There’s something about a wreath on the front door that makes a home feel welcoming. I enjoy decorating for the season, so a Christmas Wreath was a must. This wire mesh Christmas Wreath is easy to make, festive and easy to tweak each year.
- Wire Wreath Form with Ties
- Wire Mesh (I used 1.5 rolls)
- Wire Ribbon
- Decorations (sprigs, berries, etc.)
Start by using the ties on the wreath form to gather the wire mesh on the outside ring of the wreath. Be sure to fluff as you go and to make sure each section is the same size. To make the wreath fuller, rotate each section to the outside of the ring. Secure the ties tightly so you can use them for the second layer.
After finishing the outside ring of the wreath, move into the inside ring, again rotating each section of mesh to the outside of the ring. Once that is complete, move back to the outer ring and repeat the steps, moving each section to the inside of the ring. This will help the wreath look fuller, especially with the transparent mesh.
Next, use the smaller wire ribbon to add accent to the wreath and to also fill in any gaps. I used a zig-zag pattern, switching between the inner and outer rings.
To finish the project, I added berries and flowers. It helped to fill out the wreath (since I used the ties to secure all of the mesh and ribbon) and also added some pizazz. These extra decorations are also easy to switch out if I want to update the color scheme in the future.
