Deco mesh wreaths are a great way to make a large, fun decoration for your front door. This deco mesh wreath tutorial is different than others because it uses a foam wreath form rather than a wire wreath form. I personally feel like a foam wreath is easier to work with, and is typically less expensive.Foam wreath forms can be found at any crafting retailer, along with deco mesh and floral pins. When I found patriotic red, white and blue deco mesh at the craft store, I knew it would make the perfect Fourth of July wreath!
Deco Mesh Wreath Tutorial
This deco mesh wreath is super simple to create. Start with the foam wreath form, deco mesh and floral pins. It helps to open and dump out the floral pins so they are easy to grab. Unravel the deco mesh and then start bunching it so that it forms a round-looking bubble. Then pin it to the wreath form using a floral pin at the base of the “bubble.” I alternated the direction that I bunched, toward the outside first and then toward the inside, to give the deco mesh wreath an even look. I worked my way around the wreath and spaced my pins out by about 3″ initially. Once I was finished, I went back through and sporadically added more pins to better shape the mesh.
This time, I added white deco mesh that I had on hand around the inside and outside of the wreath form. For my last finishing touch I pinned on a small American flag.
I love how big and festive a deco mesh wreath is! It’s the perfect eye candy for anyone’s front door this summer!
