Easy Deco Mesh And Ribbon Fall Wreath ~ This wreath is super fun and super easy wreath to make! I have to admit I love creating with deco mesh and any kind of wired ribbon. Both materials are really easy to work with because they can be shaped, stretched and fluffed pretty well into any shape and you want.
I also came across a wreath frame specifically designed for working with burlap and in this project deco mesh. It has two layers of a sturdy wire frame and ties attached making it really easy to wrap and secure the deco mesh around the frame. I also really like that this wreath was super light in terms of weight making it quite adaptable where you want to hang it.
Here are the step-by-step instructions for making this…
Easy Deco Mesh And Ribbon Fall Wreath
- 12-inch (30 cm) wide orange deco mesh (about 16 ft. or 5m)
- 2-½ inch (6.3 cm) wide wired brown ribbon for weaving through the deco mesh (about 7 ft. or 2.5m)
- 2 ½ inch (30 cm) wide coordinating wired sheer ribbon (about 12 ft. or 3.6m)
- wire wreath frame with ties
- orange and brown thread and sewing needle
Step 1 – Deco Mesh
Wrap the deco mesh loosely around the wreath frame. I started with the larger frame, which will be the front of the frame. I pulled the deco mesh around the frame supports, secured with the ties. As I worked around the frame I loosely twisted the mesh to create a billowing effect. Follow the same technique with the smaller frame, which will be the back of the wreath.
After I did this I found the frame did not look as full as I wanted so I decided to add another layer of deco mesh. I flipped the frame over and worked from the back. This time I folded the deco mesh in half lengthwise and pulled it through the frame. I didn’t twist it but loosely pulled it out to add to the billowing effect.
You will also notice that I started and ended the deco mesh in the same location creating the top of the wreath and where the big bow will be attached.
Step 2 – Brown Ribbon
Starting at the top of the wreath weave the ribbon through the loosely secured deco mesh. Turn or twist the ribbon randomly as you are working it through the mesh. End at the top of the wreath.
Step 3 – Securely Attaching The Deco Mesh And Brown Ribbon
Attach the deco mesh and ribbon in different locations with a little slip stitch and a knot using needle and thread. I found this was worth the extra effort to pull the deco mesh in places together where it was too loose and over the ties that were still showing. It also further secured the brown ribbon to the deco mesh.
Step 4 – Wired Sheer Ribbon Bow
Attach the bow at the top of the wreath and have the ends drape down the middle. I created a detailed photo tutorial showing How To Make A Big Double Bow Photo Tutorial that you can click here. These instructions are for a larger double bow but I used the same technique to make the bow for this wreath.
Step 5 – Wreath Hanger
Make a hanger with about 25 inches (0.6 m) of the brown ribbon and loop it through the smaller wire frame at the top of the wreath. Use a slipstitch with the needle and thread to close the loop.
That is it! That is how to make an easy deco mesh and ribbon fall wreath!
