Making Memories: Christmas Mesh Wreath

If you’re one for the full and whimsical wreaths then this is for you!

Now there is not a real certain set list of things you need. Just mesh (wide and narrow mesh) , ribbon, an assortment of decorations, and something to put in the middle of the wreath. The absolute necessities is a good glue gun and scissors. Because of her decorations, the red twisty thing, she required wire cutters.

First put the wider mesh on, starting at the bottom. You can do this by scrunching up a small section and wrapping a wreath branch around it.Do this about every six or seven inches. Then do the same thing with the smaller mesh. Remember, making it even is going to make it look better.
Next cut the ribbon into strips of about 14 to 16 inches, cutting the ends to make that V-shape. You will be adding the ribbon the same way you secured the mesh. make sure to spread the ribbon out. She did her’s with three ribbons a time and put seven sections of ribbon on the wreath.Then start adding all your different decorations. She used bulbs, some kind of glitter ball sticks, and red twisty stick. Use whatever goes with your theme. I think having a reindeer with some jingle bells and gold and red would be cute. The only thing I believe she used the hot glue for was the ornaments.

Now at this point we have a very full wreath. But the one thing its missing is the center piece! Attach it by wrapping the wreath around wherever is convenient. With the blog’s centerpiece, she had wire at the top so it was very easy. Depending on your center piece, you may need to use that ol’ trusty hot glue gun.

And there you have it! A whimsical wreath from Kristen’s Creations!
