DIY Deco Mesh Rustic Valentine’s Day Wreath Steps
Step 1 – Attach Deco Mesh
Begin by cutting Deco Mesh into 20-inch sections. Ruffle each section of the Deco Mesh pieces, pinch in the center and then attach onto wreath base by twisting the branches of the wreath base around it.
Step 2 – Add Ribbon
Cut 14-inch strips of ribbon and attach onto the wreath base by twisting the branches around it and separate in an X shape. Tip: I like to layer two pieces of ribbon on top of each other to add more dimension and interest.
Step 3 – Add Plush Hearts
Remove the hangers and tags. Use the wire hanger you just removed or florist wire to pierce through the back of the heart and thread through. Then use that wire to attach the hearts to the wreath base.
Step 4 – Make a Bow
Next, make a bow. I made a Funky Bow using three different ribbons and 12-inch loops.
Secure the bow to the base with florist wire.
Step 5 – Fill In with Silk Flowers
Trim long stems from flower bunches and hot glue flowers onto wreath base.
Step 6– Finish
Add additional greenery pieces, pinecones, etc. that you want to fill in your wreath. This adds dimension to your wreath and also helps to hide the base. Simply separate each piece from the main stem, trim stems as needed and hot glue to the base.
The result is a beautiful DIY Rustic Valentine’s Wreath for your door!

You can customize this to go with your colors and décor. If you find something fun to put on your wreath instead of the hearts that I had, go for it! That is the fun part of making something yourself, you get to make it yours.
