Curly Mesh Wreath DIY

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

I just love making wreaths for our house! My time to do so has been pretty limited the past four seven months or so due to an extremely clingy little chick, but I've been wanting to make a curly deco mesh wreath forever, so I've been working on one section by section and finally finished it up! It's very whimsical and I just love it! Here's how I did it.

What you need:

Wire Wreath form
Deco Mesh
Pipe Cleaner

What you do:

Cut 10 inch strips of the deco mesh (you need lots of them)
Roll them tightly in the center and pinch together ( I did sections of 3)
Secure tightly together with pipe cleaner, then secure to the wreath form

I did 4-5 groups of mesh per section of wreath for a total of about  32 bundles give or take depending on how full you want the wreath

Easy as pie and not really all that time consuming. I have a few for sale in my Etsy shop now, just go to Shut the Front Door

Working on burlap, yarn and bookpage wreaths next! Hopefully they won't take three months to finish like this  one did! I found the tutorial for doing mine via Pinterest, which led me to the cutest blog, Miss Kopy Kat. Y'all need to check it out if you love DIY projects.


  1. What size is your wire wreath here?

  2. This looks like it will be fun and easy to make. Can't wait to get started. Thanks for your easy to follow instructions!

  3. You are very welcome! I hope it turns out just the way you want :)

  4. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful wreath!

  5. I make this kind of wreath too but instead I wrap the pipe cleaner on the wreath form itself first. Then I take three sections if cut mesh and twist the pipe cleaner over it.
