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.
