I'm a MESH ADDICT.
Relax!! I said meSH. Better than some addictions out there in the world I suppose.
I got on a kick with my Mesh Pumpkin Wreath, and then my second Mesh Pumpkin Wreath (I should have seen a problem forming.) I was blind to it though and let my mind run away with all of the things I wanted to do with mesh. Every holiday would have mesh draped upon it in some form or fashion!
A person really shouldn't feel like they have to have contact with mesh in order to make it through the day :) it's just not healthy!
Okay, joking aside, sort of, after the pumpkin wreaths I really wanted to make a Mesh Candy Cane Wreath for my front door.
I'm pretty sure there are candy cane wreath forms out there in the world, but why waste my time looking when I have a few of the most terrible/useful wreath form makers in all the world stuffed at the back of my husband's closet -- thank you 'red hanger'! Oh wait, I mean, um, I wash and press all of my husband's work shirts... really. Um. Anyway...
Wire hangers! Hate them. Can't live without them.
I bent, twisted, and molded two white wire hangers into the shape of a candy cane, then secured the ends together by twisting them then adding hot glue and felt (it's not a scientific thing, but it worked) and began wrapping and wiring my red and white mesh in place.
Three wraps of red, four wraps of white. The red seemed to be taking over the white... that's why the white got an extra wrap.
Finished it off with a quick wrapping of green organza ribbon and mesh scraps left over from the mesh pumpkins.
It found it's place in the basement for a few weeks, while I PATIENTLY waited for Christmas decorating time.
Now it's in a happy spot on the front door with the garland I made last year. (I had to add a few sprinkles of white mesh into the garland this year to tie it in with the candy cane, of course.)
Here is a picture of our front door this year.
Merry Christmas decorating to you! May all your MESHES ... I mean wishes... come true!
