23 Clever Craft Ideas Using Deco Mesh

Updated on March 30, 2018

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and kid-friendly 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.



2. Coastal Wreath

Imagine this beautiful coastal themed wreath above your mantel or on a focal wall. Very elegant. When you go to the Across the Blvd site you'll also find links to a coastal Christmas wreath and a Halloween wreath.


3. Pumpkin Door Hanger

Make a beautiful pumpkin door hanger like the one shown here by going to the Miss Kopy Kat site for the tutorial. This is one of my favorite door hanger ideas, beautiful and easy to make.

4. Deco Mesh Flower Tutorial

Making this beautiful wreath will be easy when you follow the instructions at Grillo Designs.

5. Thanksgiving Pumpkin

This stand alone pumpkin is made using a 12" work ball and the tutorial found at TRENDY TREE. If you prefer a pumpkin that can be hung on a door or wall, you'll see a super cute example shown at the bottom of the tutorial. The hanging pumpkin uses a half work ball.

7. Puff Balls and/or Topiaries

I think these puff balls would be perfect for decorating for a bridal shower or baby shower. They are so pretty and dainty looking. Imagine all the colors that deco mesh ribbon is available in. You'll be able to find the perfect color for your party. Find the instructions for making these puff balls, and also how to make a topiary, at Mardi Gras Outlet.


8. Baby Shower Wreath

Three colors of deco mesh ribbon were used in making this wreath, but you may choose to use only one or two. To find the tutorial for making this exquisite wreath, go to the Cut Out + Keep site. I think a huge white wreath, centered with a large pillar candle, would make an elegant wedding table decoration.

9. Deco Mesh Ribbon Garland

Not only do you get a nice tutorial for making this garland when you go to MISS KOPY KAT, you'll also find many pictures showing examples of hanging the garland. I'm thinking I should make a Christmas themed garland for the school library, where my daughter works.

10. Mailbox Scarecrow Wreath

If you like to decorate your mail box for Fall or Thanksgiving, this scarecrow is certainly an exceptional idea. To find the instructions for making this mail box wreath, go to The Wreath Artist site. I consider any outdoor holiday decorations are like a gift to the neighbors.

12. Christmas Centerpiece

Find out how easy it is to make an attractive deco mesh ribbon centerpiece, using a styrofoam disc as the base, when you go to the CRAFTY IN CROSBY site. Making centerpieces doesn't have to be expensive.


13. Spring or Easter Carrots

These are some outstanding carrot wreaths. Be the first one in your neighbor hood with an unique Easter wreath MISS KOPY KAT is the site that you'll visit to find the tutorial. On the site you'll also find a link for making a cute heart Valentine wreath.



14. Sunflower Wreath

Wouldn't sunflowers be an interesting theme for a summer wedding? This sunflower wreath is a real beauty. I'm sure I'd be able to rig up something for a stem for the flower so it could be displayed potted. Find the directions for making this sunflower at Dee’s Crafts.


15. Turkey Wreath

I love this burlap turkey with it's deco mesh ribbon, loopy feathers. It's not a difficult project, one that uses a burlap covered turkey body shape. The tutorial for making this beautiful turkey wreath is found at CLUMSY CRAFTER.

16. Wedding Bow

17. Deco Mesh and Burlap Wreath

The burlap look of this deco mesh makes this an exceptional wreath. I like this wreath for a Fall seasonal wreath, but it really is appropriate at any time of the year. You'll find it an easy project to make by following the tutorial at DECORCHICK.


18. Patriotic Wreath

The red, white and blue deco mesh ribbons make this a perfectly patriotic wreath. Very simple and very attractive. To find the instructions for making this wreath, go to the mama to aidan site.

19. Flower Wreath

If you love huge flower wreaths, but the sunflower one wasn't for you, here is a project for using any color deco mesh to make the color flower of your choice. Any color would be beautiful. You'll find the tutorial for making this wreath at Ben Franklin. The green leaves around the flower really sets this wreath off.

20. How to Make a Ghost Decoration

21. Snowman Wreath

Cute, cute, cute!! Who wouldn't love this snowman wreath? Unbelievably easy to make when you follow the instructions given at Grillo Designs.
