For this project you will need about 7 rolls of mesh ribbon, a 12" wire wreath form, prepackaged and wired burlap leaves in several different colors, and pipe cleaners and floral wire.
DIY Fall Wreath From Dollar Tree Supplies
I love making wreaths for all the seasons, and the Dollar Tree stores have a great selection of wreath making supplies to choose from, especially in the Fall. I found this great mesh ribbon for Fall this year and decided to make this adorable wreath with little stuffed owls on it.
It has been a while since I worked with mesh ribbon so I decided to try something new. I cut up the ribbon in to 8 inch lengths, turned two opposite corners of the cutout together and pinched in the center to create a bow tie. I then twisted a cut length of pipe cleaner around the middle of the bow and attached it directly to the wire wreath form. I repeated this process over and over until the wreath was full.
Since the mesh ribbon is very curly it quickly fills up the wreath form to a very full wreath.
Since the burlap leaves were pre-wired, it was very easy to attach them to the wreath form among the mesh ribbon to add a different texture to the wreath.
The two stuffed owls were easy to attach as well but inserting a floral wire through the back of them and attaching them directly to the wire wreath form. The final result is a very easy and adorable, and very brightly colored Fall wreath.
