How to Make a Deco Mesh Valentine Wreath
In today’s video, we’re creating a Deco Mesh Valentine Wreath for Your door. Deco Mesh is still super popular and I like it because it adds a BIG fun punch of color and whimsy to your door. Seriously, this wreath will be seen from down the street and you will be the envy of your neighbors with this hanging on your door. Here’s how to make it:

- 21″ Deco Mesh with foil
- 2.5″ Wired Ribbon Red Hearts
- 2.5″ Wired Ribbon Silver
- 1.5″ Wired Ribbon Red Black Plaid
- 1.5″ Wired Ribbon Black and White Stripe
- 4″ Glitter Tinsel Ornaments
- 2″ Silver Pencil Ball Ties
- Sign for center piece (Hobby Lobby)
- Florist Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Pipe Cleaners
- Hot glue gun
- glue sticks
- craft mat
How to Make a Deco Mesh Valentine Wreath for Your Door
- Prepare your wreath form if needed. Very rarely, the twist ties are not tight and you have to use needle nose pliers and hot glue to secure them in place.
- Secure the deco mesh into the needle ties and measure out 10″ long loops to secure to the next set of needle ties. Make sure to pleat the mesh before putting into the needle ties.
- I prefer to work with the inner ring first and then the outer ring.
- Once I’ve attached the deco mesh to the inner ring, I create a ‘bridge’ by pulling it tight to the outer ring and securing.
- I measure out 10″ long loops and secure it in each needle tie on the outer ring.
- Once I’ve gone all the way around the wreath, I then go back and do the same thing on the outer ring but this time, I don’t measure but use enough mesh to fill in any gaps between the inner and outer ring. I untwist the outer ring need ties and place more mesh inside and twist them back again.
- Attach the sign using florist wire. This sign had wire already on the back and used that to secure my florist wire. Center the sign in the middle of the wreath. I use the sign to help me choose which colors to use for the ribbon. If you need help choosing colors for your wreaths, you have to read this.
- Cut ribbon streamers with each ribbon pattern 13″ long and then dove tail the ends to give a finished look.
- Match a set of ribbon streamers and place inside each needle tie. You can choose to untwist them if needed but it’s not necessary. Alternate the ribbon going around the entire wreath. You can find another video on using ribbon streamers with deco mesh HERE.
- Add a wreath hanger using a pipe cleaner.
- Pierce the 4″ ornaments with an awl and feed a pipe cleaner into the center. I do this so that I can wire the ornament onto the wreath. Wire these ornaments in-between the mesh of the inner and outer ring on the cross bars of the metal frame (not the mesh). You can then move the mesh around the ornament to give a nestled appearance.
- Use the 2″ ornament ties and secure them in every other needle tie on the outer ring. You can also add two sets on the inner ring.
- Move the mesh behind the sign so that you can see the heart shape.
