Decorating with Deco Mesh + A Giveaway

by jessicaturner on December 7, 2012

A few weeks ago I was asked by Sam’s Club to go shopping at their store and use the products I bought for a DIY project. I must say, I don’t generally think of Sam’s for DIY so I took them up on their challenge – and was pleasantly surprised.

Because it’s Christmas time, they had tons of Christmas decor supplies. I was immediately drawn to the packs of deco mesh.

Are you familiar with deco mesh? It’s this wide, pliable, mesh material that comes in lots of colors and is so pretty and fun.

Here in the south, there is deco mesh decor EVERYWHERE. I had never even seen it in stores before this year.

After opening it up and playing a little bit, I went back to Sam’s for more. At $8 a pack, it is so affordable – and so fun! I also bought some big and pretty rolls of thin and thick ribbon.

My first project was a deco mesh wreath. These are EVERYWHERE on Pinterest. I used this tutorial and within an hour had this pretty number hanging on our front door. The mesh and ribbon is from Sam’s and the ornaments are from our Christmas stash.

I must admit. I was pretty darn proud of myself. Didn’t it turn out adorable!? I promise, you could totally do it too. SO, so easy. It took only about half a roll of mesh to do the wreath.

I then decided to trim our main tree with deco mesh. Matthew and I really wanted a change this year and boy did this mesh do that. Check it out!

When exploring how to use decorative mesh on a Christmas tree I (totally by accident) stumbled on this Sam’s Club video:

It is short and does a good job explaining how to add the mesh to a tree.

Also be sure to check out the Cheer Guide from Brooke Peterson for additional inspiration/ideas with Sam’s Club items this Holiday.

Today I’m excited to be giving away a Christmas gift basket from Sam’s that includes deco mesh and other fun decor items.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Have you decorated with deco mesh before?

Disclosure: Sam’s club provided me with a membership and gift card to facilitate this DIY project. All fun with the deco mesh was my own!

I started seeing it on blogs last year, and a little bit on people’s mailboxes locally, but not in stores. I wanted to try it this year but didn’t want to spend any more money. If I win it, though…. :0)

I used the mesh this year around my front door and on my mantle, but wasn’t sure exactly what to do on the tree. I decided I would add that next year. Thanks for the video and I love your tree!!!

My favorite veggie? It’s actually hard to choose! Maybe a three way tie between artichokes, brussel sprouts and green peas?

Love the mesh. I’m thinking I need to try that next year instead of ribbon. Perhaps that will give me the look I going for. Because what I’ve done I’m not a fan of :)

I LOVE this! This is my first year as an empty nest and changed things up myself. I wanted the house to have an adult/elegant feel and this would have been perfect. Next year I promised the grandkids a candy/cookie tree, but think I could work this in. Thanks so much for the sharing.

Jody December 8, 2012 at 12:25 pm

No, I just saw it the first time this year at Hobby Lobby. But all those decorations would totally match my tree!

I haven’t tried the deco mesh yet. I’ll have to check it out the next time I’m at Sam’s Club. I did pick up a couple of rolls of the small wired tinsel and I’ve made several super cute little trees with it. You may have just helped me finish up my Christmas gifts for this year! :) Thanks!
