How To Make Deco Mesh Wreaths: Step by Step Instructions
Deco Mesh Wreaths are such a creative and thoughtful gift to give to any family member during any Holiday, Birthday, or special occasion. In fact, they have come quite popular to make lately. I made six mesh wreaths over the holidays for friends and family and they are super easy to make. There are plenty of Deco Mesh wreaths for sale on Etsy or other boutique online shops but they can get quite pricey. I am here to share with you a step by step tutorial on how you can make deco mesh wreaths easily:
List of supplies needed to make Deco Mesh Wreaths:
- Wire Wreath Frame (Walmart sells these too)
- Mesh Ribbon (Long) 1 should be enough to make one wreath 21″ by 10 Yard
- Mesh Ribbon (Short) 6″ by 10 Yard
- Tube Ribbon
- Door hanger
- Pipe Cleaners (I purchased pipe cleaners to match my mesh ribbon)
- Extra matching ribbons
- Wooden letters & designs
- Small Screw Hooks & Wire (Hang/Hook Letters)
Directions to make Deco Mesh Wreaths:
- Add twist ties to your frame. Place them about 3″ apart and alternate/zig zag the pattern of the ties. Meaning place one on the top wire, then the second from the bottom; Place one on the second from the top and then the bottom. Twist the ties on tightly.
- Begin by folding over about 6″ of your mesh to create a hem. Scrunch it together and attach it to the wire frame with the twist tie. Twist tightly.
- Continue by using about 8″ of mesh and scrunching it and attaching it to the twist ties on the wire frame. Continue all the way around the wreath frame. I used the entire roll of mesh for one wreath.
- To finish, bunch the end together and attach to an existing twist tie or add a new twist tie and attach.
- Fluff your mesh in an appealing way by moving it around a bit on your frame.
- Add your floral clips and hang!
- Take your time! Don’t get in any rush.
- You may not think it is looking like you planned but if you keep twisting & wrapping the deco mesh into the pipe cleaners and working yourself around the wire wreath frame adding layers, it will start to look like a wreath in no time. I promise.
- Try to stock up when the materials go on sale.
- If you are making these wreaths for gifts, don’t wait the last minute. I made six wreaths one week before Christmas and was under pressure finishing them up on time.
- Get creative with your color and materials you use.
- Pinterest is your best friend with ideas.
- Make plenty of table space room to work on.
With materials, I spend around ten dollars to make one wreath but watch for store sales and you might do even better than this!
