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!

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.
Lay out the mesh on a flat surface and cut strips about 2″ in width.
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.
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.
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.
So in 5 easy and quick steps, you can kick start this season of orange, pumpkins and all things flavored spice. How do you start the seasonal decorating in your home?
