Are you a wreath person? I didn’t use to be but I’ve grown to love them. Read on to see how easy it is to put together a statement-making Deco Mesh Winter Wreath.
You saw this Winter Wreath Tuesday in my post about my Simple Winter Porch, but today I’m showing you exactly how I made it. I lucked out that the day I went for wreath supplies, all Deco Mesh, Ribbon, and Holiday floral sprigs were 50% off, plus I had a 40% off coupon for the wreath form so it only cost me around $20 total!
It actually took Deco Mesh wreaths a while to grow on me but I’ve really come to love them.
Here are the supplies I used:
- One Wire Wreath Form (I used the medium size and it still gets pretty huge once all the Deco Mesh is on there)
- One roll 21″ Deco Mesh in Metallic White
- One roll 21″ Deco Mesh in Metallic Silver
- One 15ft roll wired ribbon, Teal & White Stripe
- One sprig red glittery twigs
- One bunch teal poinsettias
- Two sprigs of the twigs with silver berries
- White Floral Wire
- Floral Wire Cutters
First I gathered all my supplies. I cut the floral wire into roughly 4-inch pieces (I didn’t measure, I just eyeballed it).
Do you see how the wreath form has 3 sections and crossbars?
I started by attaching the Silver Deco Mesh along the middle “lane” securing with a few inches of white floral wire at each crossbar, until I got all the way around. At this point, my wreath looked as it appears below.
For the second layer, I used the white Deco Mesh. For this layer, you weave back and forth, attaching at each crossbar as shown below.
So now you have two layers complete as in the top left image in the below pic. Now, you do a third and final layer with the white mesh weaving to the opposite sides of layer two. Then I did a similar pattern with the striped ribbon.
Then, I used floral wire to attach all the floral pieces (trimming down some of the stems with my floral wire cutters). I like using the wire to attached everything so I can easily change out what is on the wreath.
Finally, I tied a ribbon at the top of the wreath for hanging. I love how the metallic Deco Mesh and shimmery parts of the poinsettias sparkle in the morning sunlight (on the rare sunny days we get over the winter, anyway!).
