Use Leftovers to Hide Mechanics on Wreaths

Sharing is caring!

Here’s a #wreathmaking tip- Use leftover silk leaves to help cover your mechanics on the back of the wreath. Just hot glue them into place. Silk leaves also work for softening the wreath back so it doesn’t scratch the door. #wreathblog Follow me on Instagram for more behind the scenes photos of wreath making and running a wreath business – @southerncharmwreaths

    Hi Julie. Do you have any tricks to keep the mesh from sliding around toward the back on the outside ring (and the inside ring) on the wreath form? Ive only made a few wreaths, but this is an issue I’ve had on each one. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    I have a lot of trouble attaching letters when doing deco mesh wreaths and hiding my mechanics. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
