April Home

Welcome to my Home this April . As the weather turns warmer I start redecorating the house for Spring and Easter. From the front door to the outside I have some great decorating idea’s.

Spring Deco Mesh Wreath :

How much Deco mesh do you need to make a wreath?

For a 15-24″ Premade Work Form, you’ll need 18 pieces of the mesh. Ruffle each piece of the 10″ mesh and insert one ruffle into each twist tie.

I buy mine from Big box craft stores or local Dollar Tree.
