    Am I missing something? The directions go from placing braided mesh glued to the cardboard on the wreath form to seeing a picture of the finished product and you saying that the mesh will fray so spray it with glue. I don't see instructions on how and where to cut the braid to get the flower. Or is that what you do? If I've missed it somewhere, please let me know. It's absolutely beautiful, so I'd like to give it a try. Thanks!

    Do you offer a tutorial for the "Sunflower Poof Wreath"? It's gorgeous and I've searched, but couldn't find it.

      I searched Pinterest and found something similar - thank you for answering, though.

    Beautiful job! Each time I've used it unraveled terribly. How do you keep it from unraveling?

      Cut mesh outside with a soldering iron. DO NOT cut indoors. Mesh melts back on itself and frays a lot less when cut with One lady shows cutting it with a bag sealer. I bought an expensive sealer off and still could not get it to cut all the way thru. You can get a soldering for less than $15.
