Outside Mesh Wreath

 

  • Purchase a wire  wreath form from a craft supply store.
  • Using floral wire cut three 6 inch  strings per section of wreath form.
  • Tie the strings in the form of a triangle on the section.  Two on the outer edge.  One on the inside of the section.
  • Buy floral mesh from  a craft supply store.
  • Using the mesh gather it in large sections and tie off on the wreath form.  Go around one edge first and then fill in the center afterwards.
  • Fluff the mesh so it puffs.
  • Cut 6 inch strings of the floral wire and secure unbreakable Christmas balls around the rim.  Four or five medium balls should do.
  • Make a bow using these instructions.
  • Secure bow to rim off the wreath and cut off edges.
  • Re-fluff the mesh so that it is even around the form\
