Multi-Mix Wreath

This beautiful wreath was created by simply tying burlap, geo mesh, ribbon, and tulle onto a wire wreath form.

Crafted by Ann.

Supplies

  • 12" Wire Wreath Form
  • 1 Roll of Geo Mesh in White
  • 1 Roll of Wired-Edge Pink Ribbon
  • 1 Roll of Wired-Edge Burlap Ribbon
  • 1 Roll of Brown Tulle
  • 1 Roll of Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

1.  Cut the Geo Mesh into seven 9" W x 17" L strips. Tie the geo mesh in the areas that are shown below in the diagram.

2.  Cut the wired-edge burlap into 15" L strips. Tie them to the areas that are shown below in the diagram.

3.  Cut the wired-edge ribbon into 15" L strips. Tie them  to the areas that are shown below in the diagram.

4.  Cut the tulle into 24" L strips. Fold the strip in half, then tie them in all the open areas of the wreath.
5.  Cut the ribbon into 15" L strips. Tie them where you see fit. 
6.  Use the scissors to give the wreath a trim if you see areas that are uneven.

To make this into an Easter-themed wreath, tie a small stuffed bunny to the wreath. Avoid gluing it so that you can remove the bunny at any time. Write "Hoppy Easter" using a chalk ink marker on a wooden chalkboard tag and tie it to the top inside of the wreath. If you cannot find a wooden tag, you can create a paper tag or use another item.

7.  Give your wreath a good fluffing and proudly display in an area of your home.

  6. This is my first wreath to make and I am trying to do this one but the mesh keeps fraying when I cut it and especially after I tie it to the form. Do you have any tips to help me with this?
