Wanna learn how to make your own curly deco mesh wreath? Well, you've come to the right spot. This wreath was made with items purchased from Hobby Lobby. Every item was 40% off and I walked out the door spending $86. I don't buy wholesale, because I just don't make wreaths that often. This took me less than 2 hours to make. Most of my time was spent cutting the deco mesh. This is a large wreath. It spans my entire front door. Hope you enjoy this.
So like I took some pics from Hobby Lobby of all the great things to make a wreath in this color combo of red, white and turquoise.
These snowmen are so cute!
And so are these gingerbread people!
Christmas tree decorations also make great Christmas wreath decorations.
And all the deco mesh.
More red and turquoise. Lots of good ideas here to make a wreath. Signs are great to put in the center.
Just more decorations if you wanted to keep the same color scheme through out your home.
What you need:
Big center snowman or any stuffed Christmas item or sign.
2 rolls of 21 inch deco mesh. I used a striped one and a solid red color.
16 inch deco mesh wired wreath with the ties.
Lots of Christmas decorations to attach
2 rolls of coordinating ribbon
Start by cutting up your deco mesh. I cut my strips in about 8 to 10 inch strips. Please don't take the time to measure. Just guestimate. No need to be perfect here. There are 15 ties on the wreath frame. I used 4 rolls per tie. So I cut 60 rolls, 30 of each color.
Gather 4 rolls in the center and attach to one of the ties on the inside frame. Work inside first, and then move to the outer frame.
Twist all ties in the same direction. It will help you out later on when you go to attach your decorations. Just twist about 4 to 5 times. Do not fold the ties under to hide them.
This is the what the wreath looks like with just the deco mesh on it.
Now open your large ribbon roll and you are going to attach it to any inside twist tie.
Take the ribbon and loop it around the wreath going over the top and behind it. Over and under.
Then start with your next ribbon and attach to the same place where the first ribbon is attached.
Loop it around your wreath just like with the first ribbon.
To attach the snowman, take some ribbon and tie it securely around his neck leaving about 10 inches of ribbon to attach to the frame of the wreath. This I attached to the frame, not the twist ties. Just tie a double knot and trim the rest of the ribbon off. It's attached to the inside ring of the wreath frame.
Then I took my wreath off the floor and hung a ribbon to the outer wreath frame so I could hang it on the wall and work on it. You won't be able to just hang the wreath frame directly on a nail in the wall. It's too fluffy.
Then I attached all the little Christmas decorations I got with the twist ties. Just space them evenly around the wreath.
Have A Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
