Note from Laurie: My friend Cheree put together this super cute fall wreath. Such a fun way to fluff up your front door for fall, and you can swap it out with other colors of ribbon and decor for other seasons of the year!
I have wanted to make a deco mesh fall wreath for a long time, but honestly, I was a bit intimidated. Then a sweet friend showed me how and it was much easier than I anticipated!
Here are the supplies you'll need to make a DIY Fall Deco Mesh Wreath:
- 16 or 18 inch wire wreath OR 18 inch wire wreath form with twists (this will make the project a little easier)
- chenille stems
- 3 coordinating color rolls of 5 1/2 inch deco mesh rolls (I used 4, but it made it more complicated to keep up with the color order) 🙂
- 1 roll 1 1/2 inch wired ribbon
- some sort of cute stem to add for dimension (totally optional)
- wooden sign, monogram or other creative piece to hang from the middle
- wire cutters
- hot glue gun
Cut 24, 9 inch lengths of deco mesh of EACH color. You might need more or less depending on the size of your wreath.
For each section of the wire wreath, twist on 6 chenille stems (3 on bottom and 3 on upper rings).
Or use a wire wreath that already includes the twists (that's what I used and then added a few chenille stems as needed).
Next, take all 3 of your 9 inch deco mesh strips and sort of roll them inward and stack together. Don't stress over this part, it is so forgiving once you start adding all the deco mesh to the wreath.
Place your rolled pieces in the center of the chenille stem and tightly twist the stem to secure the mesh. Repeat until the whole wreath is filled.
My wreath wasn't as full as I wanted, so I made 4 bows out of some cute wired ribbon I had on hand. I just randomly placed those where the wreath sort of looked bare. You could use something similar to this.
Now, cut all of your chenille stems off being careful to not cut too close to the deco mesh or it might unwind. I suggest using wire cutters for this if you have them.
Next, add a fun floral stem if you want. Be sure to secure it with some hot glue so it will stay put!
Finally, add a cute sign or monogram.
I was able to weave a chenille stem through my sign and secure it to the wire wreath.
This was such a fun wreath!! I'm so excited because there are so many cute ideas using deco mesh and now I know it's really not all that hard. If you make a similar fall wreath I'd love to see your pictures ~ share them on the PPP Facebook page when you're done!
