As I mentioned the other day in my post, Crochet and Knitting Olympic Style, I have been on an Olympic craft spree lately. This past weekend I created this really fun wreath from a wire wreath frame and deco mesh that I bought at Hobby Lobby. This is the easiest project and can be made in less than an hour.
To make a wreath like this you will need:
- 16 inch wire wreath frame
- 1 roll 21 inch wide deco mesh
- 1roll 5 1/2 inch wide deco mesh
- 1 roll wire edge ribbon
- pipe cleaners to match your deco mesh
- Wrap 21 inch deco mesh around frame using pipe cleaners to secure every 5 or 6 inches leaving the mesh kind of full to hide the pipe cleaners. When you make it all the way around to the place where you started overlap the beginning a little and secure to the back the end – you will have to cut the deco mesh
- Use the 5 1/2 inch wide deco mesh in between the previous wider layers – this layer I just secured at the beginning and end with pipe cleanrers
- Make a bow with your wire edge ribbon – (I am not the greatest bow maker so I am not going to tell you how to make your bow). Secure bow to wreath using a pipe cleaner or some type of floral wire
That’s it – All Done! Super EASY! I really like how it turned out and I have had it up all week to show my Olympic spirit. I will also be able to use it for other holidays like Memorial Day and 4th of July. I have quite a bit of the deco mesh left so I figure I can use it to make another wreath or decorate my patio out back for the holidays I just mentioned.
I am thinking this deco mesh would also make a fun St. Patricks Day wreath.
