For an easy deco mesh wreath, attach the mesh at several points around a wire wreath frame with pipe cleaners. The deco mesh needs slack between the pipe cleaner attachment points to create a puffy look.Continue Reading
The wreath requires two rolls of coordinating deco mesh. Many wreaths use one patterned roll and one plain roll in a color that matches the pattern. The pipe cleaners should match the deco mesh so they aren't noticeable in the finished wreath.
Attach the pipe cleaners first by twisting around the wire at the middle of the pipe cleaner. The two ends of the pipe cleaner should stick up. Wire wreath forms have outer and inner rings. The deco mesh wreath requires pipe cleaners on both spaced about 6 to 10 inches apart.
Twist one of the attached inner-ring pipe cleaners around the end of one roll of deco mesh. Move down the length of deco mesh about 10 to 12 inches. Puff the deco mesh slightly and attach it to the next pipe cleaner along the inner ring of the wreath form. Continue around the inner ring of the wreath before moving to the outer ring. Repeat with the second color of deco mesh, arranging the mesh so it rests next to the first color instead of directly on top.
Add ribbon, decorative picks and other decorations to the wreath. Pipe cleaners work to hold the decorations in place.Learn more about Interior Decorating
