How to make a Christmas mesh wreath?
Before we begin creating, let’s gather all we need to make the best red sparkly deco mesh wreath!
What you will need:
- 14” metal wreath form
- 3 packages of red decorative mesh
- a package of white decorative mesh
- a package of white and red sparkly tulle
- 15 red sparkle pipe cleaners
- 1 roll of red sequin ribbon
- mini silver Christmas ornaments
- hot glue
- hot glue gun
Step 1: Cut and roll your wreath supplies
Let’s start this easy DIY Christmas wreath tutorial by cutting the red sparkle pipe cleaners in half. Then proceed with cutting all of the sequin ribbon, decorative mesh and sparkly tulle into 6 inch/15 cm lengths. The mesh will naturally curl up, which is superb for this craft, as we need to roll each piece into a tighter tube. For the tulle, best to roll it diagonally.
Step 2: Prepare mesh wreath bunches
For the second step of the DIY tutorial, you will need to gather all your bunches. Take 4 pieces of mesh, tulle, and ribbon. Use at least 2-3 pieces of red mesh for the bottom layer of each bunch. Lay the pieces on top of each other in the pattern of a snowflake. Then take a sparkly pipe cleaner and wrap it around each bunch to secure it, twisting at last 3-4 times. Repeat this activity for the rest of the bunches. Around 30 should come out.
Step 3: Attach bunches to wreath frame
Time to attach your magical mesh wreath bunches to the frame! Lay each bunch on the front of the wreath. Then go to its back and grab the two ends of the chenille stem. Attach them to the two inner wires on the wreath form by twisting the two ends of the chenille stem together 3 times, around the wires. The wreath form should end up with 5 attached mesh bunches.
Step 4: Glue ornaments to mesh wreath
Before we move on to the next step, first lay your Christmas mesh wreath on the table to fluff its bunches to get the look you want. Then take the little silver ornaments and prepare your hot glue gun. Apply hot glue to the side of each ornament and place them around your wreath. Make sure they are tightly glued, so they don’t fall off. Congratulations, you have completed your red sparkly deco mesh wreath!
