Steps on How to Make a Deco Mesh Christmas Wreath
Step 1 – Prepare Deco Mesh
Begin by cutting 12″ long pieces of two types of 10-inch Deco Mesh using a rotary cutter on a clean mat (glue drip free!). I used one roll each of champagne and white. You can stack the Deco Mesh on top of each other to speed up the cutting process.
Note: I like to use a rotary cutter to make the cut cleaner, which helps to prevent some of the unraveling that happens with deco mesh.
Step 2 – Add Deco Mesh
Next, the deco mesh by using the “ruffle technique” and pinching the center of each piece. Do this for three pieces of mesh and secure these three pieces under one of the twist ties. Continue attaching three pieces of deco mesh into each of the twist ties on the wreath until it is filled.
Make sure all the mesh is facing upward and not stuck under a twist tie.
Step 3 – Add the Ribbon
Next, Cut 14″ ribbon strips of each of the four ribbons. I use two that are 2.5″ wide and two that are 1.5″ wide for added interest. Gather two ribbon strips together, one on top of each other, pinch in the middle and attach to the wreath using one of the existing twist ties. I like to alternate the ribbon patterns as I go.
Step 4 – Add the Ornaments
Prepare the larger ornaments by cutting off the hangers and piercing with an awl on each side of the ornament. Then thread through a piece of wire. Use the wire to attach to the wreath frame. I added 3 silver ornaments around the wreath.
Next, add the medium or smaller ornaments. For this it was my champagne colored ornaments. Simply thread wire through the hanger and attach to the wreath frame using the wire.
Tip: Nestle the ornaments in the ribbon and mesh so that they aren’t sitting on top of the wreath.
Step 5 – Add Flowers and Greenery
Now it’s time to add your greenery. Start by cutting apart the greenery stems to separate them out. Then attach in the wreath by adding hot glue to the stems.
For the silk flowers, again, cut apart any stems that are too large and attach to the wreath using hot glue on the stems.
I added the iced twigs next. These will blow in the wind and add beautiful texture to your wreath. Add hot glue to the stems and attach them around the wreath to fill in.
Step 6 – Cleanup the Wreath
Step back, take a look at your wreath and add greenery or twigs to any areas that need to be filled in.
Fluff your ribbon to ensure nothing is laying flat and cut any excess wire sticking out the back.
As a result, an Elegant Deco Mesh Wreath for Christmas.

Hello i have just watched your wreath making tutorial and it was fabulous I sent for all the materials from America and made one or two i adore making them but am not that good t marketing them. Thank you i will watch more later.xx Susan from England.xx
So gorgeous! I do have a question…what was that tool you were using at the end of the video on the greenery and, what can you do instead if you don’t have one?
Absolutely love your video’s! I want to start my own business, part time even though I should be retired I do have to work. So as soon as I have acquired my supplies and tools I am going to give it a shot! Thank you for inspiring me and other’s!
I ‘ve to watch your tutorials! You do such beautiful work. I was wondering while watching this tutorial you seem to have a machine on your desk and at first I thought you were stapling something but them I saw the steel tips on the end of the greenery. What is this called and where did you buy i? I live in Canada and all we have hear is Michael’s so with no competition things are pretty costly. Thanks very much! Nela Mellen Calgary, AB, Canada

How many ties do you use on the double wreath to tie the mesh?
Extremely beautiful. And those are the colors on my tree this year, plus pale pink. Thank you.
I thought you referred to a company called Trending Tree but I do not see it referenced.
Oh my!!! First of all, to take the time to show us step by step the placement of every bulb, pick and flower was truly an early Christmas present. You are so very talented and you have a great eye for placement, and a knack for picking the right combination of mesh, ribbon, flowers and best of all colors! Your wreaths are so beautifully abundant without going overboard. I’ve always wanted to try deco mesh but didn’t know where to start. Now thanks to you, I’m ready!!!
Thank you! Merry Christmas.
When you were working in your florals you put them inside something and pushed a handle down. What is the equipment and why did you use it? Does the fuse two picks together at the stem? Thank you for all your videos, as I am a newbie to wreath making.
It puts a steel pick on my stems. You can learn more about stemming machines here https://southerncharmwreaths.com/steel-pick-machine/
I love watching your videos! I would love to make this exact wreath. Does it come in a kit to purchase?
Yes it was a kit inside of our wreath of the Month club. But I’ve listed thesupplies in the description above and you can purchase from Trendy Tree
What is the machine that you use to put the ends on your greenery before you put them in the glue for the wreath? Where do you purchase one ?
where do you get those twist ties?
