Christmas Mesh Wreath Tutorial!



Are you thinking about Christmas yet?



It's almost time to start decorating!



I decided to go ahead and do a tutorial on how to make a Christmas mesh wreath. I am starting to get really busy so I wanted to get this post up while I have time. I can also tell from my "Posts" section in blogger that my mesh wreath tutorial back in 2009 has been my most popular post so far! Looks like you guys like the mesh wreaths and want to learn how to make your own. I hope this tutorial helps!




Keep in mind that there are lots of different items you could use in your own wreath. I love making my wreaths all different...some have a Santa in the middle, or a present, and even a gingerbread man. Those are just a few ideas...the possibilities are endless!



Just be creative!



I gathered most of my supplies from Hobby Lobby, Michael's and Kirkland's.


By the way, you will also need a glue gun, scissors, and wire cutters.



Let's just jump right in! I really do think the Christmas mesh wreaths are the easiest to make. The reason is because there is alot of greenery to attach things too. Also, all of the greenery is wired so you can just wrap the greenery around the mesh and ribbon to secure it. I always start adding the mesh at the bottom of the wreath. The mesh is really wide, so you will need to scrunch!


Start adding the mesh all around the wreath wrapping the greenery around it about every 6 to 7 inches.

Until it looks like this


Next, start adding the smaller mesh the same way all around the wreath wrapping the greenery around it.



Until it looks like this... try to make it as even as you can.


Next, cut your choice of ribbons into 14 to 16 inch strips cutting the the edges into Vs. Add the ribbons all around the wreath wrapping the greenery around them. As you can see I used three different coordinating ribbons. As you know...I am a ribbon freak! lol...



It will look like this...there are seven sections of of ribbons all around the wreath. Be sure and spread all of those pretty ribbons out!


Next, hot glue some ornaments in between the ribbon. I couldn't hold the glue gun and take a pic at the same time! lol...












Then it will look like this...it's shaping up!


Next, hot glue in the fun stuff! I found these glitter ball sticks at Michael's. There are actually three on a stem. I ended up using seven pieces, so you will need to buy three stems.


Alternate them all around the wreath until it looks like this...



Next, I cut the curly sticks

and added them all around the wreath. I was going to hot glue them in, but ended up just wrapping the greenery around the ends. That was alot easier and they were secure... almost done!





Now for the final touch...the snowman!
He happened to have a wire at the top so I wired the greenery around it to secure it.



I also wired the greenery around the wire that attaches the "Welcome" sign.
No hot glue needed! However, depending on what you use, sometimes hot glue is needed.



All done! It's fun and whimsical!



Here it is on my door...fun and festive!









Remember, the possibilities are endless! Have fun with the items you pick out. If you make a Christmas mesh wreath I would love for you to e-mail me a picture. I would like to post them on my blog like I did at Easter. So get to work! I want to see what you come up with.



If I have left something out or you have questions please let me know! I am not an expert on these tutorials...lol.



I have listed more items in my Etsy store, but alot of them are already gone. I will be listing more as often as I can so be sure and check back. Alot of my items are one of a kind!



I hope you will come back on Thursday for my "Share Your Creations Party" I will have the linky tool up on Wed. evening.




Have a great week!

I'm joining Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday

I just want to tell you "THANK YOU" Kristen for posting such a great, easy tutorial! You are soo creative and so talented and I just adore you! I know it takes time out of your day to post such an extensive lesson, so I wanted to tell you I appreciate you and I'm going to make one of these!! Woo Hoo! Also, I'm an Arkansas girl, too! :)

Linda said...

How beautiful, Kristen! I have looked everywhere for the green with the red stripe mesh (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Joanne's)........ any suggestions? I really like that combination!

Linda said...

Beautiful!!! It's totally amazing! I love the green with red stripe mesh but Hobby Lobby, Michael's or JoAnne's has it. Any suggestions for anywhere online? I love that combo!!!

Thank you for sharing this with us!

michelleml said...

beautiful what is the mesh stuff called? Do you find it in the ribbon section?

Kristens Creations said...

Linda, I think I bought the small green mesh at Kirkland's last year, but I'm not positive. You might check there...

Michelle, the mesh should be in the Christmas ribbon section at Hobby Lobby. I'm not sure if Michael's is carrying it or not. I hope you find it! Kristen

Kristens Creations said...

I use a suction cup hook to attach it to my front door.

Linda said...

Thank you! I'll call Kirkland's tomorrow. Didn't even know they carried mesh ribbon! Learn something new every day!

Linda said...

Just FYI anyone else looking for the mesh ribbon. If you have a Ben Franklin in your area, they have both sizes, different patterns for Christmas or solid colors and they are on sale (not sure when it ends) for $5.99 a roll (narrow and wide). Saw the wide roll at Kirklands for $12.99, but not the smaller green with red stripe.

Southern Fried Gal said...

Hey girl - I did a mesh garland tutorial a few years back and it is getting lots of hits from pinterest, too. I was going to do a mesh wreath to match and found your post - so I just linked it to the end of my tutorial. I hope you don't mind. Love giving shout-outs to my fellow Arkansas gals!

Katie said...

Someone pinned this tutorial on Pinterest and I'm so glad they did! Your wreath is gorgeous! I am going to make one next weekend...after I track down all the supplies. ;) Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

Robin Peacock said...

I am pretty Crafty, But after seeing this wreath I was "Awestruck" it's very Whimsical and beautiful.. Great Job, Also when I do wreaths I tie

So Beautiful!! I am doing tomorrow! Thanks A LOT!!

thecoolmom said...

Thanks so much for posting this tutorial. I've been seeing these mesh wreaths everywhere and wondered exactly how to do them. I can't wait to try this!

Creative Claudia said...

I loved watching your site. It was so informative with step by step easy directions for us to follow, with such beautiful results at the end. I looking forward to looking up other things that you do.

This is so cute. It makes me want to go to one of my local craft shops and buy some fun things to make one.

Wanda Nieves said...

Hi Kristens. I live in Puerto Rico and your home is beautiful. Is an inspiration for me. Would you please tell me the name of the color of your home. This yellow color is beautiful. Thanks for the tutorial. And remember Jesus love you. This is the reason of Christmast. Love

Heather said...

What a very cute idea! You could do one for every season/holiday. I wasn't even sure that there was a evergreen-ish wreath inside all that! Thanks for the great tutorial.

LoopyLeah said...

how would you add lights to this?

Lori Jeanne said...

I own a hair salon in a very small upscale shopping center. All the tenants try to outdo each other with their door decorations for christmas......I am so going to win this year! Hands Down

Barbara Ann said...

What is the width of the red mesh you used? The wreath is just gorgeous! Snowmen and the traditional red and green are my favorites. Thanks for sharing!

TerriYouwish said...

You are fabulous! I see these gorgeous wreaths and am all "oh, I could never make that!" but YOU make me believe I can! So... thank you! That'll be my project this week. Would you have some suggestions so it would not scratch my door? Last year's wreath scratched our newly painted door... no good.

Absolutely beautiful work! I love it. If you don't mind me asking....how much money did you have tied up in making this wreath?

Shannon said...

Kristen, how do you hold up your wreath to put it together? I have used a door hanger but I wish I had something for the tabletop. Any suggestions?

Kristens Creations said...

Just now reading the latest comments...Christy asked how much this wreath costs to make. It costs about $35 if I recall.

Terriyouwish asked about what to do to prevent it from scratching the door. You could always cut some green felt into the shape of the wreath and glue it to the back.

Shannon asked what I use to hold up my wreath while putting it together. Someone made me a wreath holder out of wood. It's basically two pieces of wood nailed together at the top to form a triangle with two small pieces of wood on each side. Kind of like a sawhorse. There is a nail at the top used to hold the wreath. I'm sorry if that doesn't make sense..kind of hard to explain.

If you have any questions I will be checking this post regularly and try to answer them if I can. Thank you!

Melanie said...

I'm curious about the width of the mesh you used too. I bought a 21" roll from Hobby Lobby but I would think it would need cut?
PS The wreath is gorgeous and I cannot wait to make it :D

Linda Bourguet said...

OMG, thank you so much for this tutorial! I am very crafty but NOT when it comes to anything floral! I had to try this, you made it look so simple, and I LOVE the way my wreath came out! Can't wait for Christmas!

Anonymous said...

Love this wreath! However, it would be very helpful if there was an actual list of supplies needed for the project.

Hoots said...

I love this wreath so much! I have bought all of the supplies except the smaller mesh. What size is it and have you seen any this year? I have found some solid ones, but no prints! I'm so frustrated!

Kimberly said...

Thanks for the inspiration! I love this idea! I used a wire wreath starter, but I like both looks. Definitely making these wreaths for every holiday! Check it out... http://sandsunglassesandsunscreen.blogspot.com/

Kathy Y said...

Hi Kristen-I saw your beautiful wreath on Pinterest and I have bought all the supplies to make one. What would be awesome is a photo of your wreath holder you have if its possible for you to post one. I believe that would be an extremely useful tool. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!!

Kristen...tried making this wreath without the snomwman center... looks great !!! If you were to sell this wreath without the snowman center...what would be a fair asking price?

Found you through Pinterest. Thanks for the fabulous tutorial. I've made 3. 2 for my double doors and one for my mom's house. Fantastic and easy to follow. Thank you!!

Unknown said...

Okay, I sat down today and followed your instructions (had purchased all of the supplies a couple of weeks ago) and set out to put my wreath together. Overall, I think it came out okay. I couldn't find the green/red striped mesh (at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels), but I was happy to find all of the other coordinating ribbons and most of the ornamental things.

Really wasn't too difficult. Little tricky trying to figure out how to secure the red mesh ribbon, but then I just grabbed a piece of the greenery from the wreath and wrapped it around. I did use some green ties to secure the small ribbons to the wreath.

Thanks so much for posting your instructions. Really helped out.

Unfortunately, I am not keeping this wreath. I agreed to participate in a fundraiser for a local charity, so its being donated, but I might just spruce up the one I made a few years ago.

Meg said...

I can't wait to try this! I picked up a wooden wreath at the local Opportunity Shop thrift store for $1 with a measly bow, and now with your post I can go back & get the supplies I need to transform it. Thanks for sharing and taking the time to do a tutorial.

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I can't wait to try! On the ribbon, do you just buy at Hobby Lobby & Michaels, or do you buy from an online supplier? And do you have better luck with wire ribbon or without wire?

Invest within a standard coffee grinder. Grinding your beans just before brewing leaves aromatic, flavorful oils intact and tends to make coffee taste fresher.

Thank you so much Kristen, for sharing this with us. I have 5 graves to decorate at Christmas time, and you have just made my decorating much easier. I have never done a mesh wreath, but now I can thanks to you. I hope you have a joyful holiday!!

Renee said...

The wreath is beautiful. Can't wait to make one. :-)

Thank you for the tutorial! I successfully made my first mesh wreath, and am hoping to make lantern swags next.

I love how down to earth and fun this tutorial is. Thanks for sharing!

I love your wreath! I have been making them just using the wire wreath frames, but I am going to try using the greenery-wreath. These look better and seem a lot easier than what I'm doing! Thanks!

My Photo
I'm a 40yr. old mother of 1. I've been married for 19 years to a wonderful man, Kevin. We have one son together named Chase who is 14. We live in a small town in Arkansas and have a dog named Sassy, a cat named Coco and now a chinchilla, Tiki. My husband is a Database Administrator and I have my own business called Kristen's Creations where I make and sell a variety of crafts. I worked in a shop as a floral designer for 15 yrs. until it closed. My former boss decided to retire and lease out her building. I enjoy crafting, decorating, and hanging out with my family.
