Plum Crazy may earn commissions on links for products or services we are recommending. The first time I saw a deco mesh wreath was when we went to Walter’s Pumpkin Patch. I also thought to myself “wow, that’s a lot of money” for a wreath made of mesh! It was around Christmas time when I had seen a few of the burlap wreaths floating around on some blogs with what seemed like easy instructions.
So, I tried making it – got frustrated and wound up with a mesh wreath that looked nothing like what the bloggers were presenting. After much searching I came across a video that caught my eye because the wreaths were exactly what I was trying to do but the way the crafter was making them was much different.
Choose and open the first color mesh you will be working with and gather the end of it and then tie it on the inner part of the wire wreath with the attached pipe cleaner. (If your wire frame does not come with some kind of tie or pipe cleaner, you will need to get these as well).
So make sure you check your work after a few bunchings, there will need to be some trial and error.
The money I saved was also worth the trouble – the wreath I was eyeing up was $34.99, I think in total the supplies I needed just for this product was under $10 with the sale Hobby Lobby was having and a coupon I had.
