How to Make a Pumpkin Deco Mesh Wreath
You can get everything you need to make this wreath at Dollar Tree. This post isn’t sponsored, but you all know how much I love Dollar Tree crafts. Maybe someday I will be able to work with them on a project!
Prepare Wreath with Pipe Cleaners
Start by cutting your pipe cleaners in half.
Wrap the pipe cleaner around the wire of the wreath form. I find wrapping it a couple of times holds it well.
Evenly space your pipe cleaners around the wreath. I didn’t add enough at the beginning, but you want to have them about every 1 1/2 – 2 inches along the wire.
Cut Deco Mesh and Ribbon
Next, cut a LOT of strips of deco mesh. I cut them about 6 inches wide. They don’t have to be exact since you will be rolling them up. I find using a rotary cutter, 6-inch wide ruler, and a cutting mat makes this process go as quickly as possible.
I used around 6 rolls of deco mesh, plus 3 rolls of ribbon to fill out this giant pumpkin wreath form. You can add more or less depending on how full you want the finished wreath.
I like to use the wired ribbon, but you can use any type of ribbon, deco mesh, sparkle mesh, or tulle to complete this project.
Add Deco Mesh to the Wreath
Once you have your mesh and ribbon cut out, you will create a stack of the different colors of mesh and ribbon. I use 3 to 4 strips per stack.
Attach them to the wreath form using the pipe cleaners to twist them onto the wreath. Tuck any loose pipe cleaner ends on the backside of the wreath.
Once you have your wreath completely covered, turn the wreath over and push all the deco mesh towards the front side of the wreath. Then, flip the wreath over and fluff the mesh.
Add in more mesh stacks as needed to fill in the wreath completely.
I love that you can customize these wreaths to match any occasion. Dollar Tree has lots of holiday wreath forms for each season.
They really are so fun and easy to make. Plus, the price is right! For the wreath form, deco mesh, ribbon, and pipe cleaners I spent about $11.
A wreath like this would also make a great gift idea.
