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. 

Hugs!!
