Our plain weave stainless steel is both flexible, durable, and hardy. It can stand up to freezing cold nights and give shape and form to lots of different figures. As you start planning the different types of Christmas decorations you want to create, consider all the ways you can use wire mesh.
Christmas Lawn and Roof Figures
Wire mesh can be your molding clay, allowing you to create outdoor figures, both big and small. You can create a life-sized Santa, his reindeer, and even his sled. Shape the wire mesh into gaudy presents, happy elves, or round snowmen.
Once the body is formed with the wire mesh, add clothes, felt fabric, and lights to turn it into a life-like figure. The stainless steel will hold up well no matter how bad the weather gets.
Holiday Door Wreath
Make a truly unique holiday door wreath. Use the wire mesh to give the wreath body and then get creative. Cover it with ribbons, tinsel, LED Christmas lights, or felt fabric. There are so many cool options.
Honestly, if you are tired of real pine trees shedding needles all over your carpet, use wire mesh to create an artsy new family Christmas tree. Cover it in ornaments and lights. It will truly stand out.
