Spring Geo Mesh Wreath

You don't need to wait until March to enjoy the vibrant colors of Spring!

Crafted by Cheryl.

Supplies

  • 1 Roll of Geo Mesh
  • Wire Wreath Form
  • Chenille Pipe Cleaners
  • Artificial Flowers
  • Wired Ribbon
  • Scissors

This is what a wire wreath form looks like and it is what you will need for this project.

Wire Wreath Form

1.  Using the scissors, cut the chenille stems in half.
2.  Open the roll of mesh and starting at the beginning, gather a section to make a large pouf.
3.  Starting from the outer ring, use the pipe cleaner to tie it (using a twist action) to secure it to the wire wreath form.
Do not actually tie the pipe cleaner into a knot because it will be harder to untie if you need to redo or remove the mesh.

4.  Now, tie another pouf onto the inner part of the wire wreath form.
You will repeat a pattern of tying the mesh poufs to the outside ring, then inner ring until it's complete covered or when you have used all the mesh (whichever comes first).
Do not worry about how the poufs look or if you have any bare spots as you go along. When you are finished, you will go back to move and fluff the mesh. Remember, you can always remove the pipe cleaners and redo any area (or the entire wreath) if the desired look has not been achieved.
When you are done, decorate it with flowers by sliding it through the mesh. Then, finish it off with ribbon. The ribbon used for this wreath is wired, making it easy to form waves and curls.
