How to Make a Summer Deco Mesh Wreath with Two Colors

Step 1 – Lay out your work wreath form. Begin by making 10″ long poofs with sections of the Deco Mesh. Attach the sections to the wreath using the twist ties located in the inner ring of the work wreath form. Then move to the outer ring and do the same. Because the mesh is thin, go back around the outer ring again adding more mesh. Cut the Deco Mesh off of the roll when finished.

Step 2 – Next, cut 20″ strips from the yellow 10″ mesh and add using the ruffle technique (see video below). Go around the inner and outer rings. 

Step 3 – Cut ribbon into 14″ long pieces. Layer the different widths together, fold them, pinch in the center and add to twist ties. Alternate the color patterns throughout.

Step 4 – To prepare the sign, first cut off the existing hanger. Hot glue wire to the back and attach the sign to the wreath using the wire.

Step 5 – Make a funky bow with multiple spring ribbons using 12″ loops. Attach the bow using wire when done.

Step 6 – Lastly, add silk flowers. I cut pieces from a pre-made spring wreath. Attach them into the wreath with hot glue and using a Steel Pick machine to make it easier to keep the pieces together and insert them into the wreath.

My finished wreath measures 28″ x 28″ x 12″ and sold for $187 in my Etsy shop.

This wreath may be a little more advanced but those who are just getting started but for an easier option, you can stop after adding the ribbon or the sign. Find a sign you love for summer and use that as your inspiration for the Deco Mesh and ribbon colors. Have fun!

    Love the Welcome summer sign, but don’t see it on Trendy Tree. Is that where you purchased it?

    Hello, simply beautiful wreath. I have a question, why do my ribbon s seem to want to stand up instead of out like yours? I try to curl them down and out but most times it doesn’t work. Thank you, Debbie from Cheektowaga, NY

    • Julie Siomacco on May 21, 2019 at 1:40 pm

      Not sure, I definitely pull them up and out especially before taking my photos. Make sure to use quality ribbon too where the wire it a little thicker.
