This is a follow up to my "Special Gift" post.  This is a picture of the house I started with.

I hope to post the steps I took and how I transformed this into a replica of our neighbors house.  See my post "Special Gift" for pictures of the finished house and check the comments section under "Special Gift" for more information as well.  Thanks for stopping by have a wonderful day everyone.

Valentine's Day

I know its a little early for Valentine's Day, but I went to Pat Catans to see what sales they had on the leftover Christmas stuff and to my surprise it was mostly gone and replaced with a row of Valentine's Day stuff.  I figured I better look at it before its gone too.  I don't usually decorate much for this holiday but they had a cute deco mesh wreath on display so I thought maybe I can make my own version of it.  I have only worked with deco mesh one other time and it was ok but not great like I have seen others make on Etsy.  This one looks better so maybe if I keep practicing I will get better and more creative.  Hope you enjoy.  If you have some experience with deco mesh and would like to share some tips and tricks please do so.

Items I used:  (1) 16" box wreath frame, (1+) bag red mesh tubing, chenille stems, (1) roll red mesh, (1) roll pink windowpane mesh, stuffed dog, ribbon of choice.

This is a picture of some of the supplies I used.

Thank you everyone for stopping by.
