Deco Mesh Fall Wreath

Deco Mesh Fall Wreath.

Deco mesh is a plastic ribbon that resembles fabric. I`s flexible and very easy to use for doing bows, garlands, and wreaths.  I decided to do my own, reusing some existing  material that I had from previous year.  I had an 18 inches straw wreath, and some spools of ribbons to cover the straw wreath.    WP_20140901_004

For this wreath, I used 2 spool of ribbon  for covering the straw. For this part you can use any ribbons, because the back will be facing the wall or door.  A straw wreath is not the usual wreath to use with deco mesh.  The wreath recommended for working with the deco mesh ribbon, is the wire “work wreath”.  But remember that I`m reusing the last year wreath.

These are the materials that I’m reusing from last year: 1 straw wreath, 1 deco mesh in multicolor, and 2 satin ribbons to cover the straw wreath.

These are the materials that I bought :

2 deco mesh spool 5 1/2 inches wide in orange, and 1 in brown, 1 package of florist pins, and 1 satin ribbon for decoration

WP_20140920_004Directions:

For my 18 inches wreath, I cut the deco mesh 26 inches long for each bow.

Form a bow, putting the two ends together, and crumple together to the center and tied with the florist wire

Continue until you finish the 3 deco mesh spools

Place the bows with a florist pin in the wreath, alternating colors: multi, orange, brown. Continue until you finish covering the whole wreath.

Cut the decorative satin ribbons at 14 inches, and with a florist pin, inserted in the middle of the ribbon, then in the wreath.

Hope you like it!!

Turkey Wings

Turkey Wings

Turkey wings are an inexpensive cut of meat, great to feed a family, 3 turkey wings, will feed a family of 6.  Based on the fact that they are a bit tough to cook, you have different options for cooking them: either by using a pressure cooker or in the oven cover for at least one hour. I did mine in the oven.

WP_20140603_005To add color, I browned the pieces in 3 spoonful of vegetable oil.

WP_20140603_001After achieving the desire color, the vegetables, wine, and chicken broth were added.

WP_20140603_002Cover and to the oven for 1 hr more or less at 350F.

WP_20140603_007After removing the excess grease from the pan, all the vegetables were mashed to make a sauce.
