It’s a Deco Mesh Wreath Form. It’s not very pretty, but it’s the base for some of those beautiful Deco Mesh wreaths that adorn windows and doors. I’m sure you’ve seen them. Those huge deco mesh wreaths are so pretty but if you just go out and buy one at the local store, you’re going to be paying a pretty penny….. which really means that your wallet is probably going to cry… a lot.
Well, unless you’ve got tons of money and then you’ll probably be ok 😉 However, I just can not bring myself to pay $80 or more for a wreath (That’s the price around here!) So I’ve started making them at home.
You’ll need a “work wreath” to make these wreaths and I just prefer to make my own because it’s cheaper. They’re pretty much a wire wreath with twisty garland like pieces twisted onto them. You can buy work wreaths at places like Hobby Lobby for somewhere between $5-$8.
But, for my wreaths, I make my own “work wreath” bases. Mine cost me about $1.50-$3.00 depending on if I can get the items on sale. So $1.50-$3.00 is a lot better for me than $5-$8.
Plus I love to make my own because I can match my “work wreath” colors to my wreath colors.
