As a teacher-blogger, I usually stick with the game plan…everything school. However, today I want to share a little tip that might save you some serious dough! We built a home about 8 years ago, and a year or two before we finished I began to buy Christmas decor. One of our purchases was over 100 ft of garland. Let’s just say it was pretty pricey. Over the years it has been twisted and contorted to the point it isn’t pretty anymore.
Here is where the fun begins.
I have been looking for three or four years at all of the deco mesh projects here and there, on Pinterest, and in magazines. I finally decided to take the plunge and buy four 30 ft rolls of 16″ deco mesh at around 6.00 each. For about $26 I have instant beautification! The store I purchased the mesh from also had some large round super sized glitter effect ornaments and some nice glittery red apples for $1 each. I already had lights! There are tons of how-to videos on youtube, so after watching them I decided making deco poufs isn’t rocket science! Here is the result of my effort. Love how it looks.
Here is one video that has clear how-to instructions. Just a little warning…this may or may not be my last Christmas-related post!
