If you’re ready to get started on Christmas decor you’re in the right place. If you’d rather be decorating for Fall view our Fall swag wreath.
10″ Deco mesh
A Wire coat hanger
Deco mesh tubing
Wire edged ribbon
Small plastic ornaments
Small Christmas sign
Begin by stretching a wire coat hanger into this shape.
Next attach a chenille stem at the bottom of the hanger. Twist three times in the center to secure. Unroll about 18″ of mesh from the roll pleat eight times gathering down the center of the mesh. Cut it from the roll making the first ruffle. Pinch the middle and secure it with the chenille stem and fluff it.
Attach 5 more chenille stems evenly on the hanger. Then make five more ruffles and attach them. Fluff them to fill any gaps.
Cut six 8″ lengths of ribbon and V-cut the ends. Pinch in the center and place inside each tie twisting twice to secure.
Use deco mesh tubing to make a small loop. Place on top of ribbon and twist tie twice to secure. Repeat until reaching the first loop. Trim each tie.
Scatter small plastic Christmas ornaments throughout mesh testing the placement until you’re happy and glue in place. Next make and attach a bow. I make all of our bows using a Bowdabra.
Finally add a small festive sign to finish off your wreath. You can find the one we used at Dollar Tree.
