~~Valentine Mesh Wreath~~

Hi guys! Valentine's Day is just around the corner! I was looking through my older posts and came across these mesh wreaths I made for a client last year. You might remember them...just thought I'd post them again.
I am gathering up materials to make an Easter mesh wreath for my front door. I am going to show you how to make one for yourself too!! I have seen so many cute Easter items at Hobby Lobby and Michael's so I think it will turn out cute!


In case your wondering if we got hit by that snowstorm yesterday the answer is yes! Although we got 7 inches of snow it doesn't compare to what they got about an hour away from here up north. Some places got 30 inches!! It was a record for Arkansas...I still can't believe it! We have yet another snow day tomorrow! The kiddos might be going all summer! lol...The snow sure is pretty, but like I said in my last post...I"M READY FOR SPRING!!!

New Etsy Store Items Coming Tomorrow... Have a great weekend!!

P.S. I get my deco polymesh locally but if you are not able to find it in your town I have searched online and found a place to order it. It's called Audrey's Gifts and Home Decor. They have a very good selection of the polymesh and great prices. I usually pay $9.99 a roll... most of their rolls are $5.99 to $7.99. Just thought I would let you know in case you can't find it in your area. (I assume this is a reputable company but I have not ordered from them)

One more thing...you will need two rolls of the mesh...two different colors. I think I am using lavender and pink.

Hi Kristen, I love the Valentine's wreath you made. I look forward to you showing us how to make one. Where do you purchase the mesh? I have not been able to find any at Micheal's in Iowa. Thanks for sharing and spring is comming soon!!

I just love your mesh wreaths!! I wanna make one for myself. There's a floral shop over here I am gonna check to see if they sell that mesh. I hope you are staying warm!!

These are so pretty! I LOVE them! They look great there on your doors too. Glad to see you are staying busy despite all the snow! Happy Valentines Day!

Hi Kristen! Oh, your wreaths are wonderful! I can just imagine what you'll do for Easter! :)

I've never really taken Valentines' to heart ( no pun intended ) as I'm usually still getting over Christmas. I do love what you did with those wreaths, they're fantastic!

Nancy said...

Don't you make arrangements? And do you sell them on eBay? Or would I sent you a photo of where I'm wanting one and give you a general idea of the colors?
Love your wreath!! Will these be for sale on Etsy? I would love to have one for next year since Monday is so close this year.

I have always loved those mesh wreaths. They are so full! Have a great Valentine's Day!

LC said...

Kristen, pretty wreath! I've only seen the mesh ribbon at Christmastime. I can't wait to see the ones you make for Easter.
Stay warm. Spring is coming soon!
have a happy Friday~

Love your wreaths!
P.S. I am one of those that live in NW AR that got 20 inches of snow...I think I hate snow now..haha! Have a great weekend!

Sandra said...

Hi Kristen! Love the Valentine wreath you made. I've been looking for the mesh garland and have no luck. Hobby Lobby carried some for Christmas but that was it. I'm so glad you posted a link on where we might be able to find it. I'm gonna check it out. Thanks so much.

Very petty and unique wreaths Kristen. They are fabulous with two.

The Valentine wreath is really cute. I have ordered several times from Audrey's shop before and have never had any problem. She is my main source for the mesh. Happy Belated Valentine's Day.

Love the wreaths! I am also a floral designer and love to see other people's creations. Hobby Lobby now carries the mesh in their gift wrap department. 50% off makes it $5 a roll which is cheaper than I paid wholesale.
