Halloween is such a great time to add some sparkle and glitter where you normally wouldn’t. That’s why I went with a Deco Mesh wreath this year. Let me just say, this was my first ever attempt at Deco Mesh and I am so happy with how it turned out. Ever seen the women on YouTube who can just whip one of these wreaths out in like 5 minutes? Yeah, no. I had to revisit it over several days. Deco mesh can be tricky, but I’m so glad I made one. I love it and now that I know how to do it, I will definitely be making more wreaths like this. Here’s what I used:
I roll of 20″ wide Deco mesh (Walmart)
5″ wired ribbon (Walmart)
Black pipe cleaners
Halloween embellishments and floral (Michael’s)
18 inch working wreath (Michael’s)
This is how I started–make poofs with the deco mesh, secure it with the pipe cleaners. Then go over it with a wide ribbon, securing it with the same pipe cleaners. Once I was done, I just tucked the pipe cleaners back behind the wreath.
The embellishments were the fun part for me. I found all of these at Michael’s.
Deco Mesh clings to everything so when I placed something , it stuck the first time. Right where I wanted it.
Once everything was placed where I wanted it, I went back, fluffed up the ribbon, and hung my Halloween wreath!
Once I figured out how to make the mesh behave, it was a fun wreath to make. I’ll definitely be making one again for Christmas. What about you? Have you ever tried making a Deco Mesh wreath?
