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 recently made this Spring Mesh Wreath that I think you will love. 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!
