I first started making wreaths when I was 18 yo (way longer than I care to admit) and I find it therapeutic. It doesn’t matter the season, but I always have a handmade wreath on the front door and love to make them for my Sisters as well. If you look in the basement where I store Seasonal items you might even think I have a slight obsession with wreaths! But there could be worse things right? I was at the Dollar Store and saw some really silver pretty deco mesh that went perfectly with a silver ribbon I picked up at the craft store. Here is the wreath I made:
Here is what I used:
Make A Silver Deco Mesh Christmas Wreath
The great thing about this wreath is no hot glue is needed! Just start with the solid silver deco mesh and wrap the wreath form so you don’t see any green. Unfortunately, I made this for my sister and didn’t take a photo of this step, but I do have one that I did in another color:
Next, gather the solid ribbon and place it on top of the wreath form using chenille stems to attach it at about every 4″. Don’t tie the stem closed all the way as you will be using it to attach the poinsettia ribbon as well. I don’t really follow any rules with deco mesh. It is incredibly forgiving and you really just wrap and twist the ribbon in and out of the form working it into a bubble shape until you are happy with the look. If it is not full enough, add more. That is one of the things I like about making wreaths-there are no mistakes!
If you haven’t worked with deco mesh before, give it a try. It really is one of the easiest types of wreath to make and you can get it really inexpensive at all the after Christmas sales. I plan to pick up red to make a Valentine’s Day one! Enjoy all the other beautiful wreaths and be sure to stop back tomorrow for Day 10!
