This gorgeous spring wreath is soooo easy! It is definitely beginner friendly even if you have never used deco mesh before. The hard part is finding this awesome window pane mesh and I’ve done that for you! The only two places I’ve ever seen it in this lime green are Mardi Gras Outlet and Craft Outlet. Click on either link to go directly to the product page. This mesh is a paper type mesh and that is what makes it so easy to work with. The regular deco mesh to me is like Saran Wrap, it only sticks to what you don’t want it too, lol! So here’s the scoop…..
- Lime Green Window Pane Mesh (2) available HERE (mardigrasoutlet.com) and HERE (craftoutlet.com)
- 18″ Wreath Form
- Lime Green Chenille Sticks
- Greenery Picks and Easter/Spring Picks – They have so many to choose from and the prices are good. There’s I used are Pastel Swirl Easter Egg Spray (1), Pastel Curly Foam Spray (2), Pastel Foam Bead Spray (2). They are so big for the price you will think they sent you the wrong piece! THIS is a link to all of their spring picks if you want to browse and pick your own. The greenery is THIS bush from Hobby Lobby. I used 2 of them as well.
- Lacy Burlap Ribbon purchased from Walmart
Start by cutting your chenille sticks in half. Scrunch up the end of the mesh and wire it to the frame.
Measure (or eyeball) about 12″ of the mesh and repeat the process. I usually do 3-4 bunches between each cross bar. When I say 3-4, I literally mean I alternate 3 in one then 4 in the next one. Do that all the way around the wreath until you meet where you started. The back of the wreath should look something like this.
For the Spray, I made two bunches with one of each spray and a greenery bush in them. Turn the bunches stem to stem and wire them together with a few [whole] chenille sticks. Then wire the whole thing to the wreath on the bottom left side.
Make a bow however you usually make one (God speed with that one. Bow making is my nemesis!). Use the bow to cover up your mechanics where you wired the two bunches together and wire it to the frame also.
You could glue some more eggs here and there around the wreath, and/or wire a sign on the upper right side of the wreath. I did not do that. I had originally planned to but decided against it because I didn’t find anything that I thought added to the overall look. I think it is stunning like it is! It’s just so springy and light! I love it so much I don’t even want to put it outside! So I think it’s going to have to go in my entryway. If you try this project I would love to see yours.
