12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 7 - High Heels & Scuffed Sneakers

Here today for days seven of the 12 Days of Christmas Crafts we have Heather from High Heels and Scuffed Sneakers! She will be showing us here Geo Mesh Wreath and has included a Youtube video that she used! Happy to have you Heather!

Hi Y'all! I'm Heather from High Heels and Scuffed Sneakers and I'm thrilled to be guest blogging for Audra. Isn't her blog terrific?!? I live in Lexington, Kentucky and blog about frugal living, marriage, faith and my attempts at being domestic. One of my most recent domestic attempts has been to create the perfect Christmas wreath. I'd like to share that with y'all today.

Geo Mesh Christmas Wreaths are gorgeous and expensive too! I looked online and fell in love with this one on Etsy for $105. I obsessed over the price tag and tried to justify the purchase in my head.

Finally, once I surrendered to the fact that I would not be spending $105 on a new wreath, I realized that I could make it for a fraction of the price. In order to make the perfect Christmas wreath, I needed some guidance. I found a tutorial on you tube and made my supply list.

What You'll Need
Geo Mesh
Wreath Form
Satin Floral Ribbon
Floral Pins
Wire Cutters

I was so proud of my purchase because I was able to by most of the supplies for $15 at Hobby Lobby. They have excellent sales and coupons frequently too! Another way I saved money on the project was by comparing prices of Geo Mesh. Many stores in my area do not carry Geo Mesh and as a result the ones that do, mark the prices up sky high. Generally speaking, the mesh you see above sells for around $20. However, I was able to buy mine for $10.95. Therefore, my total investment on my wreath was $26. That's 1/4 of the original price tag! It pays to make your own! 

After I danced around the dining room table and celebrated my savings, I got to work and created the perfect Christmas wreath.  Isn't she lovely?
Here is the video Heather used to learn how to make her own geo mesh wreath! Watch this video to learn how to make your own! Happy crafting!

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
