Mesh Holiday Wreaths

We are all busy putting up out holiday decorations and getting in the spirit.  For the past few years I always say I am going to attempt to make a white Mesh Wreath filled with brightly colored mini ornaments.  Again, I told myself the same thing but have yet to embark on that adventure.  While strolling the asiles of AC Moore I found the instructions and picked them up for inspiration, hopefully they will inspire your creative side too!

in same manner until wreath is filled with mesh loops.
