It was like Christmas for me this year as I pulled out all of our Christmas decorations to put up because I kept finding Christmas craft supplies I had bought last year for next to nothing at after Christmas sales. It was so much fun finding it all and then coming up with a project to use them all for. I couldn’t remember what I had originally bought the stuff for, but I decided to use most of it to put together a new wreath for our front door.
Oh, and I’m sure this is not the professional way to make a mesh garland wreath, but it certainly worked for me and I thought it was pretty easy to do.
- basic greenery wreath (got mine for $5 at Hobby Lobby, originally $10)
- red mesh garland
- green garland
- ornaments in different shapes/colors
- floral wire
- glitter snowflakes
1. Start by taking your mesh garland and bunching and pinching it. Use the greenery twigs to wrap around the pinched areas and hold it in place.
2. Follow step number one using your second color of mesh garland.
3. Tie strips of red and green ribbon around branches, sometimes two on a branch.
4. Use floral wire to attach ornaments and snowflakes onto branches.
Create clusters of interest. The more you add, the better it starts to look!
