Assembling Your Fall Deco Mesh Wreath
Step 1 – Before you start on the wreath, cut nine 13″ streamers of each ribbon with dovetail ends, and set them off to the side.
Step 2 – Now we will start putting the deco mesh on the work wreath. Start with your main roll of mesh, making 10″ loops all the way around the inside rung. Secure each loop with the twist tie arms on the wreath frame. Once you make it all the way around, just slide the mesh down to secure on the outside rung, and work around it the same way.
Then, if you’re adding an accent mesh, you’ll cut it into strips with your rotary cutter and accordion fold each one in the middle, securing with the same twist tie arms. Place strips in around the whole wreath until it looks nice and even.
Step 3 – Next, bring out your ribbon streamers and you’ll start adding them into the wreath in pairs. Try and make sure you mix up your ribbon combinations so it’s not the same ones paired together each time and you don’t end up with big patches of the same color.
Attach the ribbon in the same way you attached the accent deco mesh. Accordion fold them in the middle, and twist tie them onto the base.
Step 4 – Now we get to add our sign! This is the focal point, but we didn’t put it on first this time because we don’t want it to get covered by all the mesh and ribbon. Just attach a piece of floral wire to each end on the back of the wreath, and then secure it tightly to the work wreath.
Step 5 – Use a piece of rustic wire to add a hanger to the back. I’ll link a tutorial at the bottom of this post for you on how I make my wreath hangers.
Step 6 – Next, cut up your filler bushes into individual stems, and start gluing those into the twist ties on the work wreath. Make sure it catches those twist ties instead of just ribbon and mesh to make sure it stays put.
Step 7 – Now go in and add a few flowers wherever your wreath needs a pop of color or a little more texture. Try to space them out around the whole wreath to give it a nice even finished look.

Fall Deco Mesh Wreath Tutorial
Hi, gorgeous, gorgeous wreath!!! what kind of hot glue pot are you using? is it a hot glue skillet? Also, what kind of machine were you using when doing the leaves; looked like you were maybe adding a metal spike? Thanks so much for the tutorial. You were excellent!
I’m using a regular skillet. It’s about $8 at Walmart. It’s a steel pick machine. I have info on my blog http://www.southerncharmwreaths.com
I haven’t made one yet and live in Hawaii.
Hello…where did you get the deco mesh with the white cotton look? I’m from North Augusta, SC…shoot me an email and let me know where you get your stuff. Thanks!!
How long is the one you just cut?
Hey Carol – Julie says for the stems just measure with your heart. It will vary wreath to wreath!
