Mesh Christmas Wreath Tutorial (Re-posted from last year)

Hello everyone! If you are like me, you’re  busy getting ready for company coming for Thanksgiving.

I’m so excited.  Everyone will be home!!!!

I noticed today that my mesh wreath Christmas tutorial from last year got more visits than the main blog page!

How does that happen?

So here it is…. on the main page :-)…

A re-run from last year.

Enjoy!

I made such an easy wreath a few days ago…and I remembered to take pictures!

I have never made one of these mesh wreaths before.
It was soooo easy.  Anyone could do this.

1.  Lay your wreath on a flat surface and “fluff” the branches so they are sticking up and out.

I purchased a 22 inch wreath from Michael’s.  It was $2.99

2.  Scrunch up your mesh.

You can purchase the mesh at Michael’s, but our Michael’s was sold out so I went to a wholesale florist shop to purchase it.
It runs about 12.99 a role.

3.  Lay your scrunched part of the mesh in between 2 branches.

4.  Twist the 2 branches around your mesh.

5.  Repeat the scrunch and twist about every 6 inches until you come to the first loop.  Tuck the ends through the wreath
so they are hidden on the backside of the wreath.

6.  Next, cut ribbons (I used 2.5 inch wired ribbon in two different patterns) in 6-8 inch strips and randomly “twist” them
into the wreath just as you did the “scrunch” part of the mesh (you just won’t be making the loop part).

This is what it should look like.

7.  Randomly hot glue your ornaments into the wreath.   Add any type of foliage, randomly placing them into the wreath.
8.  I added two ornaments to the center.   I attached them to a ribbon and then strung the ribbon through the wreath.

 

What do you think?

I’m hoping to finish up my decorating tomorrow.  I have a Christmas Tree tutorial that I’d like to share with you.  You can see one in the left hand, bottom corner in the picture above.

See you tomorrow!

Don’t forget there is a link party going on.

  4. Great tutorial and I really needed it. I bought a large roll of this at Sam’s Club last night for about $6.98. per roll of 10 yards by 21 inches wide. You just gave me the courage to tear into the package. Thanks, so very much. I’m your newest follower and would love to have a visit from you.
    Merry Christmas, Helen

  6. It’s really beautiful. I love the green/red mesh ribbon, really has a beautiful color to it. Also thanks so much for such a great tutorial. Oah, if you don’t have anything to do later, would you make me one (ha ha). I like how the ribbon pops out of the wreath. Great Job. Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration over at Sunday’s Best! Make sure you come back now.
