Holiday Mesh Door Swag
Not many projects are easier to create than this festive door swag. Deco mesh makes easy work of creating the background which is anchored to plastic canvas with pipe cleaners. The look is completed with ornaments, ribbon and lights. If you need something eye-catching on your front door, give this one a try. The finished length is approximately 30” long.
step 5 - Using this first row as your model, move down the canvas 3” from the first row and create another row of five more pipe cleaners. Continue working the entire canvas this way adding fewer pipe cleaners to a row as it tapers down to 6”. The last row should include only two pipe cleaners.
step 9 - Attach copper and gold ornaments of different sizes to the canvas.
step 10 - Put batteries in the lights battery pack then wrap pipe cleaners securely around it. Connect the battery pack to the back side of the canvas so it’s out of sight. Attach the ends of the pipe cleaners to the bottom corner of the canvas so that it will be easy to access the switch when you want to turn the lights on or off.
Step 11 - Thread the light string through the swag as desired.
