How to make a holly jolly wreath
1. Add deco mesh poufs
Your first step is to make your deco mesh poufs.
Start by folding three inches of mesh, then gather it together between your red twist ties. Twist to attach, then zip tie to secure. This will give you a clean, smooth edge from all angles!
Next, measure 10” for a deco mesh poof, twisting to secure it in the next set of twist ties.
Continue around the top layer, then again around the bottom layer.
Remember to separate your deco mesh once it’s added for a poofy effect!
2. Include ribbon tails
Next up, the ribbons!
Gather 13” cuts of all 4 types of ribbon.
Then, start by laying a polka dot ribbon over a red and green felt ribbon. Pinch at the center and twist into a set of red twist ties, pulling the ribbons apart to form an “X.”
Repeat this at the next twist tie, this time using a striped ribbon on top of your diagonal striped ribbon.
Alternate ribbons around your top and bottom wreath layers.
4. Add your holly jolly sign
To attach your holly jolly sign, simply add a little piece of cardboard to each corner on the backside.
Lay florist wire pieces over each corner, stapling them to the cardboard and securing them with a dab of hot glue.
To secure your sign to the wreath, simply stick your wires through the form and twist them to the red twist ties.
5. Use touches of greenery
For a bit of natural greenery, begin adding small clippings of pine throughout your wreath, securing them with hot glue.
Then, repeat with sparkly white fern for a wintery element!
Ensure all greenery is evenly distributed through the top and bottom layers of the wreath for balance and visual appeal.
6. Top off with Christmas baubles
Finish your design with a few red Christmas baubles evenly spaced throughout the top layer of your wreath. Remember to secure them with hot glue and aim for symmetry.
And with a few finishing tweaks, your holly jolly wreath is complete!
