How to make a buffalo plaid deco mesh wreath: Step-by-step tutorial 

1. Prep your base

Begin by preparing your base wreath; fluff it up so it’s full and ready for decorating.

Then, add your decorative winter sign to the center of the wreath using wire anchors. 

2. Add your mesh

Next, cut your 10” plaid mesh into 10” strips. You can use a rotary cutter or scissors. You will need approximately 20-30 strips altogether.

Prep your mesh piece by rolling the edges inwards, scrunching it together in the middle, and securing it to your wreath using needle ties. 

Space your mesh pieces out evenly in two rings; one at the outer edge of your wreath, and one closer to the middle of your wreath. 

Keep going until you’ve made it all the way around, using 10-15 pieces in each ring. 

3. Include ribbons

Time for ribbon!

Cut 20 streamers of your snowflake ribbon at 12 inches long and 20 streamers of your plaid ribbon at 10 inches long. 

Layer a streamer of plaid ribbon on top of the snowflake ribbon, pinching in the middle and securing to your wreath with a tie. 

Separate your ribbons, fanning them out like an “x.” Continue adding them evenly throughout your wreath. 

4. Layer your greens

Next, layer your greens for added texture and depth. Attach them using hot glue, ensuring you’re attaching them to the wreath base. 

Add flocked greenery around the outer edge and middle ring, use frosted greenery around the perimeter and add snow-covered berries throughout for some pops of color. 

5. Finishing touches

Time to put the finishing touches on your winter wreath!

You can fill in any excess space with some clipped pieces of eucalyptus; this adds a final bit of texture to the wreath and covers up any bit of base that you don’t want to be seen. 

Fluff your wreath, clip any loose edges, and you’re done!

    You are amazing! Your talent is exceptional! I am going in to my first Christmas making deco mesh/ribbon wreaths for my personal home. I came across one Christmas wreath you had designed and it fits perfectly with my decor. It is the gold and silver with a white reindeer in the middle. Would you direct me on what you used please? If you have any of the supplies in your shop, I would like to purchase those.

    Thank you for taking your time to read my request.
