the project below and then find “Watermelon Wreath” in the tutorials.


1. Halloween Ghosts

These cute ghosts are made simply using balloons, white deco mesh ribbon and purchased black masks. Halloween isn't the same without displaying a few ghosts. You'll find the quick and easy instructions for this project at Mardi Gras Outlet.
