Deco Mesh Easter Wreath
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies. This month I decided to make this Deco Mesh Easter Wreath.
All in all I spent about $3.00 on this project. The peeps and carrots are both from The Dollar Tree. The peeps are actually headbands that I cut the top off of! I only used 1 of each color so the cost for those is $1.50 and the carrots came 4 to a pack for $1! I also purchased the wreath form from The Dollar Tree for $1.00.
Both colors of deco mesh were purchased on after Christmas (2017) clearance and the Easter ribbon was purchased for $0.10 a roll on after Easter clearance. I am definitely a bargain shopper!
Deco Mesh Easter Wreath
2 different colors large deco mesh
2 different colors net tulle
Cut pipe cleaners in half. Using 1 color (I did not cut it off the roll until I was finished), bunch up the end and secure to wreath form outer edge with pipe cleaner. Then move down about 6-10 inches on the mesh and bunch up again. Attach to the inner edge of the wreath form. Alternate attaching to inner and outer edges until you get back to where you started.
Use your 2nd color deco mesh and attach to wreath form in similar manner as above except attach to opposite (inner or outer) side of wreath form than first color.
Use tulle to make little “pom-poms”. Make 5 or 6 of each color to fill in your wreath between the deco mesh. Just wrap it around your hand about 6-8 times. Slide it off your hand and cut edges open. Use the same pipe cleaners you used to attach deco mesh and twist around the center of your tulle. Pull out the tulle (like making tissue paper flowers!) to puff up your “pom-pom”.
Tie some Easter ribbon around the wreath to fill in any bare areas. Then glue on your felt peeps and carrots to the bottom of the wreath. Make a loopy bow out of your Easter ribbon and attach to the top or bottom of your wreath.
That’s it – stand back and admire your new creation!
