EASY Deco Mesh Fall Wreath Tutorial

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors of fall, the weather, and when the tree's leaves change colors.  This year I decided to rush fall in by pulling out my fall decorations.
  (Yes, it is mind over matter....since it is still in the 90's here.)
This year I wanted to put a fall wreath on my front door.   When I saw a wreath for 4th of July made out of deco mesh, I knew that is what I was going to do for fall.

 Today I am going to show you how to make an EASY Deco Mesh Wreath. It really is basic....and if I can do it, you can too!







What you will need:



-Deco Mesh Ribbon (Fall Colors)
-Wire Floral Wreath
-Pipe Cleaners
-Wire Ribbon (Fall Colors)
-Accessories for your wreath 


1. First, you will need your wire wreath and pipe cleaners. Your pipe cleaners will secure the deco mesh onto the wreath.




2.  Secure your deco mesh onto the wreath, starting on the outside.




3. Make a poofy (full) loop with the deco mesh and secure with a pipe cleaner.
(remember to secure the pipe cleaner onto the wire wreath first)




4. Continue around the wreath and put a loop at each section.  Once you go around, you will then start your next color.  It will be secured on the inside of the wreath.



Securing firmly....




5. Now that your wreath is done, you will add the accessories.



6. I love Monogram letters, so I bought a natural letter, and I am going to show you how to add glitter to make it fabulous.

For this, you will need spray adhesive.  I found it at Hobby Lobby with all of the glue.



Spray your letter liberally with glue, and shake glitter onto the letter.



Shake off any excess.  The next step may seem strange.....but it sets the glitter onto the letter and gives it a nice shine.




Take your hairspray and spray it over the letter.


7. Now while your letter is drying, you can add the accessories to your wreath.  There are so many ways that you can do this.....I just made loops and added them at various holes throughout the wreath. Securing with the pipe cleaners that are holding the deco mesh.




Then you can add fall berries and such.....make it uniquely yours.


Voila........ you now have a EASY fall wreath for your door!








No, it's not perfect, and there is a few things I would have done different......but I have the satisfaction of saying that I did it!  And as you go along, you will learn what works and what doesn't for you too.




Happy Fall Everyone!

  3. That is a cool looking wreath! I wish I could make stuff like that, but I'm just not very crafty.(although my husband says I am - somehow I think we're talking about 2 different things. LOL)

  9. This can be a huge 1 for ones Vemma Video Review organization. Search engines paid out 1. 6 Million dollars regarding Facebook lots of years back again. They've already expended a lot of income due to this program regarding multiple motives.
