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!

What is the name of your shop on Etsy
Southern Charm Wreaths
Love the Welcome summer sign, but don’t see it on Trendy Tree. Is that where you purchased it?
I don’t think so and now can’t recall. Did you check TheWreathShop.com?
I just found the sign at Walmart.com! Loved the class!
She is a beautiful girl but what is really beautiful she loves JESUS
Yes, thank you!
Beautiful. I look for new ideas and suggestions for making wreaths. Going to try this one.
Julie, the wreath is beautiful…Is the first mesh a light pink?
Yes or coral color.
Hi! Love the post. Had a question too— I’d purchased the wreath making book a while ago and when I went to download it again, it asked for password (which I gave) but then kept saying invalid and email not found etc.
I’d like to refer to the method on making the spring/coiled version (where you cut the deco mesh in 10” widths etc) but I cannot access. Just the link to that section would be Ok for now. Thank you!
You;ll need to contact us here.
Julie. sorry for a 2nd comment/question… do you sell this particular wreath as a kit? Thanks
No. I don’t sell supplies.
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
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.
I watched this video today on Utube while you were making the Summer Deco Wreath…
MY GOSH, Girl….now THAT is a wreath !!!
You inspired me, for sure!
I love how you worked the florals in it…AMAZING!
Beautiful! I also love to watch how you work in the flowers. A work of art for sure!
I absolutely love this wreath. I agree with you when you said to make them and enjoy them yourself, even if no one else does. I have sold a few to my co workers, but finally sold a couple at my garage sale to my neighbor. Many customers said they were beautiful but didn’t buy them. I kept wondering if my price was too high ($40) thoughts?
Julie watched your video tonight doing the summer wreath which is beautiful but I think that big yellow flower sticks out to much, but you are the professional not me.
Hi Julie. I’m new here and I love your designs. I have enjoyed learning from you.
Julie you totally inspire me constantly! Please keep the deco mesh comming!! I love to see how you take the base product & turn it into a work of art with clever use of embellishments & little, simple extras. Sooooo… more fancy deco art wreaths gets my vote!! ?
