How to Make a Deco Mesh Valentines Wreath
Hey y’all! Today we’re going back to my roots and making a Deco Mesh wreath for Valentine’s Day. (Did you know one of the things that kicked off my business was this Deco Mesh Ebook?) We’re layering in lots of pinks and reds and a lot of different textures in this wreath and I just love how it turned out.
This project is also a great example of layering your work. You could actually stop after any step and have a beautiful wreath. Don’t like silk flowers? Don’t add them. Prefer it without the sign? Forget it! Don’t be afraid to play around with it and find your style. I’ll show you every step that I took to make this wreath, and you go make it your own.
Let’s get started!

SUPPLIES FOR THE DECO MESH VALENTINES WREATH
24” Work wreath (wholesale)
10” Deco mesh
Silk Flowers (wholesale)
Hot glue pan and hot glue
STEPS FOR MAKING A DECO MESH VALENTINES WREATH
Step 1 – Go around the work wreath and open up the twist ties so you can easily tie on the deco mesh. Tuck in the end of your deco mesh into one set of ties and twist to secure. Then measure 10” of mesh, pinch together, and secure at the next set of twist ties. Continue working around the wreath this way until you get back around to the beginning. Then create a bridge from the inner ring to the outer ring and duplicate the steps on the outer ring as you did the inner ring. Then to make sure the wreath is nice and full and you can’t see the frame, create a third row by adding the mesh to the outer ring one more time. Then just snip off the end and tuck it underneath one of the loops.
Step 2 – Now we’ll add the ribbon. I precut a stack of ribbon pieces that were about 13” long. Then, for every other set of stems, I pinched together two pieces of ribbon in the middle and attached them to the wreath.
Step 3 – Next we’ll add on a sign. You’ll have to staple 4 pipe cleaners on the back of this sign due to the size, one in each corner, and that’s how you’ll attach it to the wreath base. Make sure you have the pipe cleaners wrapped around the actual metal frame of the wreath, not the mesh, so that it stays secure.
Step 4 – Now for the flowers. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. Choose flowers that you think go well with your wreath and hot glue them onto the wreath in a way that you think looks beautiful. If you like how my wreath looks, start by gluing in the lavender around the outside. Then add in the red geraniums closer to the sign to draw the eye in. Then add in some of the smaller pink blossoms and some leftover greenery to finish out the wreath.
And that’s all there is to it!

Do you have a tutorial on how to make the swag that is over the door. It is beautiful, I am looking to make one.
Yes, in our Wreath of the Month Club portal
Where did you get the red pipe cleaner?
I am just starting out. I have dabbled with a few methods but have not made a complete one because I live in the country and it takes an hour and a half to get to the local craft store. We have a Walmart, Dollar General, Dollar Store but they don’t have much there. I have ordered online some supplies to start making a few wreaths. I see your supply list of the mesh wreaths but it does not say how many rolls of mesh to buy, ribbons, and what kind of ribbon to use.
I love your wreaths and the sray over the door is gorgeous

I absolutely admire your talent Julie! Everything you design is incredible and I am so honored to be a charmer!
Beautiful Julie! Update for those watching a couple of years later, 5th Street Studio now has a website in addition to their Etsy shop. I have purchased from them many times, they have great quality unique products.
I love this Valentines Day wreath!
Beautiful wreath. Love that you used most of the mesh – making 3 laps around the wreath. Really helps to hid those empty spots.
My name is Darla, I am now retired and I happened to see you on t.v. one day. I am creative and love making just about anything, I love your creative style. Everything you touch turns out so beautiful. I had my own floral shop about 20 years ago. After my husband had a heart attack, it scared me so much that I decided to go back to college at the age of 46. I hadn’t been in school for 24 years, never thought I would be able to keep up with the new system for education. I went for 3 1/2 years and graduated with 3.9 GPA, with honors and lol was the class President for 2 of those years. After graduating, I went straight to work in Radiology, one year later I studied for Mammography and remained there for my 17 years before I retired. I’m not trying to brag , my point is I was brought up with a saying my Daddy used to say to me. “Where there is a will, there is a way” I live by those words. I had been thinking about opening another business, was only thinking about it. Then one day you said those words on t.v. and I thought you were actually speaking them to me. “Where there is a will, there is a Way” I decided right then and there, I will start that business. I only wanted to thank you for your words of encouragement to everyone who watches your shows. You are certainly a true Blessing and your light shines very bright. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
