Do you enjoy making wreaths? With several boxes full of various seasonal wreaths in the garage, I’m clearly a “wreath sucker”,  influenced by the pretty front door decor all over the blogosphere. However, the faster I can get the wreath on the door, I can then move on to the next seasonal project!

– Wire wreath form (I used an 18″ form)
– Orange mesh
– Green mesh
– Solid orange and green ribbon
– Patterned orange and green ribbon
– Scissors

Step #1:
Cover the wire wreath with solid orange ribbon, leaving  a small section (approx. 6-8″) reserved for solid green ribbon. Tuck the ends under the wrapped ribbon or secure with a piece of clear tape.

Step #3:
Sitting next to your pile of mesh strips, begin to tie each individual strip onto the wreath. Repeat the same process for the green mesh.

Step #4:
Weave the patterned orange ribbon through the orange mesh. Do the same for green. I opted for a loopy pattern, skipping every 2-3 mesh ties.

Step #5:
Cut approx. 8″ pieces of ribbon in green, orange and brown. Assemble them together and fold them over with pattern side out. Flip the wreath over so the backside is facing you. Place them in the middle of the green mesh and use one green mesh strip to secure them to the wreath.

    That is just too adorable! It reminds me of when I made a pumpkin tutu costume for my middle daughter. This would be great on pretty much any Halloween door. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!

    Victoria, I appreciate this wreath idea! Always looking for an easy one to do! And I’m thinking of all the mesh remnants I’ve got & have no clue what to do with until now. Wonder if you could do the same thing with a straw wreath? It’s really pretty though! Pinned.
